Join us for the 3rd Annual Tribute to Casey Kasem , legendary radio personality and voice actor, on what would have been his birthday, 92nd birthday (b. 1932).

Kasem, who passed away in 2014, is buried in Oslo, Norway, which may seem like an unexpected final resting place for an American icon.

On this special occasion, friend of the club Christian Sømme will act as our tour guide as we meet at Vestre gravlund (Monolitveien entrance, across from Skøyen skole) and make our way to Kasem's unmarked grave. Feel free to bring a little flag (American or Norwegian) or perhaps some small flowers to adorn the grave. We can take a moment to remember Kasem's contributions to the world of radio and his dedication to promoting a love of music.

After visiting the grave, we will enjoy some cake and bubbles!

Please register so we know how many bubbles we need.
