Casey Kasem: Hello, I’m Casey Kasem. You know, tonight in the #1 spot, a song for a good cause. A cause most people don’t even think about. It all began when TV and radio personality, Rick Dees, and retro-psychadelic singer, Lenny Kravitz, walked into a famous L.A. bistro. They ordered a Caeser salad. But the famous chef told the hungry duo he couldn’t prepare a Caeser salad because the raw eggs so vital to the dressing were not from free-range chickens. Rick Dees flew into a rage, saying, “Chickens are like you and me, except they’re chickens.” He and Kravitz called recent Oscar winner, Whoopi Goldberg. She said, “Listen, my man, we got to do something.. something for the millions of chickens all over the country who live in tiny, overcrowded pens.” Together, they gathered some of the biggest names in the music business. The result, you’re about to see. The title is simple: “Musicians For Free-Range Chickens”.
