LOS ANGELES (AP) - A judge has rejected a bid by Casey Kasem's daughter to establish a conservatorship for the ailing radio personality.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Lesley Green however urged lawyers Tuesday to reach an agreement that would allow three of Kasem's adult children to visit their father.

Kasem's children have said they are being blocked from seeing their father by their father's wife, Jean. Marshall Grossman, an attorney for Jean Kasem, says a proposal for visits by the children has been rejected, but they will work to reach an agreement.

Court records state Kasem is suffering from advanced Parkinson's disease.

The 81-year-old gained fame with his radio music countdown shows, "American Top 40" and "Casey's Top 40," and was also the voice of Shaggy in the cartoon "Scooby Doo."
