Some sad news to pass along this morning. The star of the classic 1960s TV version of Batman has died. Adam West was 88.
West had trouble finding work after the television show went off the air, but in recent years, he found new fame as the voice of the mayor of Quahog on Family Guy.
A family spokesperson said West was battling with leukemia. In the statement, the family said "He was and always will be our hero."
The radio guy in me always loved his smooth deep voice. As a kid, I'd wake up a half hour early to catch Batman reruns at 6AM before school and then race home after school to watch more episodes.
