Fervent Wish

In that program, Adams stated that he had fought with the choice to retire, adding that although it would be his “fervent wish” to continue broadcasting forever, his health would not permit it.

Adams supported numerous charities, including Cars 4 Heroes, and that “He pointed out the little absurdities we all deal with, making us laugh at him and ourselves.”

“Slacker was a voice of and for Kansas City, and was recognized by his peers as a Radio Legend. Sadly, the voice has stopped speaking.

“Slacker requested that you offer prayers for his family and all those impacted by cancer, if you so desire. And today, pick up the phone and give that person you haven’t had a chance to talk to a chat. That would please Slacker.”
