I really enjoyed reading this buddy.

I'll never forgot the look of warmth and appreciation on Adam's face that day in Palm Springs as we all stood and listened to the speech you gave at the ceremony.

Thanks for sharing that, Wally.
I find you to be odious, abhorrent and insegrevious.

That is an amazing time you were privileged to spend with your hero. When you are a celebrity like that, it' had to be extremely comforting for him to know he had such a good trustworthy friend in you. Thank you so much for sharing this with us Wally. I know this is harder on you than most of us. We lost a good one. We will all miss him.

Great tribute, Wally. I´m hearing the KELO interview and I got a stupid grin on my face. That voice! So great.

Great remembrance. Thanks for sharing this.

Since Adam addresses "Dennis" multiple times in the interview clips, it might be worth noting that early in his career Wally used the radio name Dennis Jimenez (a fact I just gleaned from Wikipedia).
