Adam West and Batman hold a special place in my heart, it’s sad to see a hometown icon pass away.
I loved Batman when I was eight years old and the show was new. The world of the sixties was a turbulent and scary place, but the Batman was always on duty and was always on twice weekly. I had to make sure I finished my accordion practice before Batman came on TV. My mother’s deal, “no TV until you practice one half-hour!” (God I hated the accordion…)
When we moved to Walla Walla, Washington in 1969 it took me a couple years to find out that this was Batman’s hometown. Imagine my surprise and joy!
Batman I salute you!
