David Adams, who broadcast gospel music

October 31, 1997

BOSTON (AP) _ David Adams, who broadcast gospel music on Boston radio stations for more than 20 years, died Tuesday of a heart attack. He was 63.

Adams was known for his catch phrase, ``Mr. My, My, My ... David Adams.″

He got his broadcasting license in 1968 and became religious director of WILD-AM. For 15 years, he was host of a gospel show that began at dawn. Then he had a daily show on the all-gospel station, WCAS, which later became WLVG.

He worked there until 1987, when he was forced to retire because of an aneurysm. However he went to benefit concerts, and appeared as a master of ceremonies.

In 1991, he returned to WILD, where he had a Sunday morning gospel show.

Paul Hayes

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) _ Paul Hayes, a country music star known as Slim to fans of the ``Iowa Barn Dance Frolic″ with Andy Williams, died Tuesday of a respiratory ailment. He was 80.

Hayes achieved fame in the 1940s and ’50s, singing and fiddling over WHO radio with a band called the Buckaroos.

His big break came when Williams _ who went on to become a television and recording star _ mentioned to Hayes that there was an opening on the Buckaroos band.
