Adam West and Peter Sallis, RIP -- June 11, 2017

This morning NPR announced that Adam West had died.  I was a little kid when the Batman television show premiered.  It spurred my life-long interest in Batman.  I didn't realize until later how he was not playing it straight.  I was happy that he found lots of work for the rest of his life.
I don't remember where I first saw or heard Peter Sallis.  I remember when he was Ratty in The Wind in the Willows.  I remember when he was Wallace in Nick Park's Wallace and Gromit animations.  At some point a local PBS station started running Last of the Summer Wine
