Joe Adams was one of the original crew on Hour 25. He did, among other things; the original theme (with music by early techno group Can called Dizzy Dizzy), he also was the board engineer after Mitch Harding and before Burt Handelsman. He recorded conventions and also hosted the show on several occassions, particularly when they related to comic books, sci-fi art, and convention news.
He did many other programs at the station. He was the original board op to launch Roy Tuckman's Something's Happening, did the 10th Anniversary program on the Kennedy assassination (1963-1973), produced a reading of The Hobbit for the christmas reading, engineered Folkscene (for a while), Music Black and White, and Morning news. He also had his own show Adams and Roebuck.
After leaving KPFK he continued to frequent the station on Friday nights, did some research for, and had dinners with, Mike Hodel and later Harlan Ellison. It was during that period he wrote and produced Chapel Perilous which is now available on www.archive.org so anyone can download the entire four hour series.
