About The Artist

Curly haired Slim Adams was singing and playing the guitar by the time he was 12 years old and by the time he was 17, his personal appearances around the state of Indiana were making quite a name for him.

Slim got his first break when he auditioned for radio station WANE in Ft. Wayne, Indiana and ended up with his own show. He stayed with them until he was heard by Bob Sievers on WOWO as part of the "Country Music Talent Contest" in which Slim was both a judge and a guest star. As a result of that, he moved to WOWO, a 50,000 watt station broadcasting at 1190am. He had a show that aired every Saturday morning at 10:45am.
