Bat-Signal Gets Lit Over SoCal Skies To Honor The Late Adam West

LOS ANGELES (LIVE 105) – Hollywood becomes Gotham City as the Bat-Signal is set to shine over Southern California in honor of the late Adam West.

Mayor Eric Garcetti announced over Twitter that the Bat-Signal will be lit at City Hall at 9:00pm, Thursday night.
