I recall that Jones was eventually left the station - see below. Adam retired from radio after 40 years and Bob Allen, his radio partner for 17 years, retired from WAKR just a few weeks ago.
Adam married a girl who graduated from Moline High, someone who played in the Glass Menagerie play at school. Later he married Debra. He and Debra have been wed for 35 years. They run a pottery business, which makes only communion ware:

Melo-Cream was like "studio C" for WQUA. Past employees still talk about the place, and it's usually one of the first things they mention when talking about Moline and the station. If I remember correctly, weren't there pictures of all the WQUA talent, on the wall behind the counter?
Adam was indeed a unique personality for the station. Very entertaining for the early morning listeners -- and there were a lot of them. But I must correct something, Greg. Adam was never fired. He tired of working overnights and was moved to an 8:00pm to Midnight shift for awhile. Then he and Bob Allen (known as Gordon Vann when he was at KSTT) were paired together in mid-days. It worked quite well and the Adam and Bob Show got hired away. They eventually wound up in Akron, OH.
He did indeed marry a gal who was in the Glass Menagerie at MHS, but they later divorced. He later married another gal from Moline and they're still very happily married and run Ocepek Pottery near Akron.
