LIVING LEGENDS FOUNDATION CHAIRMAN DAVID LINTON said, "We lost a good one in VERNON. Our relationship went back to the days he was a college rep at CBS RECORDS and I was programming my college station at SHAW. As the years progressed and our friendship grew, we discovered we were Kappa Alpha Psi frat brothers. When he became a lawyer, he even did some work with my wife ELEANOR at KAPER RECORDS. VERNON SLAUGHTER was a consummate professional and a great human being."
