Arrived in March, On-the-Air in April...

March 7, 2018

Everything is “greening-up,” from golf courses to lawns.  Our traditional display of azaleas is also in their early stages and with the budding trees, our allergies will advance.  On this date in 1977 I boarded a plane in Kansas City for my first trip to Baton Rouge. The runways in K.C.were plowed earlier that morning, piled to the sides of the tarmac. Arriving in Baton Rouge, I was greeted by Carlton Creemens, blue skies and a temperature in the 60s. During our journey into Baton Rouge I thoroughly enjoyed noticing the “green” along the Interstate, further enhanced around City Park Lake. After visiting with the station manager, Tommy Gibbens, our next stop was on Highland Road, where Carlton ordered lunch. Mike Anderson's was originally located just outside the gates of LSU. Mike delivered a tray of food to the table that reminded me of “bait.” Carleton had an excellent eye for television talent and those first two years still offer great memories.
