Sounds of New Orleans: Hap Glaudi and Buddy Diliberto
Written by 

hapGay Glaudi Bennett's Letter to the Editor was in Tuesday's The Times-Picayune. She noted that her father's broadcasting style (WWL-TV, WWL Radio) was a unique and endearing style -- folksy and definitely Ninth Ward.  She wrote that Hap paved the way for Buddy D, Frank Davis, Bobby Hebert and Deke Bellavia to get into sports-casting. "Who would have hired Buddy D had Hap not proved that a true New Orleanian can command the airways, accent and all," she wrote.

So, for those who remember Hap Glaudi and Buddy D., here is a little nostalgia..For those who never heard either one of them, here's a bit of New Orleans:

Bayoubuzz Note: We New Orleanans do not talk strange.  The rest of the world does.

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?
