Gay 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:

LABI's Waguespack pokes Edwards tax delay, promotes Louisiana Legislative outlook

Quin Hillyer: Freedom Caucus,hardliners "just Screwed the American people"
Trumpcare loss a mere distraction from RussiaGate
In the age of rapid response, social media, President and CEO of the Louisiana Association of Business and Industry took to twitter to apparently poke the Democrat Governor and to promote his own tour of his own legislative package, or legislative outlook tour, beginning today.

The GOP will likely claim that the bogus “ Assisted suicide counseling” will still be covered since Obamacare remains the law of the land. That’s good news for GOP legislators who planned on voting “yes” on its repeal. The rich, also, should be happy the old law remains because they have wounds that need tending after the mega tax breaks for them that were inserted in Trumpcare went the way of leeching. The failure to repeal, of course, is the Democrats fault. Trump said so, but he has reason to be happy, too. The health care debacle managed, if just for an hour, or two, to deflect attention away from Russia.
