Pat Shingleton: I've arrived
Everything is "greening-up," and blossoming. A quiet moment yesterday brought back memories of March 7, 1977. I boarded a plane in Kansas City, enroute to Baton Rouge for the first time. The runways were plowed earlier that morning, piled to the sides of the tarmac. Arriving in Baton Rouge, I was greeted by the late, Carlton Creemens, blue skies and temperatures in the 60s. During our journey into Baton Rouge, it was pleasing to see "green" along the Interstate, further enhanced around City Park Lake. After visiting with station manager, the late Tommy Gibbens, our next stop was on Highland Road for lunch. Mike Anderson delivered a tray of food that looked like "bait." Carleton had an excellent eye for television talent. Great memories.
