That narrator sounds familiar but who is it.

ETA: I was thinking the narrator of the 30 for 30 Ghost's of Mississippi.

I don't have a clue.

But he does sound very familiar.

That's Wright Thompson. Not him, he's a young-ish guy. Would have been in diapers when this was made

I do remember seeing this documentary and I think the narrator was Arthur Hardy and the radio personality was Keith Rush of WSMB radio where some of this was filmed. Mr. Rush was a staunch LSU supporter along with Mr. Augie Cross who ran the year round Tiger booster club.
Arthur Hardy is the publisher of the Mardi Gras Guide magazine.

I remember it well. In the credits it says the narrator is Kevin Caffrey. Have no idea who he is, he was not a local tv or radio personality. I tried to get the rights to market this documentary 15 years ago, but WYES said it would be impossible to track down everyone involved to get the necessary releases. WYES also told me at the time that they were in the process of producing a new "Men of LSU" but it never happened.

Great video. Sure captured a lot of colorful characters during that era.
