I'm Humbled.

Like many growing up in New Orleans in the 70's, I spent many hours listening to 'Captain Humble' on WRNO (back then "The Rock of New Orleans"). It was his studio interview with an obscure British group then touring the US (in a used van) called 'The Police,' that introduced me to New Wave/Alternative music.

So when I read this article I was saddened to hear that the good Captain has, like so many after Katrina, fallen on hard times. But I'm glad to see he still has friends. There are a lot more of us out there than you think, Captain.

Hattip: Dead Pelican.
