Interview re: Hall of Fame Inductee Angelo Roppolo – January 30, 2013

On February 9, 2013 The Louisiana Political Museum hosted its 21st Annual Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony and Banquet in Winnfield, Louisiana. Angelo Roppolo was formally inducted and officially joined the many Hall of Fame members from 1993 to the present, including the Longs (Earl, Huey, Russell), James Carville, Murphy “Mike” Foster, Joe D. Waggoner, Foster Campbell, Chief Justice Kitty Kimball and over a hundred other honorees. A few days before this ceremony, January 30, 2013, Tom Pace devoted 30 minutes of his Talk of the Town radio broadcast (5:00-6:00 p.m.; 90.7 FM) to an interview about the iconic Angelo Roppolo and his legacy. Significantly, the broadcast includes an 8 minute interview which Tom conducted with Angelo in 2012, before his illness. The broadcast ultimately ends with a Luther Vandross song “Always and Forever”. Enjoy!
