The Godfather of Soul..... James Brown
Date: November 24, 2007 05:15AM
One evening, while working on D Concourse, where the commuter flights were, as we were showing passengers where to board our little Jetstream J31s, I was working the Agusta Ga AGS flt. All of a sudden, one of the girls called out...."Here comes James Brown! - I FEEL GOOD,,, nanananananana." Sure enough, he was not far behind her. We were all around him, Piedmont agents, both ramp and customer service, getting autographs. His wife was with him and they were both dressed to the hilt in class. I will never forget that FIRM handshake! And I don't know what happened to that ticket jacket he signed for me. Maybe someday it will show up.
I often tell people..... "Shake the hand of the man, who shook the hand, of James Brown!" And Billy Graham.... and..... (the list goes on).
Almost sounds like the life of Forrest Gump :)
