Growing up in Columbus GA. I had the opportunity to interview Chet Atkins, Eddy Arnold, and Boots Randolph when they played at the Columbus Auditorium when I worked for the radio station that sponsored their appearance. All were gentlemen, but Chet was the "RingMaster" and ran the show. He had good stories to tell of his adventures and others, but no trash. I am glad to remember these Gentlemen and Chet who respected the times that I and others grew up in during the middle 1960's.
