Sid Noel, alias Morgus the Magnificent, has passed

Post by Fan Since '54 »

Most of you here more than likely do not remember him. He became a late Saturday night staple in New Orleans "doing so called experiments", (not real ones) that revolved around the supposedly scary movies. In fact I saw the first episode of the show/movie. RIP Sid.

I suspect most of us do remember him.

RIP.

Yup, he was right up there with Dr. Dimento on the local New Orleans radio in the 70s.

He had a weather show that seemed to be more accurate than any of the "real" ones, including Nash Roberts.

I wouldn't assume people on here don't know. I'd wager a higher percentage of people on here know than those living in Uptown, Quarter, Marigny, Bywater---all places where almost no one has been in New Orleans more than a decade (if even that long)
