Further proof that old people have finally discovered Facebook is unnecessary. A pair of pages on the social networking site — “Lafayette Memories” and “Acadiana Broadcast Legends” — is devoted to the Hub City’s civic, social and media histories, complete with vintage photos on the former page and, in the case of the latter, a YouTube video from Mardi Gras on Jefferson Street in 1985 in which a KADN “live” video feed helped keep viewers at home “abreast” of the frivolity. We’ll spare you the wanton bosom wagging. Instead, enjoy this KATC news open from 1983 for “Action 3 News.”
