Louis "Satchmo" Armstrong and his band were on the KU campus for a concert on March 23, 1957. That same night, an hour to the east in Kansas City, Wilt Chamberlain and the Jayhawks were playing for the national title against the North Carolina Tar Heels. In an epic, triple-overtime game, KU lost to Carolina 54-53. A dejected KU team came back to Lawrence at 2:15 in the morning.
Who was there to greet them? Louis Armstrong. A young KU student had a tape recorder and he talked with the famous musician.
