David Letterman

The Game Changer is exiting the stage tonight, the greatest comedy talk show host of all time and the last true broadcaster television will likely ever know. I haven’t watched his show much in the past 20 years but his NBC show probably did more to shape my sense of humor and outlook on the world than anything else. My hero, David Letterman.

Ok, back on vacation.

Tom and Vance

Tuesday is about to become Wednesday for the last time tonight in Newbridge, New Jersey as broadcasting great (and a man that we admire), Tom Scharpling brings the glorious 13-year, 562 episode run of The Best Show on WFMU in for a landing. If you aren’t a listener, you’ve been missing out (and some of my posts over the past few days may have left you scratching your head). Tonight is your last chance to listen live. Do so on WFMU, East Orange; WMFU, Mount Hope; WNYX, Montgomery; worldwide on the worldwide web at and in Rockland County at 91.9 FM.
