See ya, Dave!

Tonight is David Letterman’s last show on the air.

I will miss him.

I started with Johnny Carson in 1976, when I had to stay up late and work on things for my genetics class.I morphed into Dave when he followed Johnny and even had tickets to his 15th Anniversary show in New York. I went up by train and had a blast.Afterward, I’d catch him when he went to CBS.

Sure, there are pretenders to the throne,such as Carson Daly and Jimmy Fallon among others.They have their own spin on things, but David Letterman was truly unique.I always enjoyed his humor, his guests, Paul Shaffer,in fact the whole show rocked, in my humble opinion.

I know there are folks, such as my younger nephews, who really missed Dave’s time on television and didn’t appreciate his humor.For me, though, it’s another block of my life falling by the wayside.I will remember him and the show and smile.

Godspeed, Dave!

  1. I’m definitely going to miss Dave, too. I wrote about him on my blog tonight as well.

    I used to record Late Night With David Letterman and then watch it every day when I got home from school. He was the best, and now I write for a late night TV show and he totally inspired me to do so. Going to miss him!
