    Loved Snyder's talk show. Dan Aykroyd did an excellent impression of him.

    Dan Aykroyd's impression was a good one, too. ::)

    Sirs, Madames,

    I was a huge TS fan. Some legendary interviews back with Tomorrow. Johnny Rotten. Manson. Alfred Hitchcock near the end. I remember him having a sex expert on who was advocating masturbation and TS said: "I have to hand it to you ..." and then collapsed in laughter for two minutes. He was a good friend of--of all people--David Brenner. It was weird ... i could give a shit about David Brenner until TS said he was a friend and the show they did together was great. (Brenner, friend of all it seems, said he had no hard feelings about anybody in Hollywood ... except Jack Lord and then went vitriolic for three minutes about what an ass he was.) Even the show on CBS was way better than the average fare.

    RIP, etc

    I have never heard a good word said about Mr. Jack Lord.

    RIP both.

    Tom Snyder's dead?

    Okay. Fair enough. I'll buy that.

    A very fond farewell, sir.

    A great interviewer. I was too young for The Tomorrow Show, but liked his version of The Late, Late Show. Had to love that laugh and how he could just lose it. I also remember the time he showed up late and they just showed his empty chair for a while. How many shows would do that?

    How many different colors did they say was in Snyder's hair?

    Lumping Bergman and Snyder in the same RIP is just weird on its face. Both men would probably have liked that.

    RIP to both.

    It was through a Tom Snyder interview that the world learned of Elvis Costello's love of Rogers & Hart and other American Songbook classic writers.

    There was a DVD set out a while back that featured Syder's interviews with rock stars -- Costello, Iggy Pop, Rotten, etc.
