Forward into the past with David Letterman

I thought of this after reading today that Letterman announced his upcoming retirement. I can remember watching Dave when I was in junior high school. The "Clover Power" show was the local 4-H program that was broadcast on Sunday mornings and he treated the farm kids he interviewed just like he treats the celebrities now... the kids never knew what hit them. :lol: He also did "news" reports on the local :quotes: underground :quotes: FM station in the early '70's:

My favorite "Dave-ism" is the time that, during a weather broadcast on WLWI (now WTHR), he mentioned that one of his weather spotters had reported "hail the size of canned hams." :rofl:

Without really researching: When is he leaving and who is replacing him? I watched him in the 90's and early 2000's then I started to watch Jay Leno.

Great early footage.

I certainly hope Tina fey or Ellen do not take over his place in late night, I do not think either of them are funny enough to fill his role.

After watching the great job that Ellen did at this year's Academy Awards, I think that she would do well but I doubt that she would want to give up her daytime job (literally :lol: ).
