Friday night marks the last holiday show for David Letterman. As fans know every year tradition is king with one particular song, Darlene Love singing “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home),” taking center stage.
“My friend David Letterman, whom you may have heard announced that he was retiring in about a year, is just taking advantage of this last year to do quirky things that he always wanted to see on the show and he mentioned ”MacArthur Park’ can we do something with that?’ From there it just sort of mushroomed,” Paul said.
Less than a day after David Letterman announced his retirement, the mayor of Los Angeles declared that he wants the “Late Show” to move out of New York altogether.
The man who has been synonymous with late nights on CBS for more than two decades will soon be giving up his prestigious post.
Paul Shaffer has been David Letterman’s band leader for more than three decades, and now he’s getting involved in a cause to help people adopt pets. Paul and his daughter Victoria Shaffer taped a PSA for the Shelter Pet Project.
