RIP (Part II)

He was easy to make fun of, and Dan Akroyd did it best, but Tom Snyder was a great interviewer. In his own way, he was an innovator, perfecting talk television with an eclectic variety of guests including Charles Manson, John Lennon and Ayn Rand.
About the only personal note I can add is that Snyder was great entertainment when pulling a midterm all nighter.

    Tom was one of my favorite TV show hosts ever. I got to know his craft as a teenager watching him after David Letterman when Letterman jumped over to CBS.

    Bill Walsh is a huge loss, too, as his style of playing inspired the Eagles’ (my favorite team) current style of play.

    Sad week for legends.
