I am rerunning these previous posts in tribute to the end of the David Letterman show. This week Dave and Paul Shaffer will wrap up their run of late night television having provided us with some incredible bands to watch.   It is easy to tell that both Dave and Paul are very passionate about music.   This is really what sets them apart from others in the late night arena.  In recent weeks Dave has had previous musical guests on that may have got their start on the show or had a particularly wonderful performance that helped them gain mass attention.  Dave has also provided heartfelt stories about songs and how much they have meant to him.  As a music blogger you could always count on a good live performance from the night before.

Here we will look back at the TOP 10 Best Live Performances on David Letterman’s late night shows.   Thanks Dave, you will be missed.

I've had crab cakes with Warren Zevon, sat backstage and interviewed Sting, had Melissa Etheridge sing to me from the front row and I loved every minute of it. That passion for music still burns strong in me and I love to talk music and be turned on to music. Sharing new music with people is what got me interested in radio in the first place. It is wonderful to be able to talk music with you. "Go ahead you're on the air..." Read more: http://www.chicagonow.com/blogs/spool-going-round/about-spool-going-round.html#ixzz1Bfx7V0ug
