Upon Conan's Return, a Chance to Revisit Bobbie Wygant's Chats With Leno, Letterman

Bobbie Wygant Interviews David Letterman from on Vimeo.

Late yesterday, Erik Clapp, the fellow slowly but surely archiving all of Bobbie Wygant's chits and chats for KXAS-Channel 5, sent word that he'd just posted to his website golden-oldies featuring a cigar-smoking David Letterman and Jay Leno. Wrote Clapp, "Since it's Conan week and all, thought you might like these!" Much obliged. The Leno interview, from his Tonight Show guest-hosting days in '87, follows. In case you forgot all about Collision Course.
