Bobbie Wygant Interviews David Letterman from Atombomb.tv 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.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
