Tom Snyder

"Tom Snyder, who pioneered the late-late network TV talk show with a personal yet abrasive style and his robust, trademark laugh, has died from complications associated with leukemia. He was 71."

I liked watching Tom Snyder, he was down-to-earth, loved to laugh, and was not a pushover. My favorite interviews were with Robert Blake. He was on the show a lot although I was unable to find any at YouTube. Robert Blake was very candid with Tom about the many things that went on in his life, I think because they were friends.

Here's a Tom Snyder "greatest hits" montage:

He's had his share of difficult guests, here's Johnny "Rotten" Lydon:

Rest in peace, Tom.
