Song of the Day – “Locomotion/One Fine Day” – Carole King

You know, we lost a lot when David Letterman retired last week. Not only did we lose his goofy sense of humor – we lost a champion of all kinds of music.

You’ve got to believe that in over 6000 shows, he easily hosted over a thousand musical acts. Most of them were backed on the show by the World’s Most Dangerous Band/the CBS Orchestra, with Paul Shaffer and Will Lee appearing for all 33 years. I want to show you a few of these musical acts strutting their stuff for Dave over the next week.

In this video from 1982, Hiram Bullock (later replaced by Sid McGinnis) was still on guitar, and Steve Jordan (later, Anton Figg) was on drums to help Carole King with a couple of songs she wrote before becoming a performer.
