    Tom Davis
    Thanks for playing this this week. I had no idea Tom Davis had died even though I read the Chicago Tribune daily. How is it that when some guy who does infomercials dies it's big news but when a great creative mind from the '70s/'80s dies it doesn't even make the paper?Most of the skits mentioned in the interview here are on Youtube and well worth watching. I also found a video of Franken and Davis playing Jagger and Richards to perfection. Great stuff. Here's hoping more of this interview is on the way.
