EDIT
Show #0062
AIRED:

Instead of giving his usual nightly monologue, Dave introduces "The Happy Clown" and asks Hal Gurnee to speak. From the control room are the melancholy sounds of "Ho ho ho; ha ha ha." Later in the show, Wayne Cochran performs "Goin' Back to Miami" with the band and sits down for two segments.

      • In 1983, Keyboard magazine asked Paul Shaffer about Wayne Cochran. His response:


         


        "A lot of times what we do has the characteristics of a jam, because we might not have any time to rehearse. On our show everything seems to take precedence over the musical number—sometimes. There was one case where Wayne Cochran got off a plane, and when he got to the studio, they said, 'Oh, you thought you were going to be on tomorrow? No, you're on today!' I mean, it was late, about five minutes before the taped rolled. We went on the air and played 'Goin' Back to Miami' with him without ever having run it down. The studio audience watched us as we talked it through: 'This is the bass line, then we'll go to a chorus.' We had sort of a theoretical format in mind. When we went on, we came close to it." (laughs)
