LOVE DARLENE LOVE
Les and I will certainly miss David Letterman's Christmas show as we never missed it for twenty-six years. With Paul Shaffer doing his imitation of Cher singing O Holy Night, the football toss at the pizza-topped Christmas tree preceded by what Letterman considered the funniest story he'd ever heard: Jay Thomas relating his encounter with Clayton Moore who portrayed The Lone Ranger.
The show would be culminated by Darlene Love's Christmas (Baby, Please Come Home). Last year, at the end of the show, I wistfully said, "She'll probably not perform it again." But Darlene was on The View and it was announced that she was going to perform It's A Marshmallow World At Christmas, but instead she performed her NOW classic rendition!
