Hey. It’s Me.
Barbara Gaines worked with television personality David Letterman for more than 30 years. She was working with Dave prior to his “late night” days. The first TV show Letterman hosted was The David Letterman Show, but she called it “the morning show,” and it aired 5 days a week in the morning for a few months in 1980.
“Barbara Gaines” was a name I saw and heard repeatedly over the years as a devoted “Late Show” viewer. I’m very glad to now know the woman herself. And I want to give special thanks to our very special surprise guest, Simon, who added incredible insight and honesty. Happy listening!
