This rare interview of Letterman by Charlie Rose is a treat.
When I was in school I let my sister have my bedroom upstairs so I could sleep in the basement on, well, I guess you'd call it a cot. I told my parents it was because it was nice and cool down there in the summer, but I stayed there through the winter and for years until I left for college (and for good).
The real reason was that there was a television down there that connected to the spine of the antennae my dad had put on the roof. Great reception by Iron Range standards, and you could get FM and AM radio there, too. Johnny Carson, Letterman, Conan O'Brien, then Jack Horkheimer over on PBS, until all hours. I shouldn't have been allowed to do that, but I'm glad I did.
