Ah, Tom Snyder. What a useless blow-hard.
Not to white knight Tom Snyder or anything, but at least he didn't try to fake any hipness with these guys and PIL and Wendy O. Williams and the Plasmatics. He was what he was: A middle aged guy out of his cultural element.
I'm old enough to remember the Tomorrow Show and he was always giving awesome bands national exposure they couldn't get elsewhere. Who else was? Carson? Don Kirshner? The Midnight Special? Maybe SNL sometimes, I guess.
When he couldn't get a guest, they used to hire hookers to come in and talk about their lives. Plus, Snyder got all up in Charlie Manson's grill - give the man his due.
Okay, I'm totally gay for Tom Snyder. I'm okay with that.
Not to white knight SNL musical guests circa 1981 or anything, but...
2. Mink DeVille
3. Captain Beefheart and His Magic Band

But Busby Berkeley is talking out of his bum, as usual.
Ha ha ha, fuckin' hipsters!
