ENVISION NETWORKS' "PAUL SHAFFER'S DAY IN ROCK" reached the milestone of its 2,500th episode on JUNE 14th.
SHAFFER, the bandleader on CBS' "THE LATE SHOW WITH DAVID LETTERMAN," said in a recent article that the radio feature is "what I love. I have a huge compendium of fun facts and comic rock trivia. Everything we talk about is accurate, but we present it with a comic twist. Sort of like what JON STEWART does with the news [on 'THE DAILY SHOW'], we do with rock [history.]” He also said that after LETTERMAN retires in 2015, “I’m going to try to find something which is as much fun as this has been, but it is not going to be easy because it really has been the dream job for me. Getting to play every day, have my own band, do comedy, go up against the quickest, smartest guy in the business – it’s not going to be easy, but I’m still going to play the piano. I’ll be looking for more ways to do that.”
