Darlene Love’s farewell appearance on Letterman tonight

We all have our Christmas traditions, and Darlene Love’s annual appearance on David Letterman is one of mine.

First of all, it’s live music, which I almost always prefer to the recorded variety. Something about the raw energy of live performance thrills me, and Darlene Love is a great live performer. David Letterman may or may not be your cup of tea, but you can’t knock his taste in music. I love Christmas, and I love just about everything ever written or produced by Phil Spector.

The Letterman team always finds some way to make this annual appearance special (watch for the sax solo), and since this is the last time, I can’t wait to see how they top themselves.
