Envision Networks® Day in Rock host talks collaboration with Letterman

(February 2018) – Paul Shaffer, host of Envision Networks®’ Paul Shaffer’s Day in Rock, has been friends with late night host David Letterman for quite some time and was the longtime bandleader for his late night show. Recently, Letterman has stepped off the late night stage and onto Netflix and Shaffer is along for the ride.

Billboard talked to Paul Shaffer about his experience writing the theme music for Letterman’s new show, My Next Guest Needs No Introduction.

“I thought he needs drums, pizzazz to bring him on. But the producers and director took a look and said, ‘we want to just focus on the keyboards. We want it to feel like it’s Dave’s old friend Paul playing.’ So they pulled the drums out and just went with piano and organ. I couldn’t be happier–it’s me!” said Shaffer.
