Tom Snyder, 1936-2007

If you were a punk-starved teen in the early 80’s, The Tomorrow Show with Tom Snyder, who passed away Sunday from leukemia, was one of the places you could tune in to catch your heroes. Snyder brought us the first TV appearances of “Weird Al” Yankovic, The Plasmatics and U2, among others. Here is one of The Clash’s first performances on Snyder’s show, with “The Magnificent Seven.” – Craig Hlavaty
