Remembrance Of Videos Past #55: Paul Shaffer, “When the Radio is On” (Live Version)

Paul Shaffer was David Letterman’s obedient foil, laughing at his jokes and leading his band through runs of “Wild Thing” and “Born to be Wild.”

One episode, however, the writer of “It’s Raining Men” took the reigns and debuted one of his own compositions: a doo-wop revival song with Dion, Fresh Prince, Carol Kane and other assorted guests.

Wasn’t enthralled with this song, but it never left my head. Every now and then I remember the melody.

Catch the Fresh Prince at his whitest.
