TV/MUSIC: Mark Your Calendars

Mark your calendars and set the tivos & vcrs for this coming Friday, December 23rd, as the magnificent Darlene Love returns to the Late Show With David Letterman, to recreate the Phil Spector "Wall Of Sound" with Paul Shaffer and an augmented CBS Orchestra. Her annual delivery of "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)" is one of the most amazing musical performances you will see on television in any given year. And what's really amazing is that each new performance of the the song by Love, Shaffer, & company usually tops the performance from the year before. They really pull out all the stops, and it's always quite a sentimentally moving musical spectacle.

Her performance on this past SNL puts her in a category far too sublime and holy for anything as pedestrian and compromised as the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame !!

-Happy talk
