I loved this guy.

I never missed his "The Tomorrow Show." When it went off the air I was crushed.

“Fire up a colortini, sit back, relax, and watch the pictures,

Snyder

Cocktail hour at our house tonight will include a toast to Tom. He was transparent,
sometimes transcendent in his meandering interview techniques, but he was also
quite simply one of the best at what he did, which was to engage the audience and make it impossible not to watch and listen to what he had to say.

There was only one Johnny Carson, only one Bob Hope, and likewise, there was only one Tom Snyder.
