Mike Hsu Talks To Paul Shaffer About His New Show On AXS TV

Friday, September 13th

After a long and astounding musical career what has Paul Shaffer not done yet?  He was most famously David Letterman's band leader for over 3 decades.  Has was part of the original Saturday Night Live Band that was also the Blues Brothers' backing band.  He has been the musical director for all of the Rock N Roll Hall Of Fame live performances, the 1996 Olympics, as well as many other huge, multi artist events.  He's played on recordings for BB King, Robert Plant, Grand Funk Railroad, George Clinton, Warren Zevon, just to name a few.  But he has never done a television interview show.  He can now cross that off his list with the premier of "Paul Shaffer Plus One" on AXS TV this Sunday(9/15/19) at 8pm.  We talk about the show's stellar line up, what it takes to wrangle multiple musicians and egos, and if Bill Murray will ever reprise his lounge singer role from SNL on the new show.
