Good Night, Larry "Bud" Melman

The man behind one of David Letterman's old semi-regular comic routines back when he was on NBC, Larry "Bud" Melman, has died.

Although the man made the jump over to CBS when Letterman did, "Melman's" character name was changed to "Calvert DeForrest" to avoid a lawsuit by NBC. He didn't appear a lot, however, once Letterman had the new show. I've missed him.

Thank you and good night, Mr. "Melman", wherever you are.
