Fun Letter From Lloyd Dobyns
Last update: 3-Nov-1995 (Overnight link)

When Lloyd Dobyns's short-lived news magazine Monitor changed its theme music, I wrote him a letter asking why they did that, figuring I might get a funny answer. I did.

Dobyns was also the initial co-anchor, with Linda Ellerbee, of the much-missed NBC News Overnight and, earlier, Weekend. Monitor later changed its name to First Camera; it was canceled after 22 shows. (By the way, if I recall correctly, the original Monitor theme music was a very good performance of Liszt's Piano Concerto No. 2 by Sviatoslav Richter.)
