David Letterman is now well into his much deserved retirement but after decades on TV, there’s so much material to reflect upon. One of the best things he put on the air was his viewer mail segment. Back when there was no Twitter nor e-mail, the only way for the public to contact his show was through old fashioned postal mail. Every week he’d answer a few letters from his fans and by gosh, if he answered your letter, that was like winning the lottery. I never got the courage to write Dave a letter but the few times that someone from Vancouver got a letter read on air I was so proud.

In the above special viewer mail segment, Dave went a step further than usual and decided to answer a letter in person. Watch the whole video for a special treat.
