Don Pardo, 1918 – 2014. Rest in Peace

To me, Don Pardo was always that voice on Zappa in New York, blending perfectly into the weird mix of pop, genius, misogyny, and head-desk humour that make us this classic album.  It was only after the internet and youtube that I learned who Don was, and discovered gems like the performance above, from Saturday Night Live.
