“Weird Al” Yankovic’s First National Television Appearance


On April 21, 1981 Alfred Matthew Yankovic’s made his first national television performance on The Tomorrow Show with Tom Snyder. Weird Al was only 22 when he performed his Queen parody of “Another One Bites the Dust”, the aptly named “Another One Rides the Bus”. Al is just brimming with energy and zaniness in this “unplugged” performance. It is a great bit of TV history and a must see for “Weird Al” fans.
