Tom Snyder Interviews the Original Saturday Night Live Cast (1975)

Saturday Night live has had some good years and some bad years, some casts have been better than others and the show has produced dozens of stars but it has never been as good as it was in the beginning. In addition to the regular cast, the show had regular guest appearances by people like Andy Kauffman, Jim Henson's Muppets (prior to the Muppet Movie/Show) and others.

Here, via Open Culture, is Tom Snyder, just prior to the debut of Saturday Night (later Saturday Night Live) interviewing show creator Lorne Michaels and the original cast: Chevy Chase (who left a year later and was replaced by the one and only Bill Murray), John Belushi, Gilda Radner, Dan Aykroyd, Jane Curtain, Garrett Morris and Loraine Newman.
