It was nearly 20 years ago today (August 30, 1993, to be exact) that David Letterman came out to play — on CBS. After a much-documented behind-the-scenes battle, Jay Leno had assumed The Tonight Show reigns and Letterman decided it was time to split from NBC, his longtime home.

On Thursday, August 29, one of Letterman’s best and most frequent guests, Wilmette’s own Bill Murray, stops by to help the host celebrate two decades of wacky and poignant moments on CBS.

Here, just a handful of Murray’s past appearances on Letterman’s programs.
