Eight Hundred Episodes! A Look Back & A Glance Forward…

WHO’S the ROSS? late-night talk show celebrated their landmark 800th episode with so many big guests, archival clips, games, gags, and memories that we had to make it a two-night event!

August 9 & 10 our recipe for 800 featured 2/3 of Hip-Hop Greats DIGABLE PLANETS, 2/5 Portland Indie Rockers THE DECEMBERISTS, 1/4 THE PHARCYDE, 3/3 WTR’s History of BANDLEADERS, and 200% ROSS!

Of course this was all under the unique circumstances of a pandemic which had quarantined the show at Mom’s House for the past 4 months, w/ Mama Ross frequently featured as co-host (who made a special appearance, live via satellite from her tropical bday vacation, on Part 1). In some ways, broadcasting live from the family living room for this special event was perfectly fitting, because in the decade-plus WTR has been entertaining audiences, change has been a constant. Whether it was the venue, city, host’s character, personnel, guests, and now a global pandemic, the program has continued to adapt, often at its best when a challenge was present.

Please enjoy the full episodes from our two-night special, plus a few quick clips featuring our special guests, to whet your appetite.

Thank you for enjoying 800 show with us, and here’s to 800 more!!
