When Huell Howser Met Luciano Pavarotti
Opera is not necessarily easy entertainment for most Americans. However, famed tenor Luciano Pavarotti did much in his lifetime to help us T-shirt-wearing, sitcom-watching types not only understand the art form but also get excited about it. It's fitting, then, that he once sat down for an interview with Huell Howser, who also tried his hardest to get people to stop and appreciate something they may have overlooked before.
This 1981 interview for the Cable News Network features Huell in his New York days and proves that Anderson Cooper was not the only CNN anchor to look dapper behind the news desk.

Roughly 90 years later, the legacy of San Luis Obispo's Motel Inn still stands, along with part of the original building.
Huell investigates a onetime tradition, the Yosemite Firefall, and experiences the natural version of the "Firefall" at Horsetail Fall. Huell calls it "one of the most magnificent sights you'll ever see in your life."
