Tom Snyder either had the greatest taste in music or his show's talent booker did. He has the greatest bands on his old talk show, "Tomorrow with Tom Snyder." The Clash, PiL, The Jam, Iggy Pop, The Ramones, Elvis Costello, and Patti Smith all made appearances on his show.
The reason why Snyder was so incredible was because he treated punks like the guys in The Clash and The Ramones with the same sort of respect he used to give his other "high brow" guests like Ayn Rand, Tom Wolfe, and John Lennon. Here's his interview segment with the guys from The Clash.
