The news anchors at KBAK in Bakersfield, CA were super pumped up for a satellite interview with 84-year-old Harry Belafonte Friday morning ... but when they cut to the "Day-O" singer, he was fast asleep.

After they cut away from the singer, one of the anchors quipped, "Daylight hasn't come, man."

No .... no it had not.

If sense were common everyone would have it.    

"Meditating" or medicating? Seriously though he IS 84. Then again Ernest Borgnine is in his 90s & puts the twenty-something slacktards to shame.

Maybe ole Harry just had a late partying night & it caught up with him.
