Attention Australian members - tomorrow (11th June, 2016) on SBS1 @ 8:35pm, RocKwiz Salutes The Legends.
"RocKwiz pays homage to the best music Canada has to offer, from Joni Mitchell to The Band and Leonard Cohen".
Sorry for the short notice.

Also I saw a "cover" of Hallelujah on the American TV show NCIS, with a couple of verses sung by one of the characters. Season 13; Episode 18. Didn't know where to post that info. Maybe someone already has.

Hi Alan,

I really enjoyed that RocKwiz, though I usually do anyway. ;-)

Even though there were no apparent big LC fans amongst the four panelist competitors selected, I think the two musicians may have been more so inclined and there was a fair bit of focus on Leonard throughout the show anyway. I also thought that rendition of 'First We Take Manhattan' was as good as any you could wish to see (apart from Leonard's own). :D

It was also a nice touch that Julia finished with the "There's a crack in everything..." quote. 8)

Cheers,
Andrew :)
