Leonard Cohen Radio Show- April 11 th

Post by Bob R » Sun Apr 05, 2009 5:48 pm

Hi all--
I host a weekly radio show here in Maine, and next Saturday night, April 11th, my entire three hour program will feature Leonard ! Three full hours of nothing but Leonard Cohen-- it took a little arm-twisting to get the management to go along with it ( "Leonard who...?" was the response ) but it should be a great time.

Please join me if you can-- I'll be playing the songs you know & love, some obscure pieces you may not be familiar with, some you may not have ever heard ( thanks Davido !), some rare live performances, spoken word pieces and more. I would really love all Leonard fans to tune in if you can--

The show is called "Mystery Train" and broadcasts out of Standish Maine USA on WJZF-FM 97.1 and worldwide via the internet at http://www.wjzf.org

Saturday night,April 11th, live 9:00pm-Midnight EST..... with rebroadcasts Monday night April 13th 9:00pm-Midnight EST & Wednesday morning April 15th Midnight-3:00am EST

This show is a celebration of Leonards new tour and also a celebration of the man, his music and his poetry. It is for all fans to enjoy ! I would love it if you could join me.

If you have any requests for particular songs, please email me at mysterytrainradio@yahoo.com-- if I have it, or can get it, I'll be more than happy to oblige

The economy sucks right now, and the news is consistantly bad--things are a downer. Lets forget our troubles for awhile and celebrate Leonard's work ! Spring is here !

Thanks! Bob

Sounds wonderful, Bob! I'll definitely try to tune in.

A few verses of the spoken word version of Democracy would be great.

Thanks Bob! :D

Sounds like a great show and we plan to listen on Saturday. Just as Leonard gives his band members an opportunity to shine in solos, we would also love to hear a solo or two by those who have worked closely with him, especially Sharon Robinson.

Looking forward to your show. . .

Bob,

Thanks for your email to let me know that indeed the rebroadcasts will also be on the internet!
I will be listening!

Can't imagine the effort it took on your part to convince your management (Leonard who?) so I truly appreciate what you accomplished :D :!:

Grateful regards,
Mary
