The Life of LC on RTE 1

Post by jdhayes » Sun Apr 26, 2009 11:14 am

There will be a piece on LC on today's News at One on Irish Radio RTE1 between 1 and 2 pm. I would say that it will be broadcast towards the end of the news programme. The announcement of the contents of the programme (The Life of Leonard Cohen) mentioned his ability to achieve sell-out concerts at his age.

What an acheivement for our Leonard to get 7 and half minutes coverage on Ireland's national radio station's main Sunday news programme. Listen in http://www.rte.ie/news/2009/0426/thiswe ... 6,null,209

Roll on July.

Thanks for posting the link and the alert. Would have missed it otherwise. Now I'm wondering about the interview clips with Leonard Cohen. Anyone any ideas on who was interviewing or when? Maybe RTE will play in the run up to the concerts? Anyone got any ideas on it?

Thanks again.

Thanks for alerting us to this interview jdhayes and sheila for providing the link.

I can't believe that LC said, "I'm not defeated by the lack of impact I that I have in the world or the lack of importance or significance that my work might have."! He only need come to this forum, read some of these postings to see how important and significant his work is in the lives of individuals!

Best regards,
Mary

Hi burningviolin
They said after the item that the interviews were from the archives in RTE. The interviewer was Ken Stuart, who was a music journalist here way back when!! :D . My guess is the interview was done around the time of his 1988 tour, or even earlier. And that probably answers YOUR question Mary, ie the forum wasn't around then.!!He mightn't say that now. :D

Erm...........Spotlight magazine................nope, never heard of it. Was probably more interested in the Beano when that was circulating. Do tell what I missed out on while I was busy with the bash street kids!! :D :D

Ya missed out on all sorts of fascinating stuff.............eg what size shoes Brendan Bowyer wore, or where Dickie Rock got his fake tan.
Now wasn't that better than reading about Desperate Dan and his meat cow pies. :D
