Leonard Cohen Day on CBC 2!!!

Postby Cate » Tue Jan 31, 2012 4:54 pm

So far I've heard 2 Leonard tunes and a clip from an interview with Adrian Clarkson in which he states that he'd be willing to rule a small county :) (she's a beautiful woman, I think he may have been trying to impress her - she went on to become our governor general).


If you are working and listening to the radio anyways the pacific time zone will be playing the morning show for another couple of hours http://www.cbc.ca/radio2/programs.html

I think they played the whole album throughout the day, plus lots more archived interview clips! :D

On Sunday a documentary called Various Positions is being broadcast on CBC Radio's Inside the Music. I'm not sure if this is a new documentary but the first part is streaming now.

Thank you Mollydog (Mary) for letting us know about this program on CBC 2. It was very informative and great to hear Leonard reciting some of his earlier poems. I will have to listen to the second part when it is available.

Sorry Cate I unfortunately missed that this was your initial post. Thank you for it. :D :oops:

Thanks Cate and Mary,

Unfortunately wasn't able to listen to the first one but I could hear Various Positions: Magic is alive.
Some excerpts from it I had hear some I hadn't. A good listen anyway. Waiting for part 2. :)

I have just finished listening to part 2 of this recording. It was so very enjoyable, the hour went by too quickly!
I liked it better than part 1. Some nostalgic moments for me as well maybe influencing that statement.
Also I think the choice of subject matter and how it was presented was excellent!

It would be nice to have a copy of both of these recordings.

I've just listened to Part 2 ... missed Part 1.

It would indeed be good to have a copy of these recordings ... but is it possible?
