Melbourne 1980 - The Don Lane Show

Post by B4real » Sat Apr 10, 2021 5:14 am

This is a new clip to me but maybe those living in Melbourne (and probably other places) saw it on TV at the time when Leonard was touring here in Australia in 1980. I know at least three Aussies who were at the concerts ;-)

I love the casualness of the interview and Leonard's playful words -

My pleasure, Hartmut,
I liked Leonard's response to Don's reference to him being in Australia -
...It's a long way in miles but it feels like home... I'm really happy to be here...
In fact, I like all of the interview!
