Saturday Morning
Saturday January 7th, 2017 with Mike Regenstreif
Top 16 of 2016; A tribute to Leonard Cohen

The first part of the show features songs from each of my picks for the top 16 folk-rooted and folk-branched releases of 2016 -- see the list and links to full-length reviews at The second part of the show is a tribute to Leonard Cohen, 1934-2016. If you're listening on demand, the show actually starts six minutes and 50 seconds into the stream. There was a technical problem that I needed to figure out. (Thanks to Dave Aardvark for giving me the solution.)
