Thanks for this playlist thing. It is great for those of us listening going wow who is that again. Dina asked who is that during the first song and I responded it's Adam's dad. She thought me a fool because musically Adam is Leonard's son and not vice versa

Hi, I just caught the last part of the broadcast which mentinned the Leonard Cohen contest. I'm not sure what, if anything I need to do to qualify but I will mention what the words and music of Leonard Cohen mean to me. The music of Mr. Cohen is often characterized as "dark" and "depressing" but this is a simplistic interpretation of his intelligent and insightful oeuvre. Mr. Cohen is a poet in the purest sense of the term: a guide, a sage, an interpreter of dreams and a teller of stories. His critical eye cracks through our hardened shells in order "to let the light shine in". He draws upon his Jewish, Canadian, and quebecois sensitivities in order to guide us through the joys and the hardships of life. How often have I recalled a Leonard Cohen song lyric when confronted with the irrational absurdities of life either at work, in politics, or in current events. I saw Leonard Cohen perform in Montreal two years ago (three?) and he was wonderful: he enterd the stage looking his advanced age, bent over and walking with the slowed gait of an elder. He sang for almost three hours (with an intermission) and after several encores he skipped off the stage, renewed, reinvigorated by the joy of music. The audience was filled with joy and good spirit. That is Leonard Cohen. Cheers Paul Dehler 1337 Morley Blvd. Ottawa K2C 1R1 613-274-0991

I saw Leonard live at Massey Hall in the mid 1980's. Still a great performer. So do we have to leave a phone # or email address to enter the contest?

Great contest, and a great way to see who else is listening out there...something I've always been curious about!

Query to Bruce White: if cinema is all digital, will it be possible to get "A Man Facing Southeast" back into circulation? Don't forget to play Bob Stark's tune using that as its conceptual frame. It's on "Beyond the Stars".

If I could grow old even half as gracefully as Leonard Cohen has, I'd be very lucky woman! I've never seen him perform live but have loved his music & poetry for many years. Thanks also for Laura Smith's 'Four-letter Word' today and Lynn Miles singing 'Surrender Dorothy.' Stirring stuff.

About a dozen years ago we were in Copenhagen and the only English CD we could find was one of Leonard's and we listened to it over and over and have been HUGE fans ever since. This is great to be able to all this in real time - thanks for the opportunity.
