Stranger Songs
Tuesday February 9th, 2021 with Mike Regenstreif
Songs and poems of Leonard Cohen -- The Early Years

Today’s show was inspired by the book, “Leonard Cohen Untold Stories: The Early Years” by Michael Posner, the first of what will be three volumes of Leonard Cohen’s "Untold Stories." "The Early Years" covers Leonard Cohen’s life from childhood until 1970 and the songs and poems of Leonard Cohen on this show were all written during that period. Visit the Folk Roots/Folk Branches blog to read Mike Regenstreif's review of “Leonard Cohen Untold Stories: The Early Years.” https://frfb.blogspot.com/2020/12/leonard-cohen-untold-stories-early-years.html

Loving the show Mike. I'm so happy to see you doing a show every week again. I missed hearing you every week after you left Montreal.

Congratulations on the new show, Mike! I started listening to you on CKUT in ca. 2000, and was happy to rediscover your Saturday morning show last summer, since you're my favorite curator of the roughly 10 DJs I follow. I've been listening to the Saturday shows in order from 1/1/17, and I've now reached mid-2018. One gem after another. :-)
