I hosted Stranger Songs today on CKCU and the show is available to stream now, or any old time, by clicking "Listen Now" on the playlist link.
The theme is "Songs of Leonard Cohen – The Middle Years" and the show was inspired by the book, "Leonard Cohen Untold Stories: From This Broken Hill" by Michael Posner, the second of what will be three volumes of Leonard Cohen’s untold stories. "From This Broken Hill" covers Leonard Cohen’s life from the early-1970s until the late-1980s and the songs of Leonard Cohen on this show were written during that period.
You'll hear songs performed by Leonard Cohen; Colleen Rennison; Holly Near; Tower of Song; Judy Collins; Rufus Wainwright & Amsterdam Sinfonietta; Perla Batalla; Emmylou Harris; The Klezmer Conservatory Band; The Once; Jennifer Warnes; SONiA disappear fear; Jamie O'Reilly & Michael Smith; Mad Pudding; Tom Russell; and Canadian Brass.
