    Many Happy Returns of the Day Lennie. 80 up, a new album, the Daily Telegraph saying very nice things about you and you will always be the top guy at KTCC.

    I bought the Songs of..at a small store in Ulm and thought it was certain to impress. It didn’t so I went back to Every Picture tells a Story which also failed me, but I understood it better. She didn’t take me down to her place by the river (the Danube) and I didn’t get to spend the night beside her (way too young)

    So good luck with China, and the Salvation Army and Rebecca DeMornay and all things Lennie. Happy Birthday Mr. Cohen.

      My Dear Hedley,
      I just an a TV ad for Lennie’s new album. They played a bit of one song. It did not tempt to buy it.

      That first Lennie album was a favorite because he sings all his songs I had to come to know from covers. That is the best he haas ever sounded.

      I agree-Happy Birthday, Mr. Cohen!

    Happy Birthday to Leonard Cohen! Sorry, I forgot to buy 80 candles.
    Like every young girl of my age with a guitar I could sing Suzanne by heart. Along with the standard repertoire Blowing in the wind, Streets of London and Lady in Black. Every boy with an electric guitar had to know Smoke on the Water. It’s long ago and now Leonard Cohen is 80. Our local public radio also celebrated Cohen with a retrospective this morning and music later this evening.

    Btw, his new album is still available for streaming today:

    I have to admit that it’s not too bad for a man who nearly can’t sing anymore.

    Huh, I wonder if I could do something in the style of Lennie
