It is a challenge to pay homage to a great poet like Leonard Cohen, in a 52 minutes radio program. Perhaps some may be disappointed for not having included a favorite. More so because so many artists have used his material, and many of his songs. After some consideration the decision was made to just focus on Leonard Cohen as a performer as well as writer and composers, and not the interpretations of his music by others. With one exception, the inclusion of “Blue Alert” a song composed by Leonard but interpreted by Ajani Thomas, when you listen to it you will understand and forgive me.
