This Feb. 7, 2006 interview offers an impressive range and depth of material (albeit organized in a somewhat random manner).
From CBC description:
Leonard Cohen has reasons to celebrate. Five of his songs are being inducted into the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame. As heard in this in-depth radio interview, the usually reserved artist reflects back on his life. He talks openly about his days at a Buddhist monastery, his love of wine, his failure at love and what this latest honour means for the 71-year-old artist.
The five songs by Leonard Cohen inducted into the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2006 were
- Ain’t No Cure For Love
- Bird on the Wire
- Everybody Knows (co-written with Sharon Robinson)
