Re: Richard Shindell

Hi Steve, haven't come across him before. I know that 'FBR' is a favourite of yours. Enjoyed both of these. Will keep an eye out for him in the future.

Hopefully catch up in Montreal. You too Janet!

Re: TOWER OF SONG: MEMORIAL TRIBUTE TO LEONARD COHEN, MONTREAL

"Looks like a great line up. A DVD would be fab for those who can't make the trip to Montreal." Quote from the official announcement "... Emmy nominated and Golden Globe winning director Jack Bender (Game of Thrones, Lost, The Sopranos, Mr. Mercedes, etc.) will film the event for an upcoming special".
