How the light gets in on BBC Radio 2

Postby phreil » Mon Nov 06, 2017 11:12 pm

BBC Radio 2 10pm today GMT, there is a programme about Leonard presented by Jeremy Paxman. The blurb says:

Lifelong fan Jeremy Paxman pays tribute to the inspirational and much loved Canadian singer, songwriter, musician, poet, novelist, and painter Leonard Cohen, with help from Judy Collins, Suzanne Vega, Rufus Wainwright, Alistair Darling and Arthur Smith.
...more...or less...or more again...the rest is plain to see..

My (very) low opinion of Jeremy Paxman got a little higher with this.

Well worth a listen.
