"Darkness" on BBC Radio 2

Post by ScottM » Wed Jan 11, 2012 12:11 am

After finishing a long and gruelling meeting today about 4.15, I was not looking forward to the 3 hour drive home.
As I set off, I tuned the radio to Steve Wright in the Afternoon on BBC Radio 2.
I could not believe my good luck when "Wrighty" told the listeners about the new Leonard Cohen Album "Old Ideas" and introduced "the new single "Darkness".
It really set me up for the drive home. Also Steve, was complimentary about the record and Leonard too. Well ..."We like it" he informed us.
Great to hear Leonard on mainstream radio!.

That's great it's getting some play on the radio, who'd have thunk it :D

I have Radio 2 on all day at work - can't believe this is the one day in a million I left a little early! I will be waiting for this tomorrow! Best song on Radio 2 since I don't know when!
