evening in December of 1974, Leonard Cohen went on WBAI FM in New York
City. This radio interview has rarely been heard since the night it
aired. But it's been preserved by the Pacifica Radio Archives (http://pacificaradioarchives.org).
talked about his creative endeavors and influences during the
interview, but we circled in on the conversation about his writing and
his poetry. Cohen read a poem he had written nearly 20 years earlier,
Two Went to Sleep. There's something about hearing him read his own
words and taking a journey into his mind. RIP.
