With the legendary Leonard Cohen playing Radio City Music Hall next week, I thought it would be a nice time to go back and look at Suzanne’s 1992 interview with Leonard.
In the last Measure for Measure Blog for a while, Suzanne reflects on writing the blog.

First day of spring
Can’t believe that the last blog entry was before the election! Four and a half months ago. It has been a long cold winter. Time at home has been spent dealing with health, family, organizing, learning about Facebook, figuring what the future is going be. (Also going to Albany and Washington DC lobbying for the arts and for the performance royalty! Something new for me.) Right now I am in the studio a couple of days a week rerecording my catalog. So far I have done: Cracking, Marlene on the Wall, Makes Me Wonder, Penitent, World Before Columbus, New York Is A Woman, Calypso, Luka. More later!!
Suzanne discusses Bob Dylan, Lou Reed and what’s a melody for?
