Playlist: Episode #668, November 13, 2016

Any self-respecting singer/songwriter show had better take note of the passing of one of the true giants of songwriting, so much of today’s show is devoted to the passing of Leonard Cohen and his lasting legacy. But he’s not the only one, as we had to pay our respects to the late Leon Russell, as well. But, dwelling on deaths isn’t all we do here, so we threw a 70th birthday party for Ray Wylie Hubbard, talked about a wortwhile fundraiser going on soon, and played some great new music!
