#782 - Kodac Harrison Kodac Harrison Interview and Performances are featured on The Paul Leslie Hour. Are you here? Ahh, there's a lot of you that are here. And what are you doing? You're listening to The Paul Leslie Hour, of course. We have something extra special for you today. This is undoubtedly the most in-depth interview Paul has ever done. He welcomed singer-songwriter - poet, spoken word artist and recording artist Kodac Harrison to come and give his entire story. The whole story… and to play music. Kodac Harrison was described by Creative Loafing newspaper of Savannah, Georgia in this way: “Imagine a Southern Tom Waits or a rural Leonard Cohen. That's as close as we can come to a nut-shell description of the music of Kodac Harrison, a genuinely gifted artist and one of the southeast's musical treasures.” And to that we say, well stated! Kodac Harrison was interviewed in great detail and also performed songs and spoken word poetry. This was recorded at Jordan Digital Studios and then broadcast over the radio in a 4-part special. Today, ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, we present the entirety of what went down that evening all in one place. By the way, you can be a supporter of spoken word and patron of independent media by going to www.thepaulleslie.com/support We thank all of you who help keep this show going. Whether it's a buck or two or more, it makes the mission possible. I see no reason to delay. Let's hear the Kodac Harrison session. Now. The Paul Leslie Hour is a talk show dedicated to “Helping People Tell Their Stories.” Some of the most iconic people of all time drop in to chat.

Ladies n' Genminminminminmin (er, min...) please welcome for a SECOND pass through The Good Listening to 'Clearing' the gorgeous human being - Lord Starkey himself (!) - Reg Starkey!To talk about an audio book that Reg has lovingly produced posthumously for and about his old friend Andrew Tyler, who took the courageous decision to end his own life at Dignitas in 2017 rather than be sucked deeper into the vortex of Parkinsons disease.When Andrew Tyler was born in the late I940s, average life expectancy for a baby boy in the UK was 69 years. What an amazing story Andrew made of his 69 years! And what an extraordinary interview this is, focusing as it does, posthumously, on his memoirs. A brief background: ‘My Life as an Animal' was first published as a paperback by his widow, Sara, as a source of funds for Animal Aid, the organisation to which Andrew devoted the last 20 years of his ‘great life'.  With the help of  sound engineer, Tom Davidson and voice and music-man, Jim Smith, the paperback was then converted into an audio recording - and then converted into a master-tape for a broadcast-quality audiobook by Elliott Frisby at Monkeynut. Andrew Tyler was sent by his mother, as a ‘boarder' to a Jewish orphanage, in the same way that richer parents might have sent him to a Prep School. The difference was that Andrew hardly saw anything of his mother for the next 8 years. He left with a few Hebrew prayers -  and no qualifications - in his early teens. He got a job as an office boy on a fashion trade magazine and worked his way across to being a junior reporter. Still in his teens, he moved to another magazine as Deputy Editor. Then, passport and guitar in hand, he left his mother and London behind, taking off for Toronto, Canada. It was 1967 and the centre of the known universe was San Francisco, California. Andrew was there, almost by accident. He decided to stay! The Hippie Trail appealed to him. He shared their (naive?) idealism. He writes lovingly about all of it. Some years and many adventures later, he returned to London via Canada. His mother was surprised to see him! He had an Anglo Canadian band, which he rated as competent rather than brilliant. He returned to journalism, with a great opportunity on New Musical Express. Now, when he returned to the USA, hotels and limousines were involved rather than hitch hiking and Greyhound buses. Andrew's NME credentials gave him access to people like Leonard Cohen, John Lennon, David Bowie and Bruce Springsteen. His kindly approach made stars like Marianne Faithful share their secrets with him. He switched from music to social issues. He wrote a text book: ‘Street Drugs'. He met Sara. He embraced Animal Rights. He became a pioneer vegan and an Animal Rights campaigner. Together they moved from Hampstead to Tonbridge where Andrew became the Director of Animal Aid. For the next two decades, this occupied virtually every minute of his waking hours - until his back cracked under the strain and the doctors diagnosed a more serious/chronic condition: Parkinson's Disease. Sara and Andrew kept this secret until it became impossible for Andrew to function effectively in his role as Director.Secretly they applied to Dignitas to end his life legally, privately and with dignity. And this is what they did. Under Swiss law, Andrew had to drink the lethal dose from a glass in his own hand. He told Sara he was going to say: “This tastes awful! What are you trying to do - kill me?!” Sara advised against it but it made them both smile. Weeks later, his stepson Davy made the journey solo to Switzerland to bring Andrew's ashes back to England. His book - and this interview - will ensure that Andrew Tyler's ideals live on in perpetuity - as a permanent record of his own great life. Together they will ensure that he did not die in vain.

No tribute here, only an exploration of the musical legacy left behind by one of the premier production geniuses of 20th century rock and roll. We won't dwell on the poor example of a human being attached to his personal legacy; but the music he gave us was pure gold and his ‘wall of sound' became synonymous with early sixties classics from The Ronettes, The Righteous Brothers, The Crystals, Gene Pitney, and so many others. His later career found him turning up in production studios with the likes of The Beatles, The Ramones, Leonard Cohen, and others. Along the line his name was also attached to a wide range of songs in copyright; songs that celebrated youth, love, blusterous rivers deep, and soaring mountains high. And we'll fit as much as we can into our two hour show on Sonoma County Community Radio.

Smoked meat and bagels. Both of these foods were made popular in Montreal's Mile End neighbourhood which, at one time, was mainly home to Jewish immigrants. It is also where my father grew up. On a recent trip to dad's old stomping grounds, I spoke to two general managers of Mile End's culinary institutions: Schwartz's Deli and St-Viateur Bagel. We chatted about the history of their businesses and the enduring popularity of their food. Both destinations were favourites of Anthony Bourdain and Leonard Cohen.

His subsequent writing in the three decades since has been breathtaking in its prose and penetrating in its analysis of Jewish and Israeli life.

On this episode, we discuss the 1988 LP by Leonard Cohen, I'm Your Man.  Cohen gained fame as a writer of poetry and novels before he gained fame as a musician. He writes some of the most compelling (and often covered) songs in popular music (including the ubiquitous “Hallelujah”). His early albums fit more into the folk idiom, but on later albums, he began to experimenting with synthesizers and incorporating them into the mix culminating with this album. I'm Your Man is an album filled with technology that may sound straight out of the 80s, but it also contains lyrics that touch on timeless themes such as age (Cohen was in his 50s when this album was released), love, and religion.  This critically acclaimed LP is an unusual mix of techno-soundscapes and thought provoking lyrics that stands out in Cohen's long and storied career.

In October 1973, the poet and singer Leonard Cohen—thirty-nine years old, famous, unhappy, and at a creative dead end—traveled from his home on the Greek island of Hydra to the chaos and bloodshed of the Sinai desert when Egypt attacked Israel on the Jewish high holiday of Yom Kippur. Moving around the front with a guitar and a group of local musicians, Cohen met hundreds of young soldiers, men and women at the worst moment of their lives. Those who survived never forgot the experience. And the war transformed Cohen. He had announced that he was abandoning his music career, but he instead returned to Hydra and to his family, had a second child, and released one of the best albums of his career. In Who by Fire, journalist Matti Friedman gives us a riveting account of those weeks in the Sinai, drawing on Cohen's previously unpublished writing and original reporting to create a kaleidoscopic depiction of a harrowing, formative moment for both a young country at war and a singer at a crossroads. Matti Friedman is an award-winning journalist and author. Born in Toronto and based in Jerusalem, his work has appeared regularly in the New York Times, The Atlantic, Tablet, and elsewhere.

(( headphones recommended for optimal immersion and enjoyment )) “Art is the only truly effective means we have of engaging, in a communal context, the psyche on its own terms,” writes jF Martel, the co-host of the Weird Studies podcast and the author of the brilliant book “Reclaiming Art in the Age of Artifice”, in which he distills a clear, working definition of art, in relation to its antithesis, artifice. Treating the episode as a book report, we use the philosophy put forth in its pages as a springboard to examine the implications of ai-generated images, and the potential consequences of outsourcing one's intuitive sensibilities to a dreaming machine.

Matti Friedman is one of the most thoughtful writers when it comes to all matters related to Israel, on the broader Middle East, and also on trends in the world of journalism. He is a monthly writer for Tablet Magazine and a regular contributor to The Atlantic. His newest book is called “Who by Fire: Leonard Cohen in the Sinai.” Before that he published "Spies of No Country: Secret Lives at the Birth of Israel," and before that "Pumpkinflowers: A Soldier's Story of a Forgotten War," which was chosen as a New York Times' Notable Book and as one of Amazon's 10 best books of the year, and was selected as one of the year's best by Foreign Affairs Magazine. Matti's army service included tours in Lebanon. His work as a reporter has taken him from Israel to Lebanon, Morocco, Moscow, the Caucasus, and Washington, DC. He is a former Associated Press correspondent and essayist for the New York Times opinion section. We cover a lot of topics in this podcast, including how to make sense of the recent Israel-Gaza flare-up, how to view it in the frame of the broader Middle East, the state of journalism and how it covers geopolitical events and wars, and we also dive into his newest book, “Who By Fire."
