Playlist 10-8-10

A few things leftover from last night’s “The Promise: The Making of Darkness at the Edge of Town,” new live stuff from Leonard Cohen and scattered other bands.

And then a big 70th birthday salute to John Lennon, first with covers of his solo material and then a lot of Beatles songs in which he was the central voice. But even so, only got partly through the catalogue.

Here’s what I played on the radio this morning:
