Hear Julie Christensen Talk About Her Leonard Cohen Audition & The 1988 Austin City Limits Show

Julie Christensen tells how Roscoe Beck recommended her as a backup singer for the 1988 Leonard Cohen tour, describes discussing the tour with Leonard over a grilled cheese, and explains the role of exhaustion played in performing the 1988 Austin City Limits Show. The show ends with a 1993 recording of Leonard Cohen & Julie Christensen performing “Joan of Arc.” The segment dealing with Leonard Cohen begins at 17:35 but the entire interview is fascinating. The podcast is found at Short Report: Oct 13, 2015.
