I found this strange. A quarter-century in the same town. Often writing about the same things. Living just up the road from one another. I had to have him on the podcast. I had always wanted to – for his fine body of work. I loved his collection of his first quarter-century in the journalism game. But he has a brand new book out, Book of Cohen – it’s a part-memoir, part biography, part travel story, it’s about various connection points with Cohen’s music, the shared surname, their family stories.

Well, David and I got to talking about music writing and how journalism has changed and we we talked through some of his career highlights in and around that.
A fabulous way to meet someone.
David’s book launches today at Slow Boat Records. Thursday, February 28. Check the book out. And I hope you enjoy this conversation.
