Default Interview of GL by Robbie Lane - Friday, March 13 - 9 to 10 p.m. ET

An interview of Gordon Lightfoot by Robbie Lane will be aired on Zoomer Radio tonight (March 13, 2020) from 9 to 10 p.m. Eastern Time.

Zoomer Radio can be heard on AM740 in Toronto (with coverage from "Kingston, ON to Windsor, ON" and "Parry Sound, ON to Pittsburgh, PA") and 96.7FM in downtown Toronto. I believe that Zoomer Radio can also be heard via the following link:
https://www.zoomerradio.ca/.

I am especially looking forward to hearing Gordon's answer to the question about his all-time favourite song.

Robbie Lane will be in conversation with Gordon Lightfoot Friday night [March 13, 2020] from 9-10pm [Eastern Time] for a special exclusive edition of Robbie Remembers.

These two old pals sit down for a chat about Gordon’s brand new album called ‘
SOLO‘, his health issues, and touring plans. Plus we’ll ask Gordon for his ‘all-time favourite’ song – it’s probably not what you expect.

Gordon Lightfoot currently appears on the cover of the March 2020 edition of Zoomer Magazine, on newsstands now! In this issue Gordon was photographed by another Canadian superstar, Bryan Adams.

When Robbie Lane asked Lightfoot "What is the number one song in your head from Gordon Lightfoot?", I was a bit surprised that Lightfoot responded that he felt his "best" song was "A Passing Ship".​

When Robbie Lane asked Lightfoot to name Lightfoot's favourite song from the "Solo" album, I was also a bit surprised ​when Lightfoot answered "Easy Flo". (In an interview with Markos Papadatos earlier this year (http://www.digitaljournal.com/entert...article/564950), Lightfoot had named "Better Off" as his favourite song from the album.)

​In any event, it was great to hear (on the radio program) "Easy Flo" a few days before the album is released. Of the three songs from the "Solo" album that I have heard so far ("Oh So Sweet", "Why Not Give It A Try" and "Easy Flo"), my favourite is "Oh So Sweet".

It was interesting to learn from the interview that Lightfoot felt that, if he had added band arrangements for the songs on the "Solo" album, it would have taken "two and a half years" to complete the album.

Lightfoot mentioned in the interview that, in addition to the ten songs that are included on the "Solo" album, he has "four or five more tunes left over actually right now". It would be great if those tunes eventually get released to the public!

In case anyone is interested, below are the songs that were played during the one-hour radio program (listed in the order in which they were played):​

Sundown​
If You Could Read My Mind​
Why Not Give It A Try​
Oh So Sweet​
A Passing Ship​
Easy Flo​
Early Morning Rain (1966 version)​
Go Go Round​
The Circle Is Small (1978 version)​
A Painter Passing Through (version from the "All Live" album)​
Home From The Forest​
