No one says it like Leonard Cohen, but this week on Retrofit a few gifted artists give it a try. An hour of Leonard Cohen covers means we get the comfort and the songs but the originator drifts like a shadow on the wood.  

Retrofit: Leonard Cohen Covers airs 5 p.m. Saturday.

To complement the hour, as a fine wine might improve a lonely Canadian winter night, here's a playlist of Leonard Cohen originals.
