This day in Gordon Lightfoot history

You’ve probably heard that today is the anniversary of the sinking of the Edmund Fitzgerald, a day that can be difficult for fans of maritime history who dislike Gordon Lightfoot.


That’s why we’re delighted to refer you to another piece of history: The day the inimitable T.D. Mischke conducted an interview with a historian, asking all of his questions as Lightfoot.

Here’s the audio. If you want to get right to the interview, scroll all the way to 7:30 (or click the YouTube click). But listen to the whole thing.
