Here at CBC Music we’re digging into the CBC archives to unearth some of the most obscure music clips of Canadian musicians.

In honour of Leonard Cohen’s 80th birthday this Sunday, we went on the hunt to find one of his first musical performances on television.

We found this gem from the news magazine show Take 30, from 1966. Watch Cohen perform “The Stranger Song” while promoting his book Beautiful Losers.
