Show #52 - COVERED: Remakes of classic songs that made us take notice
Oftentimes, covers of songs don’t get the same respect as the original. Sometimes the performing artist phones it in, or the style of the cover just doesn’t work. When it does work, though, a cover version can rival that of the original, and, in some cases, improve on it. Join us for this show as we cover … covers.
