Playlist: Episode #705, August 27, 2017 – Classics Uncovered

This is one of those “standby” episodes that you might hear again some day, but it’s so darn good that you surely won’t mind!

Hanging out at music festivals (especially smaller ones), you hear a lot of artists covering other artists. This episode is full to the brim with classic songs that have been covered by others in my recent travels.
