UNDERCOVER w/ Charlie


  • Friday 2-4pm
Genre: 
Cover Songs

Is Imitation really the greatest form of flattery?

Did you ever hear the remake of a song that blew the original out of the water?  Artists like Cat Power and Jimi Hendrix (and MANY more) have reinvented songs and given them new meaning with their interpretation of the material.

The journey of this show will take you through rock, ska, blues, reggae, jazz and some assorted goofy music to showcase the relationship of songwriter and singer by exploring the covers.  Each set tends to start off with a focus on a particular recording artist or writer, and then things just go haywire from there.  Mayhem ensues.  And it's fun.  Listeners are encouraged to call in with their knowledge of obscure recordings.  Mondays from 2-4PM
