Monday Breakfast Blend presents:

There has not been much new music being released in the past two months, and my pile of new tunes has dwindled down to barely enough for a third of a show. So, instead of the usual, I’m pulling from my own collection to bring you two hours of cover songs.

For me, a good cover song is not a tribute/reproduction of the original recording. It works best when it’s coming from a different genre or style than the performer, who then makes the song their own. Like, taking a hair band song and turning it into a country western. Or a pop song turned punk.

I hope you enjoy this show as much as I enjoy sharing these songs with you!

You can read updates and get previews by liking this show on Facebook. Did you enjoy the show or want to listen to it again? You can find it in the archive player for the next two weeks.
