If you want to be introduced to a LOT of new (or new-to-you) music ...
Does it sometimes seem like you're bored of every song on your iTunes playlist? Coverville is your antidote! I've been listening to this podcast for a little over a year, and I eagerly await every new episode. I've discovered a ton of new artists, as well as new and interesting versions of some of my favourite songs. With different episode formats like the artist Cover Story, interviews, request shows, Originalville and a ton of theme shows, this podcast is never boring and is definitely worth a listen.
Weird, wonderful and updated regularly. A fantastic source of oddities and hard to find versions of songs you know. Well and truly worth your time
totally one of my favorites
I reccomend this podcast regularly to my friends who are always so amazed that this podcast is out there. So much fun.
