Top notch podcast
Coverville figured out how to make licensed music work in a podcast. Top notch music and each show tends to have some tidbits. Brian has favorite generes but keeps the selection very eclectic.
Coverville was, is and, by all indications, will continue to be one of the most entertaining, interesting music podcasts available. Brian somehow finds cover songs in the widest variety of musical styles and genres and somehow makes them play well togehter. Whether it's single-artist cover stories, all-request shows, theme shows (acapella, anyone?) or just plain hodgepodge shows, Coverville is always fun, interesting and entertaining. Long live Coverville!
Since its inception, Coverville has been the best music podcast going. The mix of music is fantastic, and the host, Brian Ibbott, keeps it fresh with a variety of theme shows. His knowledge and love of the music he plays makes the show even better. If you're a music geek, you can't go wrong with Coverville.
