The Ledge #447: Covers

On one of my laptops I have a folder where I toss in any cover versions that I think could possibly include in a Ledge episode. Once that folder has a sufficient number of songs I know it's time to do a covers show.

This is that time. The folder is full. Overloaded, in fact. So tonight is nothing but remakes of great tunes. Some of them are well-known songs by the likes of Tom Petty, John Lennon, and The Rolling Stones, and The Ramones. Others may not be so obvious, such as Freddie Dilevi's version of "Johnny Remember Me", a 1961 UK number one hit song by John Leyton. It's a fun show that's perfect for this time of endless political turmoil. 

After listening, please go purchase those tracks you enjoy! These great artists deserve to be compensated for their hard work, and every purchase surely helps not only pay their bills but fund their next set of wonderful songs. You can find this show at almost any podcast site, including iTunes and Stitcher...or
