Cover of the Week Returns!

So after an approximately two-year hiatus (for those of you who knew me back at WPGU-FM in Champaign), I have begun once again to do a segment on my show that I like to call the Cover of the Week. In it, I play the original version of a song and a cover version of it by a different artist for your comparing/contrasting pleasure. This segment will start at approximately 5:10 am during each week's show (or about an hour and ten minutes into the podcast, if that's your thing). This week's show can be found here. The first ever COTW for my show on WHPK: "All Along The Watchtower" by Bob Dylan and covered by Jimi Hendrix. A good start, I think. The entire show's playlist follows. Take care, and see you next week!
