Happy Veterans Day to those of you who have served. This show has nothing particular to do with veterans, unless they’re the kind of people who enjoy cover songs. ‘Cause have we got cover songs for you today! Nothing but global versions of pop and rock and reggae classics for the full two hours of the show. I hope you enjoy.
