Global Cover Songs

Show Notes

Who can resist the not-so-subtle charms of cover songs by global bands? Not me. So I shared an hour's worth with you, my devoted listeners, this week on Spin The Globe. In the second hour, faves, new releases, and requests. Oh, and a very popular ticket giveaway to see Vagabond Opera at the Triple Door in Seattle!


Past Spin The Globe shows are available for a limited time in our archives. See the Listen page

See Spin the Globe's CD Reviews for reviews and info on new releases. Most of the music played on Spin the Globe is available on CD at cdRoots.com or CD Universe or via mp3 downloads at Calabash.
