2017-11-10 World Music Covers of Popular Songs

Yat-KhaHappy 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.

Bugotak - world music cover songs on Spin The Globe radioThere’s good news, and there’s bad news. The bad news is that despite proper watering and fertilization, this week’s show recording disappeared into the ether sometime in the early hours of the afternoon. We looked under the sofa cushions, yes. Nowhere to be found. The good news is, we do have the playlist, which means you can still do some digging on your own to track down some of these odd and wonderful cover songs. You can also head over to Mixcloud and listen to lots of other installments of STG. Just not this week’s show.
