Get Yourself Covered! This weeks show is a selection of weird and wonderful cover versions. Some are better than the originals… some remind you how good the originals are and some just take the piss out the originals!!!
Highlights are Mae West, Jack Nitzsche, Angel Corpus Christie and Julie London turning Bubblegum into schmaltzy MOR.
