Start the Music 039 – The History of Cover Songs

New episode! New format! New segment!

How did cover songs come to be what they are today? Were they always tributes to the original artists? From a thesis paper that sparked the research, this episode, we change up the format and I discuss the evolution of the cover song from the 1940s to now and play some punk covers.

Discussion: What’s your favourite cover song?
