SecondhandSongs is an addictive weekly show  about cover versions. Covers which were bigger hits than the originals, as well as  foreign language Versions.  Look out for the  “Cover Chain” feature, where we try to link different cover versions together.

The show is produced in association with, the online database of cover versions.
