Bruce, Blair, Vanessa, Michael, and Neel

Our own Michael Proudfoot proudly stepped into the world of cover songs. He uncovered a treasure trove of examples and ideas. Have a listen as the Song Talk Radio team plus Blair Packham (The Jitters) tackles:



  • when everything was a cover

  • the difference between 45, 78, and 33 1/3 rpm records

  • professional songwriters writing for professional singers

  • How The Beatles shifted pop culture by both writing and performing their own songs

  • Jimi Hendrix covers All Along the Watchtower (Bob Dylan)

  • authenticity (Sarah McLachlan) and self-expression

  • Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, Carole King, Leonard Cohen

  • singing someone else’s song – making it universal

  • Husker Du, Love Is All Around (Sonny Curtis)
