Coverville 710: The John Lennon Cover Story III

October 7, 2010

coverville-cover-story-album.jpgJohn Lennon would have turned 70 this coming weekend. But he left behind a really diverse catalog of music, making you wonder how he would have evolved, were he not taken from us in December 1980. His songwriting still lives on, however, in a collection of covers I present to you tonight. Tonight is the third volume of the John Lennon Cover Story, with the previous two episodes available here and here.

  1. I love Lennon, but which memorial dhow will usurp Devo next week? Bing Crosby, Leonard Bernstein,gene Vincent, John Denver, Edith Piaff, Cole Porter, Etta James etc.
    Great show, as usual. We are not dead? We are Devo!

  2. Hey Brian, thanks for the Lennon cover story. Great versions of some classics and I loved the background story on Claudine Longet. Great work!

  3. Happy birthday, John Lennon! I like it with headphones under a shady tree on a cool day with blue skies. Great show! Mighty fine selection.
