First off: Thanks to everyone who called in this show. It's great to know who's listening and to get great feedback from my listeners. I hope to hear from all of you next week :)
1. Willy Mason did just about the coolest cover ever when he re-did the hip-hop classic "The Message" by Grandmaster Flash. You can collect it here and finally recognize how great the lyrics are.
2. In other folk artists covering rap songs splendor, Bonnie "Prince" Billy is creating a cover album which you can read about here. On the show, I played his version of "Ignition" by R. Kelly and it was fantastic. You can pick it up here (along with a bunch of other cool covers)
3. Xiu Xiu covers "Ceremony" by New Order and does a better job than anyone else who was smart enough to hop on the covering-New Order and Joy Division bandwagon. Pick it up here.
4. Jonathan Richman covered "Back In the USA" and he's coming to Santa Cruz! And we're giving away tickets! Start researching here and stay tuned on KZSC for those freebies :)
