A (Very) Brief History: Cover Me began in 2006 as a cover songs radio show that went largely unheard in backwoods New Hampshire. In fall ’07, Cover Me took on blog form. It’s remained that way ever since.
Cover Me posts news articles and features all week, focusing on cover songs, tribute albums, and the like. Features include:
- Cover Commissions asks readers to vote on what song a featured artist should cover exclusively for the blog.
- Song of the Day is pretty much what it sounds like.
- The Full Albums collections go track-by-track through a classic album.
- Under the Radar focuses on a lesser-known cover artiste.
- In the Spotlight, like Under the Radar but for famous folks.
- Download This points you to neat web freebies.
- Five Good Covers examines an oft-covered song from a variety of genres.
- On the ‘Tube extracts YouTube diamonds from all the coal.
