Show Description

The Worlds Number One Independent Cover Version Radio Show!

We are all about cover versions on SecondHandSongs. We play big hits, hidden gems and some obscure originals to songs you didn’t realise were covers. Plus we delve into the story behind a track or two and we do the Cover Chain, where we link a series of songs together.

Plus every third episode is a special themed show. Previous themes include Musicals, Rock Week, Unexpected Covers, Foreign Language and even covers of the complete Guardians of the Galaxy Soundtrack.

All shows are timeless, so can be re-broadcast at any time and will still sound fresh and new. New stations are welcome to begin broadcasting from our current episode or start from Episode 1.
