Ray's Cover Me

From the podcast: Blank Cassette

Thursday, October 26th, 2017

Once upon a time (6 years ago), Eric wrote for a covers blog called Cover Me. That blog is now a book, and we've got the book's author running down some of the greatest covers in history plus his own personal journey from music fan to blog editor to published author and expert. Ray Padgett's an awesome guy, and I highly recommend picking up his book, which is super fascinating. The Cover Me blog is also fantastic, and just today it's celebrating its 10th anniversary with a free downloadable mix of famous covers!
