Playlist for 5-7-09 (Covers edition)


In an effort to get more people into our annual two-week fund drive, I decided to play a bunch of cover songs. People that may not normally be into college radio would be more into hearing songs they knew. Well, maybe it worked. I set a personal record for pledges submitted this year. Small victories. :)

The playlist:
