Second Hand Songs

About The SecondHandSongs Radio Show

SecondHandSongs is a weekly show all about cover versions. Each week we bring you an hours
worth of the best cover versions, from those which are hits in their own right to hidden gems, foreign
language covers, songs you didn’t realise were covers and more.

On each show we will be focusing in on one or two songs to bring you the story of the song (The
Cover Story), as well as creating a new “Cover Chain” each week, where we try to link different cover
versions together. Then we end each week with an Obscure Original of a song you probably didn’t
realise was a cover.

The show is produced in association with, the online database of cover
