Coverville: A Cover Music Podcast

I have been listening to Brian Ibbott's podcast entitled Coverville for several years.  Brian generally creates two podcasts each week featuring new renditions of previously recorded songs.  Brian really knows music and I have discovered artists I have come to love as a result of Brian's labor of love.  These artists include The Beautiful South, Keane and Paul Carrack. Brian provides commentary but not too much.  He lets the music he selects speak for itself, which I appreciate.  Some shows are themed (e.g.,  covers of best song winners from the Academy Awards) and some shows are an agreeable hodgepodge of listener requests.  Brian has a calming and clear radio voice.  I highly recommend this podcast.  You can subscribe in iTunes.
