The Real Congregation :: We’ve Got You Covered! :: 3/4/13

Posted by MarcWithaC on March 5, 2013

The Real CongregationSo, we had a request for a microsode by one Geoffrey Voss. A request that we’d devote thirty minutes to the art of the cover song. The arrangements, how one is chosen, etc. Sir Voss also requested that we have Walt Ribeiro from For Orchestra along for the ride. And that sounded pretty good, but… it just wasn’t enough.

Instead? We’re devoting TWO HOURS to this wide topic, playing you some of the coolest and most interesting interpretations around. Your host, Marc With a C, knows that there’s no way to really wrap this episode up in a way that will please everyone, so he’s done his best to merely dip his foot into what is ultimately a very, very deep well. Come along for the ride, featuring an interview with Walt Ribeiro!
