“Only A Cover Song” is a weekly program on Beatles-A-Rama hosted by Dan Augustine of Detroit, Michigan. And it’s not just cover songs that you will hear on “Only A Cover Song”, you will also hear songs about The Beatles (ie “Beatles and The Stones” by House of Love), songs that mention The Beatles within the lyrics (ie “All The Young Dudes” by Mott The Hoople), songs from the same era as The Beatles (ie “Be My Baby” by The Ronettes), songs by other groups or artists that one or more Beatles played on (ie “Badge” by Cream), songs by other musicians from Liverpool (ie Elvis Costello), “Same Title, Different Song” (ie “Come Together” by The MC5 is not the same as The Beatles’ “Come Together”), songs The Beatles wrote about someone else (ie “Sexy Sadie” is about Maharishi Yogi), songs The Beatles wrote for someone else (ie Paul wrote “Woman” for Peter & Gordon), other cover songs (ie Billy Fury’s cover of Conway Twitty’s “It’s Only Make Believe”) and MUCH, MUCH MORE! The show is a lot fun! There's a new theme each episode and Dan "covers" alot on the show! So, how can you listen? There are three ways:
