Legit guitar rock, variety shows, punk royalty makeovers, and a tiptoe through the tulips. We look at I Love Rock And Roll, originally by The Arrows, covered by Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, and by Tiny Tim.

Yes, really.

Outro music is Tiptoe Through the Tulips with Me by Tiny Tim

We do something new this week. We dive into Stevie Wonder's classic Isn't She Lovely, covered by Mary Spender. Mary herself joins us to talk about the song, the kind of effort that goes into a cover like this, the wisdom of whistling on stage, and so much more.

Outro music is Mary's cover of John Mayer's New Light.

Wait, what?

The Tide Is High by The Paragons, covered by Blondie and by Seeed.

This is a trip deep into the Neil Diamond vault, a debate about what counts as the A-side of a single, and a tale of musical high school trauma. Red Red Wine, by Neil Diamond, covered by UB40.

Outro music is Cracklin' Rose by Neil Diamond
