Love Covers

(aired 8/12/11)

love covers

Can you believe that I’ve never done the theme of LOVE on Maya’s Mix? Surprising but true. Originally I thought my show this week would just focus on general cover songs. After I put together the first two sets, I realized that 5 of the songs happened to have the word “love” in their titles! This discovery spawned the conclusion that it’s high time we explore one of the most frequently-used words in music. And there’s a twist: given my original intentions for the show, all the songs are covers.

I have a feeling you’ll love it…
