Under The Covers: January 2024

Cover lovers unite! Every week this month, we curated and broadcast mixtapes composed entirely of artists covering other artists’ songs. Even the requests I couldn’t fit into the shows, I’ve added to a master playlist below (save and share!). Enjoy each of the four “Under The Covers” editions of Thematic Static and tune in each week — first on Thursdays at 9 a.m., and again Saturdays at 7 p.m. — for new themed sets.

We love collecting your requests on Instagram and Twitter/X @WNXPNashville, plus playing the voice memos you leave when you call 615-320-9100 or visit wnxp.org/feedback.
