WRFB: Radio Free Brooklyn (Take 2)

What's good people!

Tonight was test show #2 for WRFB: Radio Free Brooklyn and it was another banger! We were without Rob Fields tonight, but he was with in spirit and he will be back in effect for the official launch next Tuesday May 4th.

My theme for tonight was "Covers." I happen to own some pretty incredible cover tunes by unsuspecting artists. Some of the joints I played many of you know and love, but I pulled out a few rare gems. Check the full play list below.

Remember there are so many ways to be in touch with us at WRFB. We are on Twitter, Skype and we have our own blog as well. I'll be posting the link to the show later this week so you can all tune in. I can't forget to shout out Brooklyn Movie Labs because they are the ones that made this all possible. Don't forget that I'm on twitter as well and I'll begin tweeting during the show next Tuesday. So keep up! I'll leave all the links below.

Without further ado, here is the latest play list in order of artist, song, album it's from (if I could find it) and original artist. Enjoy and see you next Tuesday from 7-11pm.
