    You know I never say anything bad because you do so much work and research but this week’s cover is forgettable. A few more listens and I will give you the positives and there will be many.

    So cool that you added Rains of Castamere. I’m a huge GoT fan and that song is such a big part of the books. The song played during the credits of the 2nd to last episode this season and it was perfect. That said, not sure I would, you know, listen to it in my car or anything lol.

    Thanks Pamela and lIsa. Agreed with The National song. Sometimes I feel I need to play something even if it doesn’t fit. I’m quite sure that will be the only time you’ll hear it on the radio.
