The Mystery Song of the Week is when we play a song and ask the listeners to call in and tell us the artist and title of the song we played. We post their name on our Facebook page ( and announce their name over the air. The Cover Song of the Week is when we play an a given song by a original artist and then the cover version by another artist.
