What to do with all my covers?

I have been wondering lately (since I left my show at SCAD Radio) what I’m going to do with the 500+ cover songs I have collected. As some of you may remember I had a show at SCAD Radio called Cover Flow/Like A Version where I played 2 hours of just covers every week. Since leaving SCAD and SCAD Radio I haven’t had any real use or purpose for all of these covers and it has been driving me mad. I couldn’t possibly get rid of them because of the hours and hours of effort put into collecting them, but for the same reason I can’t stand the fact that they just sit in a folder on my hard drive. So I came up with a plan (or a rough draft for a plan); I am going to make a playlist every week and post it on my blog.

Here is a playlist from a show I did earlier this year where the first hour was french themed (one of the only “theme” showsI ever had):
