All day we are playing tracks from a new album that we are all VERY excited about...
HEREOS is a collection of covers by some of today's hottest up and coming artists. They asked 15 ultimate icons to select a favourite song from their classic back catalogue and to nominate the new act they most trust to create a unique interpretation of that hand-picked track.
HEROES is the result: 15 exclusive and breath-taking cover versions.
This album is full of artists new and old that we currently play here on the station. Check out the tracklist. It's a virtual who's-who of Radio Milwaukee:

Scissor Sisters (Roxy Music: Do The Strand)
Lily Allen (The Clash: Straight To Hell)
