Announcing Radio Milwaukee's Top 100 Albums of 2019

If you listen to Radio Milwaukee regularly, you know that the end of the year list season is one of our favorite times of the year. This year we're going all out and trying something different: We'll be counting down our top 100 albums of the year all week on the air from 7 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday-Friday, playing a full five or six songs from each album. You won't find a deeper dive into the year's best music; you're bound to hear something you've never heard before.

Do you love our DJs’ musical knowledge and passion?  Become a member or make a one-time gift today and support our independent programming! 

You can find a complete list of our top 100 albums below, but you'll have to listen next week to see how they're ranked.
