Radio 1 Releases 40th Anniversary Album



BBC's Radio 1 is celebrating their over the hill birthday this year with the release of a special covers album that is coming out September 30 overseas. The 40-track record boasts a hit single from every year of the station's broadcast history that is covered by a popular artist from today. We think it is a pretty interesting idea, and it is totally going to be one of the many imports that we pick up this year.
