94.5 KATS-FM rocked out with our Halloween Masquerade Ball over the weekend. It was pretty awesome listening to our favorite artists, covering THEIR favorite artists. Over the weekend I heard many songs I love, played by different bands that I love. Win freakin' win! Some blew me away and some even educated me. Learning for the first time of a certain cover (Nickelback covering Charlie Daniels for example). I figured, if it was new to me, it might be new to the KATS listeners as well, so here's our KATS Halloween Masquerade Ball Wrap-Up!
