Boots premiere on 2fm
« on: January 18, 2009, 11:26:50 PM »
I've tuned in online in Philadelphia - it's about 1:23 AM here!
Get On Your Boots should be on in about two hours.

My guess is that they will not be cutting off the online streaming during the premiere, because a minute ago the hosts (Colm and Jim-Jim, I think?) said welcome to all the U2 fans all over the world who are listening online. They said "Hola," "Bonjour," etc, and talked about how huge this "Monday Bloody Monday" is, and how U2 are the biggest band in the world and people from all over are tuning it. After that, I don't think they would cut out on us!

So, who else is listening? :)

Dear evel2314,

Top of the morning to you, pal!
How are you listening online? Internet radio via itunes, realplayer, etc?
A website? and if so, would you care to post the link?

Before I forget, congrats on the Steelers victory. I know that you're most likely an Eagles fan but still...it's good to have a team from your near your neck of the woods win and have a chance to go to the Super Bowl.

Here in Dallas, TX, things are just dismal in terms of our beloved Cowboys.
There's always next season.

They're reading names out on the radio,
Macphisto

Hello Macphisto!

I'm listening through realplayer, just in the window that came up when I clicked on the "listen live" link. It's on the right:

They're playing "Sometimes" at the moment...now they're talking about Dave Fanning and No Line on the Horizon!
Haha they were just trying to count how many albums U2 has released, including greatest hits stuff, and they started counting out of order...I started yelling "sixteen!" at the computer  :P

Yes, I'm an Eagles fan...and although they lost to the Cardinals today, they definitely did better than expected! They made a 3 touchdown comeback and were in the lead for a while!

Steelers are cool too. Yay, Pennsylvania!

Heh heh Cowboys...there's definitely been some hatin' between our two teams since T.O.'s switch!

Looking forward to the Superbowl...it's gonna be an interesting game.

I am listening through my Windows Media Player. They just said that Fanning would be coming up next and they are taking calls for fans with questions.

Whoa, my online stream just paused and my heart stopped. Then it turned out to be just a blip and came back, phew!

Is Dave Fanning coming on after this song? It should be 7:37 over there, thought he was coming on at 7:30.

It is a worldwide premiere for the radio. If they dont stream it I will find an on demand radio site here in the USA that will play it online.
