You know that a concert is getting closer...
« on: August 10, 2010, 12:58:40 PM »
... when you hear WOWY everywhere! I've heard it today:
* From radio at work and in my car 3 times.
* At the supermarket
* At a warehouse where I was picking up my new iPod   ;D

(I wonder if the radio stations have any other songs from U2 than WOWY!?!)

Please feel free to add up!

I've been hearing WOWY and a bunch of U2 songs on the radio. but theres not a gig here and in Oklahoma they rarely ever play U2 on the radio.  So you can say that I was thrilled and had goosebumps.  :D

In the UK we usually tend to get Streets and ISHFWILF. I've heard them a couple of times in the last week or so.

I think that most radio stations have a very limited knowledge of U2's back catalogue ... that's if they play them at all!    :'(

Maybe the only one is Absolute Radio (former Virgin1215) in the UK, it's excellent for U2.
Everyday you get some deep probing of the back catalogue. Incredibly got Two Hearts yesterday !! And that was during lunchtime at about 1300 ish . Also hear Bad occasionally, it was the first time I had ever heard that song on a national radio station.
You also get more usual tunes like Vertigo, Sometimes, Blinding lights, NYD, UF, ISIFWILF,Streets etc etc

That's really interesting. I will have to check them out ... a radio station that plays Two Hearts has got to be worth a listen!   ;D

I did hear Pride on Kerrang Radio today but that can hardly be regarded as adventurous!!

Every time I've been in the car the past few days, U2 has been on the radio :P
