Radio, Radio, Radio...
It will be U2 all day long at Cleveland's WBWC 88.3 FM The Sting at the end
of the month.
Cleveland College Radio have announced their 'U2002 Marathon', sequel to
last year's "Beautiful Day 2001" Marathon. The station will be taking
requests for U2 tracks from across the world and playing them non-stop from
7am on May 30th to 1am the next morning. And you can listen on the web.
and Mary Cipriani
- longtime college DJs and U2 fans - will
again be co-hosting the broadcast and fans can participate by requesting
their favorite U2 track via email to the pair.
"We have an extensive U2 collection available at the campus station, so no
request for an import, b-side, remix, soundtrack etc is too obscure for us
to play" says Cipriani. "Fans may even specify the hour (EST) in which
they'd like to hear the song. We'll do our best to accomodate all the
requests from the emails we receive in advance."
Listeners may also call in on the
studio request line at 440-826-2187 on the day of the marathon. "In 2001,
we received dozens of emails from around the world," says Cipriani. "We
were amazed by the response of U2 fans listening in."
