A "Vertigo" clip on the radio!

Holy crap, holy crap!

I was just sitting here with insomnia, with the radio quietly on in the background; I was listening to 92.1 WFNX, which is located out of Manchester, NH. And suddenly I snapped to, and I couldn't quite figure out why. Then I realized the song they were playing sounded incredibly familiar. Then I realized it was Bono singing. Then my heart exploded as I heard him sing, "Hello, hello!" They were playing a (rather short, but still) clip of "Vertigo"! Full quality, no Spanish guys or anything. Then an announcer came on and said, "WFNX, the place to hear new U2 music first," or somesuch comment. So the thing was basically a commercial for the new single!

They played "EBTtRT" right after.

I think this might have been one of the most exciting moments of my life.

Unfortunately, I don't think WFNX allows you to listen live via the web. But if you get it in your area, then listen often...

I can't wait for the 24th. If you thought the song sounded great muffled to all hell, you're going to faint when you hear it in all its full-quality glory.

This seems quite doubtful as how would someone in the US get a snippet from U2? I don't believe this guy, he gives me the vibe that hes on of those people who make up false reports to get a reaction. Unless he can post back with more details or better yet ring up the station to enquire about it, I'm writing this one off.

I'm sure the station was sent a short, promotional MP3 to advertise the single. So is this what I'm supposed to ask the station if I call them up? "How did you get this clip?" It seems pretty obvious they're not playing this off the stolen CD or anything.

And even if I did call, why would you believe what I report back? Why would you trust someone who apparently likes to make up false news for some sort of sad attention?

By all means, call them yourself though...or, uh, don't, as looking at your location I'd imagine that's quite a hefty bill to pay. Somebody do it, at least. (877) 369-7234. Ask them something along the lines of, "My friend told me you're playing an advertisement for the new U2 single. Is this true?"

I wish I had a way to prove it myself. I feel kind of stupid for posting this without a way to back it up, but I was just really, shakingly excited.

ok since shaun vox is reporting that BBC 1 will play it next week, it is probably true. So how long was the clip? Is it just a small promotional thing or was it longer than that?

I wonder if they'd play it again if you called and requested it. Maybe you could record it for us? I fully believe you, I'd just love to hear it, as I'm sure we all would

Very small. The part I heard, after realizing just what was playing, was only about five seconds long (the "You're in vertigo, hello, hello!" or however it goes bit), but there was a bit more before.

Hah, call a radio station to request a commercial! I like it. I don't know if it'd work, though...

I'm recording unsavvy, unfortunately.

All I can suggest is for people to listen to the radio as much as possible this week. Especially if places like BBC1 are actually going to play the whole thing!

Surprises me Radio 1 are gonna play it a couple of weeks before they should, still that's all good with me man! If they play it next week it's bound to be on next Friday on Chris Moyles show as he's a huge U2 fan or Joe Wylie's show as she usually gets the scoop on U2.

Hey Mr Vox,

Can I ask where you heard about BBC radio 1 playing the song? Do you know when? My guess is that it will be on the Jo Whiley show.. can't wait.!

God I hate Chris Moyles. I hope it's Jo Whiley I don't think I can bear having to listen to his entire show..
