I got a response from Indie 103.1 regarding you know...

Here’s the honest truth about what happened. We were told by the record company that we were getting a copy of the new song “Vertigo” either sometime Sunday or Monday. Then they decided to move the release date to September 24th. Since it was a holiday weekend we didn’t find out until the last minute. We meant nothing malicious by it. It was an honest mistake by both Indie and Interscope Records. Thanks for understanding.
Thanks for listening!

And they decided to wait until now to tell us, rather than simply explaining that on-air at the time ...?

"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."

The radio release date has been the 24th since it was first announced...

That's what I was thinking. The station punk'd everyone and now they don't want to own up to it.

It was "officially" the 24th long before indie did their bit.

Dude…

That was a cheap shot.

You can’t claim to play the brand new U2 single (we have recordings of you saying so) and then just straight-up jack us like that. I was all hyped up to hear some new U2. I’m on the East Coast of Canada and I’ve been listening to Indie since I woke up this morning. It’s now 4:30 AM (12:30 AM your time).

You boned us royally.

I think you owe somewhat of an explanation.

Dave"

I'm tempted to reply to this and tell them exactly what you all said.
