Radio stations that love U2

hi U2 fans having listened to the U2 marathon on WBWC in the past days, i'm wondering, does anyone know of any other radio stations that i can listen online that play U2 songs often? because it was really sweet to have multiple U2 surprises in one day and also to know that there are lots of lots of other U2 fans on earth freaking out at the same time

thank you in advance

You wont be hearing songs like that on the radio, that was a college radio station which isnt commercial at all, plus the person that had the collection for the marathon probably had one of the most complete collections that I ever saw. It was amazing to hear those tracks but we will probably have to wait till next year to hear that again.

There is many stations around that play the normal U2 staples though you just have to look for them probably your best bet would be to search through online radio stations for U2 content I would say.

Every year on St. Patrick's Day, either 92.5 or 92.9 in Boston plays U2 all day.
Sorry, I forget which of the two it is.

yeah it would have been really great to listen to the whole marathon but in reality i was able to listen to it for about a mere hour total but just hearing any song from the released albums would be great also, so i'm going in search for a good online radio station thanks for your response

92.9 WBOS here in Boston LOVES U2. Generally radio stations around here play a lot of U2--it varies from station to station what they'll play, i.e. 101.7 plays Bullet and Beautiful Day all the time, 100.7 plays COBL, some older stuff, but 92.9 plays pretty much everything. I heard The Fly a couple days ago. Kiss will play the newer hits.

93.1 WXRT in Chicago loves U2. They've been playing them since '81. A few of the DJ's there interviewed them back in the day too.

http://u2_interviews.tripod.com/id12.html

Bobby Skafish is the DJ in question.

Also this - http://wxrt.com/program/detail/tfbtm/ - gives you a good insight on when U2 visited the Chicago Peace Museum.

I think WTMX in Chicago likes u2 as well...101.9

and 104.3 Jack FM in Chicago plays U2 a couple times a day...but it's almost always New Years Day, Pride, or Sunday Bloody Sunday.

Too true! I do love Virgin radio though. They play a fair bit of U2 on there too.

I've heard U2's cover of Everlasting Love no less than 3 times in the last month on WFNX in Boston...that's pretty random
92.9 plays a lot of U2, but WBCN is supposedly the first (or one of the first) stations to have played U2 in America.

it's sooo cool, every time i just randomly turn on Star, the second song is almost always a U2 song!

Pfft. Radio stations where I am seem to forget that U2 exists and get stuck on a Kelly Clarkson loop.
