I live in Southeastern Virginia, and 94.9 probably plays the most U2. They play Stuck nonstop, Beautiful Day, One, With or Without You, and Streets all the time. 93.7 plays Walk On a lot and even the acoustic Stuck (!) a good amount. Stangely enough, the nu metal station, 96 X, plays Pride and Sunday Bloody Sunday all the time. So I have a strong dose of U2 on the radio around here!

In Dallas we used to have Merge 93.3. They played Bad, In God's Country, SBS pretty regularly. They broadcast the Irving Plaza Concert and the Boston Concert. They even played ATYCLB straight through when it came out, and at the end of the year when its listeners voted it the best album. They even had a morning DJ who was a board certified U2 fanatic and Bono stalker.

And they are NO MORE! Waahh. Format change two weeks ago to Classic Rock. It really really sucks. I really really miss this station. I have no idea what to listen to anymore.

there aren't really any U2 friendly stations in pittsburgh. actually, pittsburgh radio suck in general. i guess the closest would be 102.5 WDVE, they play classic rock. but usually not U2.

Everyday can be a beautiful day. Don't let it get away.

We have a few in Boston:

WBCN, 104.1...when they aren't yapping away (they carry Howard Stern, Opie and Anthony, and they broadcast all Patriots games) they play a wide range of U2 stuff (heard Lemon on there just a few weeks ago). They are a rock/alternative station.

WZLX, 100.7 plays alot of U2 right through the Rattle and Hum era. They are a classic rock station. Carter Allen works there. (He wrote a book about U2 and I think he's on the Boston DVD introducing the band).

WBOS, 92.9 plays a wide range of U2. They'll pull out something you may not have heard in a while and put it out there. I don't know what genre they are.

WBMX, 98.5 will play U2 when they have a new single out or when they are coming to town. They are more of a pop/top 40 station.

That's the U2 low-down in my town!

There is a college station in my area (Northwest Iowa) that plays a LOT of U2 songs that most people wouldn't know. I've heard them play Discoteque, Zoo Station, Two Hearts Beat as One, Unforgettable Fire, Stories for Boys, Peace on Earth (before 9/11) and of course all of the bigger singles. Rarely do I listen to that station and not catch a U2 song!

But then again, I suppose with a name like KBVU 97.5 "The Edge", they are obligated to play a lot of U2.

Not really...96.3 is the closest we have, and they're starting to play crap Top 40 lately.

This is why I would be lost without my cds.

The radio stations around here aren't that great about playing U2's newer stuff. The classic rock station plays good stuff though like "Sunday Bloody Sunday", "New Year's Day", "Bullet the Blue Sky", and "In God's Country", etc.

In Los Angeles there is the old standby KROQ (Bono even thanked them onstage last November for being one of the first US stations to play U2)
Star 98.7 plays a LOT of U2 throughout the day
I've also heard some of the 80's stuff on the classic rock station Arrow 93

ďThis is when the band became Depeche Mode!Ē Ė Steve Lillywhite plays some tracks that didnít make it to the final cut of WTSHNN.

Hmm, 101.9 WTMX the Mix in Chicago plays a lot, so does 94.7 the Zone (I saw the Zone at a U2 concert, so I think they'd play it a lot.)

U2-friendly radio stations

seeing as how my UserName has its roots in a local radio station...I wanted to pose this question (and I'm sure this has been discussed, but formats change daily):

What is the U2-Friendly Radio station in your area?

In Minneapolis-Saint Paul, we have Cities 97 that plays U2 just about every two and seems to have U2 in their news segment weekly.

A new format was announced today (alternative) called Drive 105 (which was Rev 105, then Zone 105 <zonelistener>, then a 70's station - V105...and today Drive 105). Drive 105 is billing itself with U2!

We also have four or five other stations that occasionally play U2.

I love my Cities 97!

And they seem to love me too...as they play plenty of U2.

Rarely does a day go by when I don't hear IALW on that station.

Hmmmm. In Toronto we have 104.5 CHUM FM which plays a bit. And the MIX 99.9 plays them as well. Mostly WOWY during the 'off' season but lately I've heard Stuck, BD, One, Kite, Walk On...

Hey, another Twin Citian! Yes, Cities 97 seems to play a U2 song at least once an hour! KQ plays U2 one in a while.

In Western Massachusetts.... it seems like a rare occasion when the stattions play U2 but they play them a lot more than I realized

96.5 WTIC More adult top 40, so they play One, Stuck, Beautiful Day, but thatís about it

100.9 WRNX they play a lot of U2, but especially Sweetest thing and In Godís Country, which Iíve never heard anywhere else

102.1 WAQY Classic rock, so usually SBS, New Yearís Day, Pride, and Joshua Tree

104.1 WMRQ (Dee Snider Radio haha) Modern rock, so usually more Achtung Baby like WGRYWH or One, Beautiful Day, and they did play Elevation and Walk On

But in traveling along the East Coast, I think the Boston area is the best for U2 music, and maybe Richmond, Va. in second.
