U2 on WXRT Chicago's Friday Feature

This coming Friday, the 24th, WXRT will be featuring U2 all day. This generally means 3-4 (maybe more) U2 songs an hour. They'll certainly be playing 'Vertigo'. They even stated they might be playing it as early as Thursday.

For those of you outside of Chicago, you can listen online at www.wxrt.com.

Thanks john1800! I think you are right. My dad lives in Pensacola (which is trashed right now. F***in Ivan!). I seem to remember a TK station.

I need get my lazy butt in gear and go see what the radio stations are doing around here, if anything.

If they aren't doing anything, I guess I'm going to be listening online. Thanks, Edgette!

You're welcome everyone. XRT does this with U2 quite often and it's really fun. They play the hits and the rare stuff. They play a lot of rare stuff anyway, for radio I mean. I heard 'Dancing Barefoot' on there just last week.

I bet XRT's featuring U2 this Friday (their Friday Feature) because of the new single coming out. They're a great U2 station -- I remember once XRT did a special feature all because it was Bono's birthday!

That was really cool!

XRT, easily the best radio station in Chicago. I figured they'd be playing the new single.

I e-mailed them and asked if they were doing a Friday feature for the new song and they never got back to me. Then I saw it posted on their site that they were.

And I remember that! They really did a nice job for his birthday.

You should come out to the Cubby Bear in Wrigleyville this Friday to see Elevation. It's going to be a big bash for the new single. It'll be fun!

XRT is brilliant! I also live in Chicago but I go to school in Champaign (out of Chicago radio range). Looks like I'll be listening to it on the net like everyone else...
