(03-11-2008) Bono joins Colm and Jim-Jim on air - RTE.ie*

Bono joins Colm and Jim-Jim on air

Bono was a surprise caller to RTÉ 2fm's 'The Colm and Jim-Jim Breakfast Show' this morning. Listen to show here [visit the story's website below for link].

During the show presenters Colm and Jim-Jim had joked that Bono was not able to hit the notes any more, following a discussion with Clannad singer Moya Brennan about whether the U2 frontman could perform 'In a Lifetime' with the band.

Bono then rang the duo live on air and said that he had lost none of his vocal abilities and that their show was the programme of choice in his car on the school run.

The singer was then asked whether he would sing at Jim-Jim's wedding, and he hinted that he might.

Bono also sang two of Colm and Jim-Jim's jingles live on air.

Afterwards, Jim-Jim said: "Sharon and I hadn't even thought of a wedding band for our big day but if Bono and the lads are free then I'm up for it!"

That's cute. I love the spontaneity of the call. Too bad the sound feed doesn't work tho.

Karen, if you check out the thread in EYKIW, you can find several ways to listen to the conversation.

I also posted a new article about this conversation in that thread too.

I was in Dublin Recently and I Can Relate to Bono Calling in, That
Town is amazing , You Can All of a sudden Be Somewhere and
Its Just like the Leprechans Brought you there, Its So Cool

Its Really Funny !

Bono , Doesnt Have to worry about his Voice , It will Get better
like the Fine Wine.
