"Zooropa" on the radio!

Holy mother. I just turned the radio on (WFNX, Boston), and "Zooropa" is playing! Yeah, the song! And to make things even more bizarre, it's skipping horribly...

This is the strangest thing that's ever happened.

I heard zooropa on the radio once, and i couldn't figure out what it was at first because i wouldn't expect to hear something like that on the radio, it was weird, but in a good way.

I remember when the album came out, they played 'Zooropa' a LOT here in BC. I actually thought it was the second single, they played it so much.

Man! I just turned it on again, and "Gloria" started up! WFNX is a better station than I'd previously assumed...

'your blue room' was on the radio once. it was skipping terribly. there was dead air. there was an explaination of what went wrong. there was a non-skipping version of the song.

aaahhh college radio dj-ing...

(good thing i had both the best of b-sides and passengers with me )

It was a promo single, which might explain this. Maybe the DJ accidentally mistook it for "Bland Nu-Metal Flavor of the Week c/w Rock Classic Completely Killed and Gutted By Overexposure."

Back in 93 when Zooropa was release, KROQ the radion station in Los Angeles played the whole album, that was sweet.
How I miss the glory days of KROQ.

If I heard Zooropa on a local radio station here I'd be in shock. I don't think people around here have ever *heard* of that song or album.
