Here in the DC area the two rock stations I listen to (WHFS and DC101) play a
decent amount of U2, but mainly JT and earlier. AB songs get some airplay,
Zooropa none, and Pop --> Staring at the Sun. In my experience, anyway. "Hold
Me, Thrill Me..." is played too.

>>Hard to belive but when U2 kicked of their tour
here The EDGE played 24 straight hours of U2 and for 2 weeks befor and
after they had "U2 at 2" and they played 2 U2 songs in a row!<<

Well, a station called "The EDGE" *should* kiss their butts! ;-)

>>Any suggestions? I've tried their request lines and Emailing them, but
nothing works. Aside frome the lack of U2 content here in the Silver
State, alot of what gets played is redundent and overplayed.<<

Amen to that! :-P Unfortunately, it's you versus the faceless corporate
masters of these (and many other) stations. :-( "The radio plays what they
want you to hear, tell me it's cool, I just don't believe it..." (Reel Big
Fish -- I think...)
