Cleveland College Radio Station Announces The U2002 Marathon
5.8.02 - WBWC
PRESS RELEASE

WBWC 88.3 FM The Sting, the radio voice of Baldwin-Wallace College, in Cleveland, Ohio, announces its long-running summer marathon series. Irish rockers U2 get the marathon treatment on Thursday, May 30, 2002, with "U2002."

Todd Richards and Mary Cipriani -- longtime college DJs and U2 fans -- will be co-hosting this special broadcast beginning at 7:00 a.m., and running continuously through 1:00 a.m. the following day.

Richards is an alumni of Baldwin-Wallace, and Cipriani is an '83 alumni of John Carroll University's WJCU 88.7FM.

The WBWC "Beautiful Day 2001" U2 marathon featured interviews with U2 staffers Willie Williams and Joe O'Herlihy, and was reported in a story at U2's official web site (http://www.u2.com/homepage/news200701.html).

"It was such an incredible honor to be featured on U2's web site last year," says Richards. "It doesn't get much better for a fan than that!"

WBWC streams audio, and listeners around the world may listen in at http://homepages.bw.edu/~wbwc/ram/wbwc.ram . All WBWC.com audio requires RealPlayer 8 or RealOne, which may be downloaded from http://www.real.com/player/.

Fans may participate by requesting their favorite U2 track via email to Richards or Cipriani.

Mary Cipriani ciprianim@cs.com

"We have an extensive U2 collection available at the campus station, so no request for an import, b-side, remix, or soundtrack is too obscure for us to play," says Cipriani. "Fans may specify the hour (EST) in which they'd like to hear the song. We'll do our best to accommodate all the requests from the emails we receive in advance."

Listeners also may call in on the studio request line at 440-826-2187 on the day of the marathon.

"In 2001, we received dozens of emails from around the world," says Cipriani. "We were amazed by the response of U2 fans listening in."

WBWC is licensed as non-commercial, educational, FM radio station to Baldwin-Wallace College under the authority of the Federal Communications Commission. In 1958, WBWC signed on as the first totally student funded and operated radio station in the United States. WBWC began its popular summer marathon series more than 20 years ago, featuring one artist's music all day every Thursday throughout the summer.

Other marathons planned for this summer include Simple Minds, Steely Dan, Genesis, Pearl Jam, The Beatles, Beach Boys, and Joe Jackson.

When I click on the link to the feed it opens Windows Media Player and then an error message pops up: "Cannot open. Please verify that the path and filename are correct and try again." Do I just need to keep trying until I can get "in?"

I think you need to use RealPlayer. Open up RP, and put http://homepages.bw.edu/~wbwc/ram/wbwc.ram in the location field.

Oh, they are playing Last Night on Earth, I think from Meximofo!
