Then, an exclusive interview with Bono, the lead singer of U2, who is also a leading voice fighting poverty in Africa. Bono — the co-founder of DATA (Debt, AIDS, Trade, Africa) — will make his first appearance on "Meet the Press" to discuss the global fight against poverty and the July 2 "Live 8" series of concerts — which seek to encourage the G8 nations to provide the world's poorest nations with complete debt cancellation, increased aid and more trade.

"Meet the Press" is regularly seen from 9-10 a.m. ET, except in Washington D.C. and New York City where the broadcast is seen from 10:30-11:30 a.m ET. Please check local listings or the "Meet the Press" Web site for airtimes in your area.

Also, in case you miss it, the episode will be repeated on MSNBC at 10 p.m. ET tonight, and again at midnight.

As a hairy person, yes.

Well. Bono was quite well-spoken and knowledgable and informed on Meet the Press. I hope a lot of people will be able to see him doing things like that so they'll realize that he is really commited to this and is talking about practical things that can be done, I think not everyone realizes that.

God, I love him.

Song Of The Day

Today's Selection is...

“Desire” from Rattle And Hum.

A short, fun gem of a song. Out-of-synch clapping, Bono-wailing, Bono’s harmonica-playing; this song’s got it all. Edge, Adam, Larry and Bono are all playing/singing their asses off during this song.

Song of the Day

“Wire” from The Unforgettable Fire

Wonderful song; very 80’s-sounding. I love Bono’s lyrics, and there’s Edge guitar going off in the background again. GREAT bassline by Adam Clayton.
