Hello Hello!!

WSOU, 89.5 FM S. Orange, NJ @ 10:52 pm

I'm currently feelin: hyper hyper

I just wanted to let all my fellow U2 fans know they have reason to be proud of me.

I cohost an Alternative Rock/Singer-Songwriter specialty show on WSOU, Seton Hall University's radio station. Our normal format is "Modern Eclectic Rock" (post-hardcore, emo, screamo, punk, indie, for the most part), but our show, The Campus Buzz, is all programmed by my friends (and co-hosts) Scottie P, "Peppermint Patty" and I (MK). Well, tonight, it was all U2.

Our '80s and '90s Retro Hour from 8 to 9 went like this:
1) "The Electric Co." (Boy)
2) "Gloria" (October)
3) "The Refugee" (War)
4) "A Sort of Homecoming" (The Unforgettable Fire)
5) "Trip Through Your Wires" (The Joshua Tree)
6) "God, Pt. 2" (Rattle & Hum)
7) "All I Want Is You" (Rattle & Hum) -- requested by Lena and Monica
8) "Trying To Throw Your Arms Around The World" (Achtung Baby)
9) "Lemon" (Zooropa) -- requested by my brother Din, who called up and we put him on the air. He subsequently said happy birthday to my mom and immitated Bono's falsetto on "Lemon", much to the delight and amusement of everyone in the studio.
10) "Mofo" (Pop)
11) "In A Little While" (All That You Can't Leave Behind)

Then, at 9:00 for New Music At Nine, we played the entire new U2 album without breaking in once. Plus, as an added bonus, we also played "Neon Lights" before signing off. It was really one of the most fun DJing experiences (and just general radio experiences) I've ever had.

Wow. That's cool! I've always wanted to DJ at a local station. A friend of mine is a DJ at a rock station in TN; I'm jealous, lol.

If you ever get the chance to, do it. DJing, especially when you get to play music you really, truly love, is one of the most fun and wonderful experiences. I'm just sad that I only get to work at WSOU for less than a year more, seeing as I graduate in May and can only work there until the end of next summer.

But still...doing this whole U2 night was just amazing. :D

I sure hope I get a chance to someday. I'm planning on having some job in the music industry, and DJing, even though I'm pretty sure it wouldn't pay much, would be satisfactory to me. I would love to DJ at a radio station as a profession someday.

Wow, I was never used to hearing SOU play U2, mostly death metal and prog metal and all other sorts (this was about 4 years ago, though). Am from NYC, by the way. *thumbs up* Pirate Radio!

Oh, rock on! You should listen to us! Sundays 8-10 for our show.

Regular rotation is much less heavy than it used to be. We changed format in 2002, and it's a lot of My Chemical Romance, Thursday, Bad Religion, Thrice, Fugazi, etc.

Wow, it's been awhile. Since then, I've been in college in Chicago, but I come home occasionally and I make sure to listen. I'll be coming back the week of Christmas, although I don't think the station will be on the air at that time, right? =(

Oh, we'll be on. We broadcast 24/7/365. I mean, everyone tries to get out of Christmas DJing, but we'll be on the air. :)
