WSOU, 89.5 FM S. Orange, NJ

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.
