|canadanne||11:46 pm - U2 coming up on Pop Gold|
Just been watching ITV's new series 'Pop Gold' (their version of Top Of The Pops 2), which runs for 8 weeks on Wednesday evenings. There was a clip of Bono in the preview montage (maybe War era?), so U2 must be appearing at some point, though I'm not sure which episode - next week's is an '80s special and the week after is guitar heroes, both of which are a possible fit for them!

|canadanne||11:44 pm - Latest TV & radio appearances|
If you missed U2 on The Graham Norton Show this evening, it's repeated on Monday night / early Tuesday morning from 00:20am to 01:05am. It's also up on iPlayer.
The Absolute Radio interview with Bono & Edge was (partially) broadcast this morning, and can be heard in this podcast at the 36 minute mark. It's well worth a listen, very funny and almost completely free of Bono's usual repetitive soundbites (though he does try to sneak in the milk bottle analogy again). There's meant to be a half-hour recording of the full interview coming soon, but I haven't seen it anywhere yet.
Yesterday, Bono & Edge were also interviewed by Lauren Laverne on BBC 6 Music, which you can listen to here.
One more appearance has been announced - Zane Lowe will be talking to the band on his Radio 1 show (7-9pm) on Monday evening. Don't forget they are also playing Later With Jools Holland next week! Anyone else struggling to keep up with all this?!
