04:21 pm - U2 album polls by Dermot O'Leary
Every Saturday on Dermot O'Leary's Radio 2 show, he's talking about the recording of one of U2's albums, and playing the most popular track as voted for by listeners. :) The songs chosen so far have been I Will Follow, Gloria, New Year's Day and Pride. Will be interesting to see what gets picked for each of the other albums! This should keep them going all the way to Christmas. A nice opportunity to give some of their lesser-known stuff a bit of airplay!

EDIT: I'm not sure if they continued taking listener requests, but they subsequently played Where The Streets Have No Name, All I Want Is You, Mysterious Ways, Stay (Faraway, So Close!), Last Night On Earth, Elevation, Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own, Get On Your Boots and The Miracle (Of Joey Ramone).

I just found out about the BBC4 documentary Music Moguls: Masters of Pop which aired a couple of weeks ago. If you skip to the 47 minute mark, there's a 3½ minute discussion of U2's success, including concert footage from various eras and an interview with Paul McGuinness.
