Hello Everyone and thanks again for all your lovely emails and tweets and phone calls during our marathon on Thursday.  We really appreciate all of your enthusiasm and support.  


We don't use automation during the marathons and we don't pre-program the broadcast so it's 100% live and we try our best to respond real time to all the request submissions made by listeners.  So please forgive us if we stumbled on a release date etc or didn’t get to your request/dedication.  I had planned to tweet the playlist during the broadcast but I could only juggle so many tasks at once so something had to give.


Back in the day, I used to love making mix tapes for my friends, so I like to think of the marathon as my annual mix-tape day.  I hope that all of you heard something that you’ve never heard before.  I highly recommend the fabulous discography at u2wanderer.org for details on the rare tracks and where they can be found – we literally couldn’t do our marathon without it.  Many of the tracks we played appear in multiple formats/sources – for example it was originally the b-side to a import single and also now appears on a compilation album.


We are planning to archive the interview with Willie Williams on the WBWC.com website.  We'll send out an update once it’s available for replay.  


Did you spot yourselves on our cool new map widget?  http://twitpic.com/1odprs

We tallied a peak of 3435 listeners online from 56 countries!  AMAZING!  http://twitpic.com/1odpa1


Todd & I would also like to thank the folks at U2.Com for the news link and flattering comments.  It’s so nice to be called ‘encyclopaedic’ instead of ‘obsessive compulsive’ - hahah! We’d also like to say thanks again to Willie Williams - he was such an awesome & delightful interview guest.  ....maybe we shouldn't have interrupted him when he started to give us Bono's cell phone number!  Of course the second he hung up (after talking to him for 40+ minutes) I thought Doh!  I can't believe I forgot to ask him X... oh well...


And I’d like to send a big personal thanks to Emerson Emser who sat in as my board operator when Todd had to go into work.  Be sure to tune into Double E's Green Day marathon in two weeks - and yes, he promises that he’ll play The Saints Are Coming several times...  


We’re really lucky in Cleveland to have such a great college radio community full of committed long time volunteers who love radio.  Join us again for our regular programming and I also encourage you to tune in to the online streams from our friends at:

Cleveland State University http://www.wcsb.org/

John Carroll University http://www.wjcu.org/

Case Western Reserve University http://www.wruw.org/
