These guys cover everything U2. From "Sports" by Huey Lewis to other stuff- it's all here. And it's all U2!
Most information about U2 ever.
I’ve been trying to find information about the obscure band U2 for a long time. Super glad this podcast is available. Provides all the information you need, like band member names.
I've noticed that lately they've been listening to (and talking about) a lot of songs by Bruce Springsteen. They don't cover The E(dible) Street Band members' names at the start of each episode so I feel a bit lost at times, but the show as a whole is still above average. Overall, I give it a C+.
