U2: Achtung Baby

From Joyride Media | 59:00

Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen, Jr look back on the year they almost broke up but decided put out a little album called "Achtung Baby" instead.

Achtung_small It’s not easy for any successful band to re-invent themselves. In the early 1990s, U2 learned this the hard way, when their attempts to follow up the anthemic rock of The Joshua Tree and the blues-tinged Rattle & Hum with something totally different.  The process nearly broke up the band, but also took them where they needed to be to reconstruct the band piece by piece, and create music like they've never made before.  "What we did," says U2 front-man Bono,  "was we broke up that band and formed another one, but with the same people…I think we all recognize that making Achtung Baby was the reason we’re still here now."

In this one-hour special, comments by all four U2 members (Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen, Jr) tell the story of their November 1991 release, Achtung Baby,  its songs like "Mysterious Ways," "One," "Even Better than the Real Thing" and the subsequent tours that redefined both how U2 would be perceived by the world and themselves.  These rare, insightful interviews are provided by filmmaker Davis Guggenheim (It Might Get Loud, An Inconvenient Truth), from the footage of his acclaimed 2011 documentary, U2 From the Sky Down.

Music heard throughout the program include the classic album tracks and rare or previously unreleased outtakes and covers compiled for the Achtung Baby: Deluxe Edition.  Detailed cue sheet, online report form and other updates are online at http://radiosho.ws/u2

In this new one-hour radio special , acclaimed funnymen Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant (Reno 911) get serious with America to present the real truth about "WEIRD AL" YANKOVIC that the mainstream media doesn't want you to hear.

Where was he really born? What's behind his secret plot to parody every pop song ever written?  How can Yankovic stooges like his longtime bandmates and Dr Demento continue to support his pro-Polka agenda that indoctrinates our children to learn the accordion or worse...the tuba?
 
Prepare yourself for the truth from the man himself, as well as the people who know him best - Dr. Demento, bandmates Jon "Bermuda" Schwartz, Jim West and Ruben Valtierra.
