A newer site worth checking out is U2Source.com, whose one mission is to make audio of U2 interviews available. The first one I happened to load up was from 1985, done by Mary Turner, whose bright and cheery intro to the band hit all those notes U2 descriptions used to hit in the 80s. Her tone was already making me smile wryly ("Four musicians with more than cars, guitars, and girls on their minds!") before she made it crystal clear that this was 1985 (and made me laugh out loud) by adding, "Plus, three-quarters of the band are Evangelical Christians!" Somehow I don't think that kind of language has been on the bio handout for radio interviewers in awhile.
