Let's see how many terrestrial and satellite radio stations are creative enough this morning to play Bono, the Edge, Brian Eno, and Luciano Pavarotti performing "Miss Sarajevo."
Any contemporary station could find a way to play it. Wonder if any of them will? My guess is slim to none.
When I was at the Three Tenors concert a few years back I was surprised to see the large number of young to early middle-age people in attendance. The same ones you'd see at a U2 concert.
It's the perfect tribute to Pavarotti for most contemporary radio stations. But does it test?
