TOMORROW NIGHT ON THE CATHOLIC CHANNEL: NO EXPIRATION TALKS U2

Tomorrow night on SIRIUS|XM's
Catholic Channel, I'll be discussing the music of U2. I'll heavily reference the edition of the 33 1/3 book series about Achtung Baby - which imagines that the album is about Adam and Eve being thrown out of Eden into the modern world. It is an incredibly interesting and creative way to interpret the album - one of my favorites of all time. It actually made me like the album even more. I'll also, no doubt, be influenced by my good friend Benjamin Wagner's recent review on his blog, which pretty much says it all. That's where I stole this picture from! Ben is a great artist in his own right, and a documentarian currently working on a Mister Rogers doc that I can't wait to see.

So...why didn't the catholic channel get the author of the Achtung Baby book on to speak?

The name of the author of the book is Stephen Catanzarite, and in fact, he spoke on the Catholic Channel when the book came out, which was earlier in 2009. Although I lent the book to Father Dave, and I imagine that when he reads it, he may invite him to come on the show.
