AC/DC Radio Program Scheduled For BBC World Service

On Monday, May 24, BBC World Service will be airing a special show dedicated to AC/DC. With rare interviews from their legendary frontman Bon Scott, who died in 1980, BBC will trace the group's early years, from playing wild bars round Australia, on to conquering the world with "Highway To Hell". The program will be repeated 4 times throughout the day (9:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. in U.K.). The program will also be on demand online for a week (in the music feature section on the World Service web site). More details are available at this location.

In other news, former AC/DC singer Dave Evans has been busy recording a new album in Newcastle, Australia. Dave is joined on the album by former RABBIT bandmembers Mark Tinson and David Hinds. The rest of the group are said to be "some of Newcastle's finest players" — Steve "Mac" McLennan on drums, Trevor Dare on guitar, and Justin "Ngariki" Bolth on bass and Simon Croft guitar. A single to be released is called "Sinner'.
