AC-DC’S YOUNG VERY ILL In 1980 I spin AC/DC’s tunes on Album Rock KILT FM. But in 1981 a change is in Houston, TX airwaves when I spin John Anderson’s neat tune 1959 on New Country KILT FM. British Rock band AC/DC’s lineup includes Brian Johnson, Malcolm Young, Phil Rudd, Angus Young and Cliff Williams. In April 2014, 61-year-old guitarist Malcolm Young leaves because of his health. On Wednesday, September 24, 2014 AC/DC issues a statement on its website: Unfortunately, due to the nature of Malcolm’s condition, he will not be returning to the band. Young suffers from a pronounced case of dementia. His wife moves him to a nursing home in Sydney. Young is with AC/DC for 40 years. On December 2, 2014 AC/DC releases its new album Rock or Bust.

COUNTRY TAKES OVER THE ROCK IN LAS CRUCES KXPZ FM (The Rocket 99.5) Las Cruces, NM APD/MD Lyndsey Kalson explains its flip to Country: Technically, Rock stations have never been money makers. We had the most fun, but didn’t make the most money. Classic Rock does all right, but listeners want the new Rock. KXPZ FM moves its Active Rock programming online on Tuesday, September 2, 2014. The Las Cruces Sun-News reports that KXPZ FM’s existing staff will remain but be online only at www.TheRocketOnline.com/. KXPZ FM launches Country Zia Country 99.5 up against Adams Radio Group’s KGRT FM (Your Country 103.9). The Zia name comes from the Native American tribe whose Sun symbol is on the New Mexico state flag.
HOW IS YOUR COMMUTE THIS MORNING? If you are NBC TV’s Today host like Matt Lauer you have a joyful private helicopter ride back and forth to work. A source informs the Post: NBC News chiefs want to do everything to keep Matt happy. They believe Today has turned a corner and he is the key to its continuing success. They agreed to pay for his helicopter flights to the Hamptons and back, so he can spend more time with his family. Each morning when you’re stuck in back-to-back traffic on the freeway, how’s about a private helicopter lift you out of that mire for a nice speedy journey to work and back home?

TRIVIA ANSWER: In 1967, a Jazz oriented Rock band The Big Thing forms in Chicago, IL. Their first album lists them as Chicago Transit Authority but after the city of Chicago threatens to sue them, Chicago Transit Authority shortens its name to just Chicago. After Chicago scores four Top 10 hit singles, their first half million selling single is Saturday in the Park (#3-1972). Although Chicago sells millions of record albums they only have three #1 singles: If You Leave Me Now (1976), Hard to Say I’m Sorry (1982) and Look Away (1988).
TONY WILLIAMS [KRLD-1080] (Dallas-Richardson, TX) Subject: Max Morgan. ‘In a separate incident on Wednesday, September 17, 2014 KDFW TV sports anchor Max Morgan, 59, enters Methodist Richardson Medical Center with congestive heart failure.’ Jim, I’m sure you already know that Max died. He brought presence, friendliness, and enthusiasm to his sports reports. Tony
JOHN STEINBECK (February 27, 1902 – December 20, 1968) It’s so much darker when a light goes out than it would have been if it had never shone.
