It’s timely to revisit the hard-rock institution AC/DC this week given the recent shock announcement of ‘new guy’ singer Brian Johnson being sidelined with a hearing issue and Axl Rose taking on vocal duties for the remainder of the ‘Rock or Bust Tour’. This follows the sad departure of Malcolm Young following his diagnosis of early on-set dementia. You’ll hear a couple of Bon Scott era classics and a mid-80s Brian Johnson era single.

We’re pleased to introduce some new artists this week including Australian shoe-gaze band Bloodhounds On My Trail and The Response, duo from New Zealand who have recently relocated to Vancouver, making them ideal for this show! You’ll also hear a couple of tracks from innovative BC electronica artist Blocktreat who we will be interviewing for an upcoming show.
