Rock Radio bans AC/DC

A presenter on 96.3 Rock Radio has banned all songs by AC/DC until further notice, after the group failed to include Scotland on their world tour.

David "The Captain" Grant now refuses to play any songs from the rock legends on his afternoon drivetime show.

He said: "I couldn't believe it when I saw Scotland was to be missed out of the group's touring dates. Fans are contacting the show in their hundreds and to disappoint loyal, lifelong supporters like this is just unacceptable.

"I will not be playing another AC/DC song on my show for a long time to come, or until the band change their mind on coming to Scotland as part of the tour."

Rock Radio broadcasts from GMG's Glasgow headquarters in Baillieston, and serves Paisley and Renfrewshire. It shares a building with Smooth Radio and Real Radio.

Ciaran O'Toole, AC/DC fan and station manager said: "I think what the Captain has done is absolutely right. We, as a Scottish Rock Radio station, need to support the fans.
