On Thursday afternoon, August 28th Ken Anderson of 102 FM The Fox locked the door of the Fox Studios and went where no radio announcer in North Bay had ever gone before.
Anderson loved the new AC/DC track "Rock and Roll Train" so much he decided to debut it on the All Request Drive at 5, and then play it over and over again for about 45 minutes.
With former North Bay Centennial and former NHL & AHL enforcer Steve McLaren standing guard at the door, Anderson took the radio station hostage, playing the new AC/DC track eight straight times. With calls of support from the AC/DC faithful and also a handful of complaints about his stunt from some Fox listeners, Anderson cranked it up nonetheless and made a little North Bay radio history. Eight years since the last AC/DC album translated into eight consecutive spins on the Fox.
