Allan will be sharing his thoughts and will be rebroadcasting his 2nd interview with Dave, (the first recorded face to face in his office. "My first interview with him was actually by phone just two weeks after his morning show was cancelled in 1980. Dave laid low and said nothing to the press during the media frenzy. After a couple of weeks of rest at home in California, Dave granted Allan his first and only interview about the cancellation. "He heard about my radio petition to stop NBC from going through with the cancellation. The interview airing his week, took place 10 years later at the peak of Late Night's popularity on NBC. Late Night regulars Paul Shaffer, Chris Elliott Calvert Deforest (Larry Bud Melman) became regulars on the Allan Handelman Show. http://www.cbs.com/shows/late_show/. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uHJcZJasyIU

Her new book is titled, AC/DC FAQ: All That's Left to Know About the World's True Rock 'n' Roll Band. AC/DC FAQ spans AC/DC's 40-year career, starting from the band's inception in 1973. This book covers everything from their early days in Australia to their first tour of England and the United States. It also includes personal experiences, stories, conversations, and interviews by author Susan Masino, who has known the band since 1977.

Featuring 37 chapters, AC/DC FAQ chronicles the personal history of each of the band members, all their albums, tours, and various anecdotes. Rebounding from the tragic loss of their singer Bon Scott in 1980, AC/DC hired Brian Johnson and went on to record Back in Black, which is now one of the top five biggest-selling albums in music history. Taking a seven-year break after their album Stiff Upper Lip, the band came back in the fall of 2008 with a new album, Black Ice, and a tour that ran from 2008 through the summer of 2010. Once again breaking records, AC/DC saw the Black Ice Tour become the second-highest-grossing tour in history. True rockers from the very beginning, AC/DC will continue to be heralded as one of the greatest rock and roll bands of all time.

Click to view on Amazon.comBUZZ ALDRIN: Best known for his Apollo 11 moonwalk talks to Allan and opens up about the UFO he saw during that Apollo Moon landing. His new book, MISSION TO MARS: My Vision for Space Exploration, where he lays out his goals for the space program and how he believes we can get humans to Mars by the 2030s.

The Space Shuttle program may have ended, but there is big buzz surround space exploration especially with the announcement of Scott Kelly, America's first astronaut to spend an entire year aboard the International Space Station.  Buzz Aldrin knows all about space exploration first hand as a NASA astronaut and Apollo 11 moonwalker.

In the paperback release of his MISSION TO MARS: My Vision for Space Exploration, Buzz Aldrin lays out his goals for the space program, while spotlighting some of the most important issues facing our nation's space program today.  Aldrin argues passionately for pushing our boundaries of knowledge and exploration of our solar system and presents his "unified space vision." He discusses the history of space flight, including a reflective, not nostalgic, look at the people, technologies and steps that were taken to accomplish America's Apollo moon landings, and plots a course of future exploration.

Among the things we'll talk about:

  • The blossoming of space tourism, and why public space travel by private citizens is critical as it makes space more familiar.
  • Why a second race to the moon is a dead end and a waste of precious resources.
  • Why there is high value on the political and collaborative front by letting partners such as China and India tie into the International Space Station.
  • Apollo was a get-there-in-a-hurry, straightforward, space-race strategy. Today, Aldrin calls for a unified international effort to explore and utilize the moon, a partnership that involves commercial enterprise and other nationwide building upon the Apollo mission.

Buzz Aldrin, best known for his Apollo 11 moonwalk, holds a doctoral degree in astronautics and, at the age of 83, continues to wield influence as an international advocate of space science and planetary exploration. He has written three nonfiction books, two science fact/fiction novels and two children's books.  Co-author Leonard David is a space journalist, who has reported on space activities for some 45 years. He is the 2010 winner of the prestigious National Space Club Press Award. Currently, David is SPACE.com's Space Insider Columnist as well as a correspondent for Space News newspaper and a contributing writer for the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics Aerospace America magazine.

Allan and David LettermanDAVID LETTERMAN:  It's hard to believe that David Letterman will be off late night TV in just two weeks. Allan will be sharing his thoughts and rebroadcasting his 2nd interview with Dave, (the first recorded face to face in his office. "My first interview with him was actually by phone just two weeks after his morning show was cancelled in 1980.

Dave laid low and said nothing to the press during the media frenzy. After a couple of weeks of rest at home in California, Dave granted Allan his first and only interview about the cancellation.

Late Night regulars Paul Shaffer, Chris Elliott Calvert Deforest (Larry Bud Melman) became regulars on the Allan Handelman Show.

The following is a portion of Dave's Bio from IMDb.

NBC saw great potential in the young irreverent comedian, so they gave Letterman his own daytime talk show, The David Letterman Show (1980), which wasa disaster and aired for only a few months. At about this time, Tom Snyder was having problems with his late-night show, Tomorrow Coast to Coast (1973), which aired after the "Tonight Show." His problems were mostly with his co-host, Rona Barrett, and Snyder was forced off air in late 1981. Letterman, who was still permanent co-host of the "Tonight Show," took over the post-Carson slot with Late Night with David Letterman (1982).
