'Austin City Limits' music show honored by hall of fame

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum says it's designating the Austin City Limits music television show as a historic rock and roll site.

Terry Stewart, president and CEO of the rock hall of fame in Cleveland, made the announcement Monday with the show's executive producer, Terry Lickona.

Stewart says the Austin music show site will join nine other rock and roll landmarks throughout the country. Among them are the Whisky-a-Go-Go club in Los Angeles and Brooklyn High School in the Cleveland area, where Elvis Presley played his first concert north of the Mason-Dixon line.

Stewart says a plaque will be placed at the Austin City Limits studio on the University of Texas campus.

The show is about to embark on its 35th season.
