The Canadian Geeks are back with the next battle in the massive “Buzzsaw’s Battle Of The Bands” Playlist Tournament. This episode our combatants have drawn the year 1978 and have painstakingly created some most excellent playlists from music released in that year. This match-up we see Sean Williamson, lead guitar player for the heavy metal band VARGA up against the one and only, Canada’s Metal Queen, Lee Aaron.

As you listen to the episode remember that the playlists are played in random order. You won’t know whose list is Sean or whose list is Lee. The vote is blind folk, simply vote for the playlist you enjoy the most and remember your votes will determine who advances to round #3. So sit back with an ice cold Rhythm & Brews and check out some awesome music from 1978.

And then there were “8”! On April 10th, 2018 sixteen Canadian Rock Icons entered into Buzzsaw’s Battle of the Bands Playlist Tournament. The field was randomly selected live on March 14th and each battle pairing was assigned a randomly selected year. Each participant then submitted their 3 song playlist of songs released during their selected year. Both playlists were played on the show and the listener votes determined the eight winners who have advanced to round #2.

Welcome back to the BBB Tournament and welcome everyone to round number 2! Today’s battle pairing sees Carl Dixon (Coney Hatch, April Wine, The Guess Who) VS. Anthony “Mif” Mifsud (Slash Puppet, My Insane Friends) as they battle for the year 1980!

It’s a blind vote to determine who will advance to round #3. So sit back, open an ice cold Rhythm & Brews Beer and then head over to our facebook page to cast your vote for either playlist A or playlist B.

Also discussed in this episode is a recap of the music played in round one of the tournament. Find out how Carl and Mif ended up here in the second round and listen to some incredible music from 1980.

CGCM Podcast Episode 37 – Roadrash “Sheldon Byer” Choose Your Own Adventure Interview

Episode 37 RR - Made with PosterMyWallWhile the Big Buzzsaw’s Battle of the Bands Playlist Tournament is on hiatus after the conclusion of round one, the Canadian Geeks return with something completely different. You could call it a revolutionary new format in Rock n Roll interviews or a drunken experiment gone horribly wrong or maybe both.

Some of you may remember the “Choose Your Own Adventure” books. Children’s books that allowed you to customize the story depending on choices you make throughout the book. Well what you are about to hear is the first ever “Choose Your Own Interview” Episode.

Our first victim is Sheldon Byer from the Vancouver band Roadrash! Roadrash is a 4 piece speed metal band that are entertaining audiences across North America. If I were to describe Roadrash’s sound, I would say 2 parts Motorhead, 1 part Kill em All era Metallica, mix well and serve loud! Their latest album  “Thunder In Paradise” and other cool merch is available at the Roadrash Bandcamp Page.

It’s a LONG episode so put some extra beers in the fridge. Hope you enjoy the first “Choose Your Own Interview”
