Show Notes

This week we keep Season Two rocking and rolling along with legendary Canadian musician, radio host and storyteller, Randy Bachman!

Randy regales Steve and Diana with rock star quality stories from the road, how The Guess Who got their start (hint, that wasn’t their original name!) how Vinyl Tap came to be on CBC Radio and its new, syndicated home at Corus Entertainment!

Randy shines the spotlight on his son, Tal Bachman – a star in his own right, but how could we say no to double Bachmen? Tal talks about the joy of working and touring with his Dad, and the genesis of their hilarious, unscripted YouTube show called Bachman & Bachman.

NOTE: This episode was recorded prior to Randy announcing that health issues have forced him to postpone his Vinyl Tap live tour – which has now been rescheduled for November of 2022.
