Bryan Floyd

Weekday Afternoons 2:00pm to 7:00pm

Join Bryan on the Fox Drive 2:00pm – 7:00pm.


I wasn’t born, I spawned. Floyd is Irish for ”Only Child”. My first and only marriage was when I was 5-years-old to my pre-school sweetheart… we got a fake divorce and she now has a real husband. One day, decided I was going to chase down a life long dream, becoming a River Boat Gambler and making my own beef jerky, when that failed, I became a Radio Jock. “Strip Club Management” wasn’t available. That said, I may have taken Radio Broadcasting but I distinctly remember there being strippers. Rock & Roll and long weekends are right in my wheelhouse. In the summer you can typically find me, shirt off, in flip flops, on a beach or dock. I dig the Leafs, Jays, Raptors and of course the North Bay Battalion who I work Public Address for (One Minute Till Ceasefire)… 2014 Eastern Conference Champs!!! Sometimes, I make words sound sexy. If you see me buy me a drink… I like that!

Slash & Axl Becoming Friends Could Mean Guns N’ Roses Reunion

Posted on by bryan.floyd

According to James Young, owner of Melbourne’s rock and roll Cherry Bar and huge contributor to the Australian rock scene, a Guns N’ Roses reunion might be closer than we think. Slash announced last week that after 2 decades of fighting, he and long time “frenemy” Axl Rose had finally buried the hatchet, “it was long overdue” said Slash. According to Young, not only have the two become friends again, they’re planning to headline Melbourne’s Soundwave festival next year. There’s been no word from the band yet as to whether or not the rumour is true… if so, it could mean the reformation of the ORIGINAL 1987 ‘Appetite for Destruction’ lineup of  Steven Adler, Izzy Stradlin, Duff McKagen, Slash and Axl Rose.
GN’R rock ‘Paradise City’ live at The Ritz, New York in 1988.

Jon Stewart Gets Slammed on Monday Night RAW

Posted on by bryan.floyd

It didn’t take long for Jon Stewart to return to television. The long time Daily Show host interrupted a championship match at WWE SummerSlam over the weekend. Last night Stewart explained, he did it to preserve his good friend, WWE Legend Ric Flair’s record of 16 World Heavyweight Titles. John Cena was looking to surpass that record Sunday night against Seth Rollins when Stewart interfered by hitting him with a chair.
Even if you’re NOT a big wrestling fan, you have to admit… this is amazing! Jon Stewart ROCKS!!!

Foo Fighters Troll Westboro Baptist Church With Rick Astley

Posted on by bryan.floyd

Even on their off day… the Foo Fighters are up to something. The band continued their trolling of the Westboro Baptist Church this weekend by “rickrolling” a group of protestors in Kansas City. The band drove by protestors in a pickup truck, blasting Rick Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up.” Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins was also seen holding a poster that reads “You Got Rick Roll’d (Again).” The Foo Fighters last hijacked the Westboro protests in 2011, when they performed an impromptu flatbed concert while dressed as hicks in the same city.

Axl Rose Late For GN’R Gig Because of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Posted on by bryan.floyd

Guns ‘N Roses frontman Axl Rose has a reputation for being notoriously late for gigs. At least one of those late showings was reportedly due to the fact Axl was watching Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze. According to the Tampa Bay DJ who passed along the story, he was witness to an argument concerning the band’s December 1991 show in Tampa. Axl was fully aware he was supposed to be on stage but was 100% dialed in to the movie and couldn’t be bothered.
In fairness, “Secret of the Ooze” is a great flick, almost can’t fault him for that… almost.

Florida Man Busted for Illegal BBQ Smell

Posted on by bryan.floyd

IT’S BBQ SEASON!!! Just make sure that delicious BBQ smoke doesn’t leave your yard! Scotty Jordan had just fired up some delicious ribs on his BBQ when he was approached by an environmental inspector. Apparently a neighbour complained about the smell of his barbeque, and said it was “illegal” for the scent of his ribs to waft off his property. WHAT?!! This video is ludicrous! This has to be a hoax. I mean really, what kind of MONSTER complains about the delicious smell of ribs?!

Dave Grohl Celebrates 20 Years of the Foo Fighters with Rock & Roll Throne

Posted on by bryan.floyd

Long before Dave Grohl took a tumble in Sweden, breaking his leg so badly it required surgery, it was decided the Foo Fighters were going to kick off the North American leg of their tour back where it all started 20 years ago. The Foo Fighters performed in Washington over the weekend and it was better than we could ever have imagined. Dave Grohl’s rock & roll throne might be the MOST rock & roll thing to ever happen to rock & roll!
Dave came up with the design while he was in the hospital.

Here’s Dave explaining the incident before breaking into ‘Big Me’ off the bands debut album ‘Foo Fighters’ released July 4th, 1995.
