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!

Never heard of a more faithful legion of fans than the North Bay “7th Man”. These air horn honkin’, bull horn crankin’, scream at the top of their lungs, passionate Battalion fans make opposing rinks sound like libraries in comparison. The North Bay faithful have a way of making every game sound like a home game.

David Hasselhoff BEST. VIDEO. EVER!!

Posted on by bryan.floyd

Say what you wan’t about the Hoff but he may have just put out the BEST video of all time. The song isn’t even as bad as you might expect from the former Baywatch actor. Watch as David Hasselhoff perfectly channels the 80′s in his new throwback video “True Survivor.”

And just in case you didn’t enjoy that… here’s the Hoff running in slow motion.

Kirk Hammett Loses 250 Riffs On Cell Phone

Posted on by bryan.floyd

Just in case you’ve been patiently awaiting new music from the Metallica vault… you might NOT want to hold your breath. It’s been 7 years since 2008′s Death Magnetic and we might have to wait a bit longer after Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett lost his phone with what he says were about 250 riffs and songs on it. NO PROBLEM, Kirk is a smart guy… he obviously backed up the songs right? Wrong!
Kirk said he’s pretty bummed out about the whole situation it in an interview with Rolling Stone this week ”I just plain lost it. I’m still looking for it to this day. It still might turn up. I’m hoping it will. To try to remember those riffs? I can only remember, like, eight of ‘em. So I just chalked it down to maybe it just wasn’t meant to be and I’ll just move forward with it.”
At last check, Metallica were about 30% finished their new album which might get pushed back a bit after this incident.

Are Beards A Thing Of The Past?

Posted on by bryan.floyd

pabst beard
Apologies to our bearded brethren and the dames who love ‘em but the beard craze appears to be over. According to an Australian university study, women are DONE with our face whiskers and now prefer their men to be clean shaven. The reason? We FLOODED THE MARKET!! Beards became too fashionable and soon every hipster and “lumbersexual” had one. They’ve lost their charm. Thanks to this fashion statement, guys who don’t have the time, nor the energy to shave every day have been put out.
What do you think… are beards still in or do you prefer the clean shave?
