Bachman Turner Overdrive - Voice Your Choice

Bachman Turner Overdrive, or BTO as they quickly became known, formed in Vancouver, British Columbia but were from Winnipeg, Manitoba. Randy Bachman had been a founding member of The Guess Who with Chad Allan. Between the time Randy quit the band and formed BTO, he had another group called Brave Belt.

When Randy Bachman and his brother Robbie Bachman teamed up with Fred Turner and Blair Thornton, a new page in Randy's illustrious history was about to begin. These hard rockers went on to chart 12 times between 1973 and 1979, including a Number One Gold Record.

This week on our Annual Salute to the Music of Canada on Treasure Island Oldies, Voice Your Choice spotlights BTO - Bachman Turner Overdrive with two of their hard rocking tunes: Takin' Care Of Business and You Ain't See Nothing Yet. Cast your vote for the song you'd like to hear. We'll play the winner in Hour 3 of next week's show.
