Radio Man’s Favourite Flashback with Bachman, Turner Overdrive…


American Woman

Bachman–Turner Overdrive,[1] often abbreviated as BTO, was a Canadian rock group from WinnipegManitoba founded by Randy Bachman and Fred Turner. Their 1970s catalogue included five Top 40 albums and six US Top 40 singles (eleven in Canada). The band has sold nearly 30 million albums worldwide, and has fans affectionately known as “gearheads”[2] (derived from the band’s gear-shaped logo). Many of their songs, including “Let It Ride“, “You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet“, “Takin’ Care of Business“, “Hey You“, and “Roll on Down the Highway“, still receive play on classic-rock stations.

  1. Rather than being from Winnipeg weren’t they actually from Vancouver? They morphed out of Brave Belt which as mostly performing in BC. I thought all four members of BTO were living in the Vancouver area when the group rose to prominence.

  2. Mr. Bachman grew up in Winnipeg and his note worthy career began in that city. I love his Viinyl Highway broadcast every eeek on CBC Radio.. He is a proud Canadian.
