Here’s video posted to Facebook of the tanker accident on Highway 63 at Highway 881. The poster took video and was beside the tanker driver. NSFW Language.

Dave Grohl: #1 Dad & rock star

When you’re a famous musician in a successful band that records and tours around the world, it’s probably tempting to let someone else take over the parenting so you can work.

 

Not if you’re Dave Grohl.

LOOSE CHANGE CHALLENGE

Posted on by chris byrne

On Friday we took The Chris Byrne Program to the streets of Fort McMurray, AB for the Second EVER “Loose Change Challenge”. We ask drivers to roll down their windows, grab whatever change is in their ashtray, and THROW IT out the window. All money goes to the Wood Buffalo Food Bank.

This year, totally out of the blue, I got a call from Mike.

Our Promo department followed up, and proposed a challenge.

So to win CFL Tickets to the Edmonton Eskimoes v Toronto Argonauts game, Mike would have to help us with the Loose Change Challenge…in a bikini.

And so the stage was set.

Always be yourself (unless you can be like Dave Grohl)

Posted on by Mike

Screen Shot 2015-06-26 at 1.39.57 PM

February 16th, 2001: The day everyone learned that not only is Dave Grohl the former drummer of grunge band Nirvana — and current singer of post-grunge band the Foo Fighters — but also a super funny dude who doesn’t take his job too seriously, and watches the same movies you and I do.

Appearing on The Late, Late Show with Craig Kilborn, we fell in love with Dave Grohl because he’s just like us.

We’ve been raised to believe that we should be ourselves at all times, unless you can be Dave Grohl, in which case: you should be Dave Grohl.
