Since 2005, The Governor's Ball: The "Mighty" Metal and Comedy Show, has brought laughter and headbanging fury to the metal community. Beginning in the bowels of the Toronto community radio and led by the enigmatic character simply known as The Governor, this hilariously violent program has attracted a dedicated and somewhat homicidal fanbase who revelled in The Governor's words and the powerful metal he would spin in every episode.
In early 2008 The Governor escaped the oppressive clutches of futuristic game show hosts and even his own clone and headed to cyberspace. The Governor's Ball now the mighty podcast it is today, attracts thousands of listeners with each episode. Each show is a mighty adventure, featuring headbanging metal tracks, words of wisdom from The Governor and his good friend Sly, along with interviews from the biggest metal stars in the world to local acts bursting on to the Canadian scene.
