Hosted and produced by the wise cracking and often outspoken Kingston based musician turned podcaster , Kasey Ferguson, this is an uncensored and raucous ride that speaks to those who are dissatisfied with what they hear on commercial radio . It's Saturday Night Live meets Headbanger's Ball, it's Letterman for metalheads, it's Mad Magazine for your headphones. It's an irreverent, unpredictable, wildly funny program presided over by a middle finger waving, misanthropic, music aficionado and television/movie buff who out of love for these forms of entertainment and frustration due to what he considered to be lackluster coverage , decided to take matters into his own hands to create a show that respected the art, the guests and little else. Kasey himself describes the result as "craft radio".
In addition to The Kasey Ferguson Show podcast, Kasey also hosted and produced a 25-episode radio version of The Kasey Ferguson Show, several interviews and a one-hour radio special for the terrestrial radio station, Amherst Island Radio 92.1 FM , a volunteer run station serving the community in and around his hometown which streamed to the online world as well. This version of The Kasey Ferguson Show featured all new content and became the most downloaded show on the station, a trend which continued even after the program went into re runs when he chose to leave the station in 2017 .
Kasey then accepted an offer from internet station Q108, Kingston's New Rock to produce a few specials, including the continuation of his annual Halloween series "The Haunted House Of Rock" which not only continues to this day but is often regarded by many fans as a staple of their Halloween celebrations each year.
Kasey is also an in-demand MC, hosting concerts, festivals, charity events, mixed martial arts contests and horror conventions. He lent his musical talents to one of his past guests when he was tapped to compose and perform the theme song for UFC Legend Dan "The Beast" Severn's MMA Promotion Dangerzone. Known to some for his writing as well, Kasey has written for several entertainment websites and magazines, the latest of which was penning a regular column, "Words From A Wild Card" and a cover story for 2nd Floor Sound Factory Magazine.
Most recently, Kasey created a custom program/station for The Cottage Coffee House in Westport, Ontario called "The Frothy Coffee Sessions" and began first run syndication of The Kasey Ferguson Show in the US with the Ohio based rock station, KRMA Radio and in Canada with Hamilton, Ontario's Alt Rock Radio.

“The Kasey Ferguson Show just gets better.
