Show #176 - Basement Battle of the States: Ohio vs. Michigan

Jumpin' Joe hosts the 3rd annual battle of the states between Ohio and Michigan.

While there's another kind of battle going on down in Columbus, this battle features Ohio bands and Michigan bands from the 1960s and early 1970s. Plenty of punches and power chords coming your way on this edition of the basement show!

Original Broadcast: November 26, 2022

Jumpin' Joe started the original Battle of the States: Ohio vs. Michigan on WJCU's Retro Radio in 2004. There were 12 battles in 15 years, and during that time span Ohio State went 11-1 over Michigan. Since reviving the annual tradition with the start of the basement show in 2019, Michigan has gone 2-1* over Ohio State. For you superstitious sports fans, Jumpin' Joe is not responsible for the outcome of the football games or the basement battle.

*No game or basement battle in 2020.
