Greatest Musical Decades: The Final Smackdown

After seven weeks, the champions for each musical decade re-joined us in studio to make a final push for their decade to be named the GREATEST OF ALL-TIME. Legendary DJ Red Robinson argued for the fifties, while veteran CBC Reporter Terry Donnelly fought for the sixties. CBC Producer Geoff Turner laid it on the line for the seventies and On the Coast's Lisa Christiansen championed the eighties. Producer Jeremy Allingham battled on behalf of the nineties, while Elaine Chau brawled for the aughts.
