Amazin’ Avenue in Conversation, Episode 13: Evan October of the Isotopes Punk Rock Baseball Club

The singer/songwriter behind the Canadian baseball punk band talks fandom and music.

New York Mets vs. Atlanta Braves

Welcome to Amazin’ Avenue in Conversation, a new podcast from Amazin’ Avenue where we invite interesting people on the show to talk about themselves, the Mets, and more.

Evan October is the singer and songwriter behind the Isotopes Punk Rock Baseball Club, or the Isotopes for short. The Vancouver-based band writes songs about all aspects of baseball, including a song about a beloved Met: “The Ballad of Rey Ordoñez.” Evan shares three songs from the band, as well as chats about becoming a baseball fan in part to due WTBS, the cross-section of baseball and music, and why #0 inspired a song years after his retirement.

You can hear more from the Isotopes on their bandcamp page, or on Facebook or Instagram.

You can listen or subscribe to all of our wonderful Amazin’ Avenue Audio podcasts through Apple Podcasts, where we encourage you to leave a review if you enjoy the show. It really helps! And you can find us on the Stitcher app, Spotify, or listen wherever you get podcasts.
