Summer in the Southern Tier has been known to be short.  In the coming weeks, people will be doing a lot of traveling, hitting live shows, going camping or if you're lucky, taking a road trip to the ocean and other exotic places.  You'll need to pack some good tunes for you and your family and friends to enjoy.

Don't forget that The Hawk is more portable than ever with the FREE Hawk App Radio Pup.  You can download Radio Pup to your smart phone or tablet by clicking HERE or it's freely available in your Apple iTunes App or Google Play Stores.  Just look for Radio Pup and locate 98.1 The Hawk.

The truth is summer is a good time to be introduced to new music and if you're a country music fan, you're in luck, there are a lot of great new releases coming out this summer.  Check out what's new here and thank me later!
