John Davison

I’m a local boy, born and raised and the second youngest of 4 kids. I love the outdoors, and much like Kenny Chesney and Zac Brown, if I could, I would spend the rest of my life on a beach with my toes in the sand. I enjoy being around positive people that dream big. Nature and animals are an important part of who I am, in fact, I have many rescue cats. In my spare time, I like to work out using non-traditional weight lifting techniques. Friends will call me a health nut. Country music is an essential part of my life as the Hawk has been very good to me since 1986. I’ve always said I have the most loyal listeners in the world. It’s thanks to my listening family that I received the Binghamton Broadcaster’s “Working Broadcaster of the Year” honor.

10 Benefits of Coconut Oil

Friends of mine have been singing the praise of coconut oil for some time now.  While it sounded interesting to me, I never gave it a try.  Now I read in Mother Earth Living some great benefits of cooking with coconut oil.  I always thought it was a "new thing," but as it turns out, people have been using coconut oil around the world for thousands of years.

One of the things I love most about country music is how the artists and fans come together to help those in need.  You see it time and time again with disaster relief, homeless animals (thanks Miranda!) and now Hunter Hayes is attempting to make history with a very generous idea to help Outnumber Hunger.
