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.

Memories of Racing Season

I'll never forget the first time my Dad took me to Saratoga for my first horse race.  There's something special about that place, selecting a horse by the name on the monitor and having Dad open his wallet for a couple of bucks.  Who cares about winning.  It was just a great memory being at the historic race track in the middle of Summer.

Charlie Worsham Plays Ozzy’s Crazy Train

If you were to look through my home music collection you would find I am very eclectic.  You'll find rock, pop, classical, blues, jazz and standards.  Many people are surprised by this.  Maybe it's because I have worked 28 years at the HAWK and some listeners go back to my 'Yesteryear Today' days, the classic country music show I produced and hosted in my "teen" years at 98.1.

Which Country Stars Celebrated with You on Your Birthday

The older I get the more I appreciate history.  My Dad has a big birthday coming up and as a gift, I decided that this is the year I would get him a newspaper on the date of his birth.  I wish the Binghamton Press and Sun Bulletin had this service but they don't.  I guess I'll have to settle for the New York Times, which happens to be his favorite newspaper so I am good there.
