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.

Famous Record Club Returns

If you grew up in the 70's, 80's or 90's, you no doubt remember seeing ads in magazines for Columbia House.  It seemed like an offer you couldn't refuse, offering you a bunch of CD's or cassettes for just a penny.  With the competition for iTunes, Columbia House filed for bankruptcy last year but wait a minute, they're back with a new twist.

2015 was an interesting year for country music.  The 'Bro Country' sound received quite a bit of backlash from critics and fans alike, Garth Brooks was just about ignored by country radio but his concerts set records for selling out in a matter of minutes.  Entertainer of the Year, Luke Bryan continued to have a big year.  So did Sam Hunt, Thomas Rhett and Eric Church.
