QuickChexx: Hawk Harrison, WYHY Nashville | 1992 (approx)

Coming to you via the fabulously enormous Contributor Robyn Watts collection, here’s a selection from “East Coast Airchecks” Tape #32 entitled “Hot Night Jocks”.

Hawk Harrison is no Coyote McCloud, but definitely cuts it as a hot night jock on one of the nation’s most notorious CHR stations – made so in no small part thanks to the efforts of televangelists like Jimmy Swaggart, who called on ownership to pull the plug on the station and advertisers to stay away. Eventually, to a degree, it worked, as Y107 would change to AAA as “The River” – a format that continues to this day.

Its another teaser aircheck at just under 5 minutes in length… with more to come shortly from Robyn Watts!

  1. Hi Steve,

    Just some minor corrections to add to your description.

    The aircheck was from either late Spring or early Summer of 1990, judging by the songs heard.

    Shortly after this was recorded, Hawk Harrison went to WFLZ/Tampa for a stint. Today, he is now part of the “Hawk and Tom Show” on CHR WFBC-FM Greenville/Spartanburg, SC.

    As for Y107, they didn’t go Triple A in 1996, they went Hot AC as “107.5 The River”. However, with the growth of CHR nationwide in the late 90s, the station adjusted back to Mainstream CHR by late 1998 while keeping “The River” handle.
