Big & Rich Wow Em' At The Hawk

CITADEL Country WHWK (THE HAWK)/BINGHAMTON PD/afternoon stud ED WALKER called ALL ACCESS, flying high this morning after getting a treat of a lifetime last night (6/12). While wrapping up his afternoon show, ED got a call from RAYBAW promo whiz JIMMY RECTOR, who told WALKER that he should pop out in the parking lot when he got a second. Sitting in the WHWK parking lot was the BIG & RICH tour bus, complete with BIG KENNY, JOHN RICH and of course, RECTOR.
To make a long story semi-short (ED's version on the phone is a good hour), BIG & RICH ended up on the WHWK air-waves, playing music, taking calls and shooting the breeze with ED for about an hour. When they finally wrapped up, the boys decided they had some free time to kill and wanted to play for some listeners. After a few phone calls, WALKER set-up a listener appreciation show on the spur of the moment. The nearby MAGIC CITY MUSIC HALL opened its doors for a capacity crowd of 1200 WHWK listeners, who were treated to a 90-minute set with BIG & RICH.
Taking the cake on this one, WALKER reports that BIG & RICH picked up the bar-tab for the entire crowd!
