Middays with Ian Davidson

An East Tennessee native, Ian Davidson caught the music bug young.  A love for music led him to radio early in life and that love of music has stayed with him since.  As a musician, Ian enjoys sharing his love of music with others.  He is also a history buff and a fan of documentaries.

Ian and his wife Aletheia enjoy spending time watching movies, cooking and playing with their furbaby Lucy.

 

 

 

Afternoons with John Donovan

John grew up in the small historic town of Natchez Mississippi. He caught the radio bug early in life at age 13 and got his first “real” radio job when he was 15. He won’t mention what year that was. Let’s just say it was a few years ago. He has worked at radio stations in Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, North Carolina and here in East Tennessee.

John and his wife Ann like to hike, treasure hunt at thrift stores and just get lost in the mountains together. John is glad to be back with 105.7 WCRK FM and Ann’s happy about it too, being that it gets him out of the house!
