820 CHAM, Hamiton’s Mike Naburrs, Co-Host of the Legendary Morning Show and Traffic Specialist, re-wrote the song “I’ve Been Everywhere” by Hank Snow as a promo piece for the station. But, it took George Fox, who recorded the song years back, during the station's "Legend Launch" week in January to do it justice.
http://www.milkmanunlimited.com/tunedin.htm reports that Mike offered up the lyrics and asked if George could take a run at it, fully understanding if the answer was no. Months went by until CHAM Production Manager Matt Bazinet got a call saying the track was done. 820 CHAM The Legend now has a one of a kind GOLD promo piece for the station, the kind that stations used to pay top dollar for, presented courtesy of country artist George Fox.
