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.
