Show With No Name

On air Monday through Friday from 6 to 10 AM

Tommy Smith

This radio icon has had a storied career that has spanned the United States. Tommy's greatest years and achievements came during competition at Lamar Porter field. He went on to attend Central High School (for a while) before finishing his education at Metropolitan Votech. Near as we can tell, he served 4.5 years in the Army (achieving the rank of Sergeant). This is where he got his big break in broadcasting, repairing radios in tanks. He got his first job at KEWP 1380 AM while using the name T.C. Star (yes, seriously). He became part of central Arkansas radio lore as he rose to fame at Magic 105 starting in 1980. After a brief stint in Memphis he continued at Magic until the two "parted ways" in 2004. He then landed in the lap of 103.7 The Buzz where he has once again taken over the market with his blend of humor, anger and making David Bazzel giggle like a school girl on The Show with no Name.



David Bazzel

A Florida high school all-state athlete in football, track, and weightlifting, David was recruited by such schools as Arkansas, Florida, Florida State, Miami, and Georgia, eventually signing with Lou Holtz and the Razorbacks. He was team captain, three year starter, and four year letterman at linebacker under Holtz & Ken Hatfield(1981-86), participating in four bowl games including a television MVP performance in the 1984 Liberty Bowl vs. Auburn & Bo Jackson. David played on the 1982 Arkansas defense that led the nation in scoring, was the team leader in tackles in 1984 and was defensive captain of the 1985 unit that set an all-time SWC record of allowing no rushing TD’s during the entire conference season.



Roger Scott

Roger's addition to The Show With No Name brought a renewed spark to the Legend and The Linebacker with a variety of talents including amazing impersonations and a comedic wit and timing that have Buzz listeners crying with laughter in their cars, homes and at work. From Arnold Schwarzenneger, Dean Martin and Ray Charles to local favorites Wrastlin Man, Ty and Brother Father Mathias, Roger grabs your attention on the air or at station events and refuses to let go...despite the occasional restraining order. Who knows what's next for Roger Scott? An Academy Award? Mr. Olympia Title? A recording contract? The only thing we know for sure is we're thankful to have him in the Buzz family! Even if he is our very own "weird uncle Roger".



RJ Hawk

RJ was born in Midland, Texas on October 26th. He went to high school in Athens, Texas and then went to the University of Central Arkansas. While at UCA, he was active with the UCA baseball team and worked at the campus radio and TV stations; KUCA and Channel 6 news.

He has worked at several different stations across the state of Arkansas doing play-by-play for different high schools, and currently works on all the high school broadcasts for 103.7 The Buzz. RJ joined The Buzz in the summer of 2007 as an intern, and worked part-time as a producer. In July 2008, RJ got hired full-time as a producer/promotions asst. He currently anchors all the sports slams and you can hear him on the high school state championship broadcasts. RJ is now the Producer and contributor on The Show With No Name (M-F 6-10am).
