September 6, 1975, I recorded the Philadelphia Bell at Charlotte Hornets WFL football game from the WBT-1110 AM broadcast on my cassette tape player. I named this Web site after the liner Harold Johnson said prior to every commercial break... This is the Charlotte Hornets Football Network.

When I started this Web site I used that crackling recording from my original cassette tape for a voiceover as part of the introduction on our "Home" page.

Recently, I contacted "The Big Guy", Harold Johnson, and asked him to record a fresh version of that voiceover. Harold was more then happy to comply.

A "Special Thanks" to Harold Johnson and Charlotte's WSIC-AM Program Director, Brian Weiss for the new updated liner for our Web site. Thank you both... Harold, you're the best!
