Hot 95.9 was a Top 40’s station based in New Philadelphia, Ohio that served Canton. The station was so small-scale that there was no budget and five air personalities, Scott Shapiro (a.k.a. Scott Davidson), Jeff Turk (a.k.a. JT), Mike Adams, Jeff Shreve and Brian Kelly were left to put all the promotions together.
