SYRACUSE — Less than a week after a crosstown competitor released a song about the Syracuse University men’s basketball team, morning hosts Gomez and Dave from TK99/TK105 (WTKW/WTKV) and 96.9 WOUR have their own. They debuted the song this morning on their show, which simulcasts in Syracuse and Utica.
Titled “In the Zone,” the song is based on The White Stripes hit, “Seven Nation Army.” But the lyrics are replaced with mentions of various SU basketball players, all sung by D.R. Rydher of the popular local band, 3 Inch Fury. Here’s the song in its entirety:
All this week, Gomez and Dave are broadcasting their morning show live from Washington DC, where the Orange will face Indiana tomorrow night in the Sweet 16 round of the tournament. TK99 is the flagship of the Syracuse University men’s basketball network, and 96.9 WOUR is the network’s Utica-Rome market affiliate. The stations are owned by Syracuse-based Galaxy Communications.
