SPIDER HARRISON℠ is a native New Yorker and one of the most heard radio personalities during the 70's, 80's and early 90's. He was given the nick name 'Spider' while playing football at Hempstead High School and the name has stuck with him throughout his career. Already singing in doo-wop vocal groups while still in junior high, Spider was introduced by a New York concert promoter to the professional side of the radio and record industries throughout New York City, New Jersey and Connecticut. He soon began promoting live show dances at social clubs and worked with professional broadcasters in the New York metropolitan area.

After high school Spider Harrison, interned at WWRL and at WABC in New York City. While attending classes at CW POST COLLEGE / Long Island University, Spider Harrison℠ received his broadcasting training at the college radio station WCWP-FM, New York where he created the program 'Introduction To Soul'. Shortly thereafter he landed his first professional radio gig at WTLC-FM, Indianapolis, Indiana.

At a relatively young age Spider Harrison℠ rose to prominence by replacing the legendary radio personality John R. at WLAC-AM, the Class A 50,000 watt clear channel radio station heard in 28 states, parts of Canada and in the West Indies. Because of WLAC's early history of pioneering Blues and R&B, the station is now honored in the Rock n Roll Hall Of Fame. In the Seventies, while he was still at WLAC, Billboard Magazine purchased the station and soon Spider Harrison℠ successfully launched the first Billboard Soul Countdown weekly syndicated show under WLAC's new Top40 format.

Moving to Los Angeles, Spider Harrison℠ while still in radio also worked with Sugar Hill Records, the world's first independent rap/hip-hop label, and worked with their artist, Grand Master Flash and Furious Five who later would be inducted into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame (2007).
