His first job in radio was at a small news talk station in Vancouver, Washington, a suburb of Portland. It was there Dawson learned the broadcast techniques that would lead him to take a job at The Fan in Portland where he stayed for eight years before he was downsized. In typical charmed life fashion, it turned out a new FM sports station, 95.5 The Game, was set to launch. After 21 months at The Game and filling in for a national broadcast on The Jim Rome Show, Gavin left Portland for Dallas.
Gavin attended college off and on for four years, accumulating credits from five different institutions of higher learning. He dropped out for the final time in late 1998 to pursue a career in delivering broadcast content.
Gavin aka The G-BAG General is possibly the greatest host in the history of sportsradio, according to him. Now in his third year in the metroplex. His family includes his daughter, two pugs named Harvey and Burger, and his girlfriend/fiance/commonlaw wife.
You can find him on XBOX live as “radiochamp” but his friends list is full so you will have to message him and convince him to delete a friend before he can add you. This creates stress in the General’s life.
He is also stressed by still not receiving his apology from Dale Hansen and the latest career ending injuries for his hometown Portland Trailblazers.
He has adopted the Rangers as his favorite MLB team but refuses to convert to the Mavericks and has no interest in gaining a rooting interest in any specific NFL team because it’s too much fun to watch the entire league.

On June 22, 2014, I lost my second G-Bag Nation flag at a bar in Fort Worth. But through the power of the Nation, the story ends well.
G-Bag Nation’s very own Jeff Cavanaugh was foolish… brave enough to participate in an Attack Dog demonstration as supervised by the good folks at the Garland Police Department. The dogs were all expertly trained and [...]
To kick off the upcoming NASCAR season, the G Bag Nation created their own high speed race: the first annual Check Change 225, a race around the “track” here at CBS Radio to determine who [...]
One of the coolest guys we talked to this week on radio row, is Copperas Cove product Charles “peanut” Tillman.
If having a childish temper tantrum over suffering one of the worst losses in franchise history is his worst crime, he should be saluted not lectured.
From 1992-95 Erik Williams – together with Nate Newton, Mark Tuinei, Mark Stepnoski and Larry Allen was part of one of the best offensive lines to play in NFL history called ‘The Great Wall of Dallas’.
Mickey Spagnola joins the G-Bag Nation everyday to talk Cowboys, but Monday was special. When the topic of a possible Jason Hatcher extension came up, the gloves came off.
I think it’s very possible that the consistent action of defending Romo against unrealistic criticism for close to a decade has conditioned his supporters to now not be able to evaluate the possibility that this is a time for realistic criticism.
When it is all over we may very well have a legal opinion and settlement that defines who was in the right, who was in the wrong and to what extent. But this is what I believe is the real reason things went crazy.
The guys take Stephen Jones and Ben to the jury to find out if they are BUTTHURT OR WHAT? Special appearance from the General Gavin Dawson.
Every other program that takes itself seriously as a national power would have fired Brown by now. Most observers at this point feel like it’s one if not two years past due.
After blogging and debating the merits of Tony Romo’s fourth quarter stats on 105.3 The Fan with many of you today, I was interested in testing my theory further.
