Tom comes from a coastal fishing town on the South West of England.
He immigrated to Australia in the early seventies and this is where his interest in classical radio began. He joined a classical music society in Brisbane , finding himself a weekly spot on Brisbane radio 4MBS-FM presenting programs of classical music.
Moving to Canada in the mid 1980’s Tom picked up where he left off in Australia. He was invited by CKWR to present a weekly Classical program. It was in 2008 that he introduced a new series called “Women in Music”. Over the years this series has become very popular with female artists/composers from around the world and is promoted by the “International Alliance for Women in Music” www.iawm.org.
Tom plays trombone in his church and has a small brass ensemble that he takes to Senior Homes each month.
