Tom Lodge 1936 – 2012
We are sad to announce that Tom Lodge, one of Caroline's original
DJ's, has died at his home in California after a long illness.
He passed away as Tom Jnr was preparing to leave Canada to be with
him, but Lionel and Brodie, Tom's younger sons, were at his side.
Tom Lodge Obituary
Peter Moore on Tom's extraordinary life
A somewhat untactfull headline perhaps, but yes, yet another big name from the pioneering days of British commercial radio has been lost. Although before my time , the name of Tom Lodge is certainly one that i have read about many times, and am aware of the fact that he made a comeback to Caroline in much more recent years , although i stopped listening myself a long time ago.
