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.

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.
