From 10:00pm until Midnight every self-respecting rock fan was glued to the radio waiting for Tommy’s great mix of music and info on the bands we loved and the ones we hadn’t heard yet. Most of us heard many of the bands we now know and love for the first time on Tommy’s show and for this we will always be grateful.
