Tom Lodge - Broadcasting


In the late 1950s Lodge moved to Yellowknife, where he worked in a goldmine until he joined the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation as an announcer on CFYK. On 27 May 1959, a son, Tom Lodge Jr. was born. Tom Jr. is currently a presenter on Radio Caroline. In 1960 Lodge became the CBC manager for a new radio station CBXH in Fort Smith, N.W.T., until he returned to England as a CBC correspondent. In 1964 Lodge joined England's first offshore pirate radio station Radio Caroline, as disc jockey and programme director. His book The Ship that Rocked the World describes his time there. The motion picture "Pirate Radio" is based on the novel. After the outlawing of the pirate radio ships in 1967 by the Marine Broadcasting Offences Act, he worked as a disc jockey for the BBC's newly created Radio 1.

In 1968 Lodge became a disc jockey on CHLO-AM, St Thomas, Ontario, Canada, where he continued to build his reputation for breaking new music. In 1970 he founded a creative program at Fanshawe College London, Ontario, Canada, called "Creative Electronics", which after two years he made into Music Industry Arts, a training program for recording engineers and record producers, and is still operating at Fanshawe College. Tom Sr although resigned from radio, he continued to contribute to his son Tom Jr's weekly radio Caroline show when he wanted to when he was able, also he did 2 last shows, for his beloved Radio Caroline one being his (first last show) personal history of Radio Caroline and the music that was integral, the other being a close look at the history and importance of the lead guitar with its solos, playing the lead guitar solos that changed rock n roll, both shows are still available in the Caroline web shop.
