It’s been a year since Tom Lodge left us. Every time we listen to a song from the early days of the British Invasion, like those from Georgie Fame or the Zombies, we immediately think of Tom.
Shortly before his death, he wrote to a few of us, imploring us to do what we could keep the remarkable story of Radio Caroline and Tom’s role in it alive.
It was a promise that we gave eagerly. And now, a year later, we re-dedicate ourselves to that task. Today, have another look at Tom Lodge, “The man who launched the British Invasion”
