Tom Campbell on WONE/Dayton (Early February 1967?):

Before arriving in San Francisco, Tall Tom was the toast of the town in Dayton, Ohio. This great hour of TC was recorded by nine-year-old Paul Van House, perhaps in early February 1967, on his father’s Voice Of Music reel-to-reel tape deck from the line-out jack on a hi-fi (albeit mono) AM/FM radio.

  1. I just heard Tom Campbell doing voice over on a TV commercial during the Dodgers game tonight. My goodness, he’s still got the best pipes in broadcasting after 55 years in the biz. Amazing! And this website is great. Thank you for all the impressive work you do here. 🙂

  2. Hey, Tom….. Bobby Dark here, from KBOX in Dallas……. I rode sidekick a few time on AFRS
    with you in LA. You were in SFO then and we met up in LA. Small world. I hope all is well.
    Drop me a note…. best regards from Dallas. Bobby
