Tommy Carter’s (Drummer) Trad Jazz Band at work, Melbourne, Australia.
Tommy Carter ‘s association with entertainment goes back many decades – from football commentating with Jack Dyer on 3XY, running a sports program on 3KZ, being a special football commentator on 3MP – to working in several Community Radio stations in recent years.
Back in the 60’s, Tommy conceived the idea for, and produced “The Battle Of The Sounds”, heard on 72 radio stations throughout Australia.
In the 50’s, Tommy and his bands were very much in the Melbourne 50/50 dance craze, playing at town halls and hotels.
Tommy has remained active with radio sessions for over 12 years with Casey Community Radio 3SER on 97.7 FM Monday & Thursdays, and now worldwide on the internet, and with his band playing every Sunday at The Baxter Tavern, Baxter.
In 1994, he was awarded The Order of Australia Medal “Service to the community”.
Last year, he was inducted into the Karingal Star Zone Walk of Fame for his service to Frankston City.
