Another MC Event

 Recently, Tommy Kaye was asked to MC a special event, the 90th birthday show for singer Johnny Florence. During the event, aside from presenting Johnny with a special cake and a massive multi-page card, Tommy sat with Johnny in front of the 300+ crowd for a 20 minute talk about his life.

Jim Slade

 Fellow Radio icon, Jim Slade, known to many in Australia, had his farewell event recently at a venue now known as "The Brit". Tommy Kaye was the compare and was able to quieten the hundreds that came along to see Jim, enough to ask him questions about his life on radio and THAT time when The Beatles came to Adelaide and where Jim got to meet and interview them. Congratulations Jim on a life on radio spanning more than 50 years!

The lost years

 Since "Retiring" in 2020, Tommy Kaye has moved into the country and now resides peacefully alongside the river where he was born. RadioKSA server has been relocated into New Zealand which has made life much easier. The station continues to attract listeners around the world!  The dulcet tones of Tommy Kaye are still being heard - although these days more as a commercial voice, helping pay for his retirement hobbies.

2020. A Year with no name

 For all of us, 2020 was a lost year, events that were scheduled were cancelled, postponed or even just plain forgotten. Many lost revenue, some lost their way and others decided to just hang up their microphones. 

I'm one! With just a few Private shows (thanks Sam) its time to look ahead to what the next few years might bring.

Recent travels interstate have shown events are more likely to happen in the areas I love being involved with.

I look back (for a brief look) but then, I look forward. 

Good luck to us all in 2021 and thank you all

South Australian Music Hall of Fame

Tommy Kaye was given the task of Stage Managing the Inductions of the SAMHoF. This was done in collaboration with founder Enrico Moreno and initially created by the late David Day. The task of Stage Managing was a timing thing, are they in the Green room? Are they ready? Is the set right? As their name was called out, it was Tommy's job to make 100% sure that the talent (the inductee) was right behind the curtain!

It's all about timing!
