In 1987, I awoke to the Tom Rivers show on 680 CFTR. My alarm clock was locked on 680 not just because I enjoyed the top 40 music of the day, but because I thought Tom Rivers was great fun.
Before the internet, it wasn't nearly as easy to find out what radio personalities looked like. Tom Rivers had a big voice, and in my head he looked like Peter Jennings or Tom Brokaw. I still remember the first time I learned what Tom Rivers looked like and it was when I saw this ad on television.
Tom was a fine looking guy, just not what I expected.
