590 MIGHTY MEMORY #443

An ad for the hub with WARM personality Tommy Woods. 

A FASHION PLATE 


One of the perks about being a WARM personality in the 1960s was the opportunity to get other work. Most of the WARM jocks got gigs as deejays at record hops. Even when schools had bands, the WARM jocks still hosted the show playing records in between the live act. (I met many a WARM personality at the St. John’s dances in Pittston!) Tommy Woods went to the next level actually appearing in an ad for The Hub. Woods’ all American good looks gave him that clean cut well dressed man look guys at the time wanted to emulate and women just adored. Even in retirement Woods is a star in advertising. Recently he was on TV as a spokesperson for a elder care facility.
