A WARM WEDDING
This week former WARM Sensational 7 member Tom Woods posted a photo on Facebook of his wife Fran and Tom on their wedding day in 1964. Tom and his wife have been together for 49 years now. Tom got married when he was in the midst of a stored career on WARM.
What happens when a well known disc jockey ties the knot at the number 1 radio station in the market? You do what other people do......just get on it with and do what other people did at the time.
Except though that on Tom and Fran’s big day, George Gilbert who was on the air, did updates as to what was going on. Gilbert detailed the time of the church service, the reception and a few other things WARM listeners might have been interested in. WARM’s Terry McNulty was in the wedding party and Tom tells us that at the time, all of the WARM on air personalities were married.
The wedding was held at St. Mary’s Church in Plymouth, now All Saints Church and from all accounts that day was a successful launching pad for the 49 year old marriage. Tom is long remembered for his 6 to 9PM stint as a WARM personality before moving on to WTOP in Washington, D.C.
He is currently in semi retirement. The man with the good looks and dulcet tones keeps busy doing local TV commercials for various businesses. He is seen on TV doing ads for Green Briar Village and the long time married man has a new client he’s representing on TV. WARMlanders are you ready for this? Tom is is the spokesperson for “All About Singles" in one of their TV ads. What better spokesperson than a guy who is closing in on a Golden Anniversary. To Fran and Tom…many more.
