Message from Tom

On Leave

Sorry folks – due to a (routine) hospital operation I’m now on leave from BBC 6 Music and Fresh On The Net until Saturday 28 Sept 2019.

Our inbox here will reopen on Monday 16 Sept and Team Freshnet will still be choosing the tunes for our Listening Post as normal. And – don’t worry – all Listening Post tracks this month will still get heard by me in due course and considered for radio airplay.

Thanks so much to everyone for their kind wishes… the op has gone well and I’m already on the path to recovery. And to be honest I really needed a rest!

  1. I’m so pleased to hear the op has gone well Tom. You certainly deserve a proper rest and now all those presenters you have been sitting in for on BBC 6 Music can come and sit in for you for a change! Have a really good break and I hope the holiday bit of it is really enjoyable. And have no fear (as I’m sure you won’t), Team Freshnet will handle everything in your absence. πŸ™‚

  2. Good to hear the op went well.
