Wessex FM Pays Tribute To Weymouth singer songwriter Tom Caulfield who died suddenly last month.

A few words from Maria:

"Tom was not only a regular guest on Unplugged but also a friend.  His loss has been felt very deeply by the local music community.  I thought it was only fitting that we played some of the interviews which I had done with Tom during his time on the show, and also once again tell the story of how he and several other local musicians raised money for charity by climbing Mount Kilimanjaro."
