However, if you can make him laugh, he suddenly becomes this jovial, animated skater dude who will talk your ear off about an underground band you have never heard of. Under the mentorship of the legendary Andyman, Tom quickly moved up from intern to overnight host and is now our favorite evening DJ. Known around Columbus as the local music guru, Tom keeps the CD 92.9 FM airwaves fresh with talent grown right here in the capital city. His love for local music came from jamming in bands for over thirty years.
Among his many musical talents, Tom also has the ability to subsist on nothing but pizza and Pepsi (which is pretty amazing, honestly). Tom also regularly tears up the streets of Columbus on his skateboard. So if you’re walking outside The Big Room Bar and see an angry-looking, bearded man dressed in all black and riding a skateboard…yep…that’s Tom Butler.
When he’s not watching “cat TV,” Tom enjoys blasting My Bloody Valentine, New Order, Joy Division, and the Black Keys at obscure hours of the night.
