Tom Kitching Rip

I just heard the news of the sad death of a really top guy, big Boro fan and massive music promoter right across our region, Tom Kitching.Tom was a real music enthusiast and his roots in putting on shows went back to the Rockgarden days in Middlesbrough.

People I recall him championing around here included  John Otway, ....
