Our Tom Fox ads

If you grew up or lived in West Michigan in the 60s through the 80s, you’re sure to remember the voice of Tom Fox. Tom owned a number of jewelry stores throughout the Midwest with headquarters in Grand Rapids. He was an early master of TV advertising and is well remembered for his “Hi, I’m Tom Fox!” opening to his ads. His specialty was diamonds and he could talk with passion and enthusiasm about the beauty and everlasting quality of a diamond.

Now retired, we asked Tom to record a few announcements for the Grand Rapids Community Foundation. He and his wife Mickie have a Donor Advised Fund with the community foundation. The announcements are airing on WGVU public radio at 88.5 or 95.3 FM.
