Tom Dunne represented by Noel Kelly Tom graduated from UCD with an engineering degree, but his passions lay elsewhere. He is best known as lead singer with Dublin group 'Something Happens' who were one of the country's shining lights in the early 90's with albums like 'Bedlam A Go-Go' and 'Stuck Together With God's Glue' and unforgettable singles like 'Parachute' and 'Hello, Hello, Hello, Hello, Hello (Petrol)'. The group haven't recorded in years but are known to reform for occasional gigs in packed venues around the country. Since the band split Tom went about establishing himself as a music presenter on television and radio.

On radio, Tom first presented a show on 98FM before moving to Today FM in 1999, where he presented the Pet Sounds Show. The show became known for playing a mix of alternative, indie rock and new music; and frequently aired songs before they entered mainstream radio airplay. The move to Today FM gave Tom a national audience for the first time on radio. He scooped a Hot Press Award within months of starting Pet Sounds. Tom also filled in on The Ian Dempsey Breakfast Show and The Ray D'Arcy ShowPrevious to his current programme, he presented The Tom Dunne Show on Newstalk, weekday mornings between 10am and midday.

Tom's first foray into TV Broadcasting was on a youth-aimed music programme on RTÉ called Popscene. Tom later took over the reins of Planet Rock Profiles, a programme that has aired on RTÉ, ITV, VH1, and many other TV Stations throughout the world. He co-presented RTÉ's coverage of the Electric Picnic Music Festival in 2006. 

He has also published collections of his favourite songs by Ireland or Ireland-connected artists, known as the Tom Dunne Collections. In early 2006, he released The Definitive Tom Dunne Vol. 01: Pet Picks 2000-2006, a compilation of some of the most popular tracks for the Pet Sounds radio show. 

In 2001, Tom won a Meteor Music Award for his special Pet Sounds Live from Witness Show. The following year Tom scooped the double of the Best DJ title at the Meteor Music Awards and the same prize from Hot Press magazine. He has five PPI Awards.
