Director, Master Accountancy Program
M.Ac. Director and Musician
Listen to the KZIA (Z102.9 FM) morning show each Friday before a Hawkeye football game, and you’re sure to catch an unexpected earful - of marching band tunes. Radio hosts Scott Schulte and Rick Swann take a break from their top 40 format to rouse Hawkeye pride with live performances by the Schulte & Swann Multiple Award Winning Marching Band. One of those musicians is Tippie’s very own, Accounting Lecturer Tom Carroll on tenor saxophone.
By this fall he was ready to make his radio debut. Professional Accounting Council member and CFO at Baron Corporation, Jeff Triplett invited Tom to join this motley ensemble of volunteers, and Tom couldn’t resist. He continues to perform on air around 7:30 a.m. at the radio station in southwest Cedar Rapids on Friday mornings throughout Hawkeye football season.
The next time you’re in Iowa City, you can also see Tom playing in the Smith Studio Jazz big band. They play at senior care facilities and periodically at the Sycamore Mall at the El Dorado restaurant. Until then, tune into Z102.9 FM.
