Tommy was a boy who lived in Chicago.
He was the son of the Dad. One day, he came across ED-E, and persuaded his dad to take him in. In the recording, he says "Yay! He'll be just like RALPHIE, only this one's not a toy!". This means that there were toys based off the pre-war TV show RALPHIE the Robot's Incredible Odyssey!, but, more importantly, that Tommy somehow had access to pre-war television; ED-E got the tapes of RALPHIE from the Enclave, but how Tommy did is unknown, as most TVs no longer function in post-war America.
