Since 2018 I have produced, created and presented my own radio show on NLive Radio, a local radio station in Northampton. Simon Selects airs every Monday for 2 hours which features mainly pop and rock music from the 1950’s up to present day all based around a different pop culture theme. The themes could range from a movie or TV show, to a focus on a specific band or artist, or songs that are connected in some way.
The show is witty, fun, inventive and informative with a mix of regular features. Sometimes I have been joined by guests to talk about a specific subject. One of my favourite shows to produce was an hour long improvised horror radio drama spoof. I enjoy being able to share my passion about different subjects and my knowledge of music with listeners and have received lots of positive comments.
As well as the main show, I’ve often stepped in to cover other shows on the station or produced and presented other special shows outside of my usual timeslot. During the pandemic, much of my radio broadcasting came from my mini home studio rather than coming live from the NLive Radio studios in the town centre.
I am confident with using radio and DJ software including Myriad, Virtual DJ and Serato, and have used own equipment to DJ at various youth events.
All of my radio shows are available to listen to on Mixcloud below and via the Listen again page on the NLive Radio website.
