Simon became a volunteer at 3MBS in 1985 when he first began programming Organ and Choral Music, and he has been a presenter since 1989.

His musical knowledge is extensive having worked in the music retail industry, specialising in print music, since 1983. He has always sung in choirs and is currently an alto lay clark in St Pauls Cathedral.

Hobbies include collecting locally produced LPs of organ and choral music, which are occasionally shared on a Sunday morning. There's also a 1974 Rover P6B which gives much pleasure as does his interest in photography.
