Hi, I’m Simone Wilson, the new ‘kid’ on the block. I’ve played records for others to enjoy for as long as I can remember. I started at the age of eight playing my sister’s records for her on her Dansette record player. In the late 70s I had my own mobile roadshow playing to pubs, clubs and parties. This was at the height of the disco era with the new 12” singles allowing DJs to mix tracks in a very basic way compared to the modern club DJ. I still do the odd party from time to time.
I came across Black Cat 107 whilst driving past our famous, or should I say Infamous roundabout. As I was queuing for it, who doesn’t, I saw Black Cat on my DAB radio and I gave it a listen. I liked what I heard and when home I looked at the station’s website, saw the volunteer link and joined the station as a fill in presenter. I took to twiddling the knobs and buttons like a duck to water, and with the help of other presenters guiding me, I now present the Home Run on a Wednesday and Thursday. Musically I love things from Classical to current day, Blues, Country, Jazzfunk to name but a few, so on the show you’ll never know just what I will play for you, but it will be the world’s greatest music. I also like to feature local artists who you hear playing in pubs and clubs around county.
However you listen to Black Cat 107 on FM, on DAB+ or on your smart-speaker, I look forward to keeping you company.
