Simon was born in the boyhood home of Mark Twain…Hannibal, Missouri! He (Simon, not Mark Twain) began his radio career at the age of 13 at a tiny station in Monroe City, Missouri by standing on the sidewalk in front of the station’s big studio picture window until the owner agreed to let him in to “look around”. From there, bitten by the radio ‘bug’, Simon has “entertained” listeners in Kirksville, Columbia/Jefferson City and St. Louis, Missouri, Quincy, Illinois and now Cedar Rapids.
A child of the 80′s, Simon also enjoys Top 40 music from the 60′s and 70′s and still actively listens with his kids to much of the music from the Top 40 chart today. (He claims it makes the gray less ‘pronounced’.)
Simon is a self-professed geek who loves technical gadgets but still thinks a trusty radio is more fun.
Simon lives with other people in his house… wife Sheri, a son and a daughter along with Jack “the Wonder Dog”.
