About Simon Marshall

From a very early age Simon always had an interest in radio. From waking up at 4am to listen to the start-up on radio 1 to the day his Dad took him to an open day at BBC Radio Sheffield. The rest they say after that is history!!! Simon moved down south to Bedford and at the age of 14 he got involved with his local hospital radio station. In December 1998, Simon got an offer that he couldn't turn down! 

Simon's commercial radio career launched at the age of 19 when he joined B97 Chiltern FM in Bedford.  From there he went on to present shows for Mercia FM, Wyvern FM, Northants 96, Hereward FM, Q103 and Star Radio in Cambridge. Whilst working for the GWR/GCAP group Simon also presented some overnight weekend shows across 'The Mix' network. In 2005 Simon decided to say goodbye to full-time radio and start a career with the NHS ambulance service. Needless to say that radio is in Simon's blood and he'll never quite give it up yet!

As well as radio, Simon is a DJ, compere, and event host. He’s hosted/DJ’d both the main stage and dance music stage at the Bedford River Festival. Hosted the Bedford Park Concerts, MK Job Show and regularly DJs at Silent Discos at the Esquires Music Venue in Bedford.

Nowadays Simon is producing and presenting his own 2 hour weekly dance show called Weekend Anthems, playing the best in old skool, throw backs and brand new dance music.

If you love dance music, you’ll love Weekend Anthems!
