Simon Clarke has the most relaxing music on Smooth Radio at the weekend. Get in touch via the contact form below!
I’m 45 and I live on the south coast. I love being on or near the water – I actually hold a Guinness World Record for underwater endurance. I have 2 teenagers (she’s into dressage and he's into boxing). I love music and hate decorating. My first job was in a factory making carpet sample books, and I’ve worked in radio since I was 18.
My five favourite songs:
- Beatles – ‘Here Comes The Sun’
- Macy Gray – ‘I Try’
- Stevie Wonder – ‘Don’t You Worry ‘Bout A Thing’
- Deacon Blue – ‘Dignity’
- Tom Odell – ‘Summer Day’
The first record I bought:
‘InBetweenDays’ by The Cure. It’s fizzing with energy and is an instant time machine for me whenever I hear it!
My personal hero:
I really admire Matt Haig. His personal story is inspiring and his books are brilliant. Anyone who promotes kindness is alright with me!
My favourite way to relax:
My favourite way to relax is Stand Up Paddle Boarding. You can’t do anything else except take in the view and concentrate on staying up so it’s a great way to switch up.
