A trip back to the early 1980s finds Simon Young in especially sarcastic form when quizzed by Hot Press' Jackie Hayden (who wasn't shy to reveal his true feelings either). The result was a fascinating back-and-forth. Were they joking? You decide...
2fm’s Simon Young is the archetypal disc-jockey with all the accoutrements – deep voice, flash car, a full filofax and a mature moustache. But as the man Tony Fenton affectionally calls ‘Simes’ reaches a crossroads in his career, Hot Press decided to find out exactly what makes Simon Young, er, tick.
Jackie Hayden: Do you spend a lot of time choosing the music for your programmes?
Simon Young: Well no. I wouldn’t have time for that, what with opening supermarkets or shopping centres up and down the country and going to lunches and receptions and so on.
