When you hear Matt Sims on the radio it normally means it’s time to kick back and enjoy some of life’s pleasures as the weekend has arrived! Matt grew up in a house of music where records were collected and played loud and proud on the Juke Box. This combined with the frequent sounds of Capital Radio, Capital Gold and Radio 1 sparked a love for music and Radio that is still with him today. As a child in the 90’s, Matt went to the Radio 1 Roadshow, seeing classic jocks such as Steve Wright do his stuff live to a buzzing crowd in the summer sunshine. There ignited an ember for Matt who longed to follow in those footsteps and entertain audiences in his natural, enthusiastic and contagious style. Matt is full of energy and loves nothing more than an opportunity to entertain! This led Matt to begin his radio journey on Community Radio, contributing to a Station award nomination at the Community Radio Awards before joining th Delux team in October 2021. Matt’s favourite food is Indian, but if the sun is out (or even if not) can frequently be found in front of the BBQ! DIY is a necessary chore rather than a passion, disasters frequent, however this creates some interesting stories which Matt is not shy to share. Matt’s favourite song of all time is ‘Peter Gabriel – Sledge Hammer’, request it and make his day (or night)!
