I’m Simon and I host the WRRV afternoon show weekdays 3-7. I was born and raised outside of Hartford and moved to Poughkeepsie to go to Marist. After that, I started a band and got a job here at station. Things I'm into: Festivals, drum solos and grilled cheese. Things I'm not into: Polka, close talkers and burnt grilled cheese. Top 3 music fests to look forward to every year: Mountain Jam, Gathering of the Vibes and Bonnaroo. Sports teams: Bears, Red Sox, Golden State Warriors. My favorite parts of working at WRRV? Artist interviews, concerts, backstage passes and of course free pizza.
