What Simon Says

Celebrate the underdogs of glamour-tinged rock, pop and electronica. Revel in the hasbeens, b-sides, album tracks and remixes neglected elsewhere on the airwaves. Hear tidbits, light banter and joie de vivre from the creatives of the then and now, now and then. 


  • Producer / Presenter: Simon William Todd

    After loitering on the periphery of the London indie scene in the 1990s, Simon hot-footed it to Aotearoa where he loves his family, English language teaching and writing swan songs. He is a keen follower of Tāmaki’s maunga, enjoying rough and smooth basalt alike. A gig and album reviewer for Radio 13, Simon champions the seedier side of electronic pop and indie rock.
