Barnsley Radio Host Gets New Show

Tuesday May 14 2013

DJ SIMON Hirst is hosting a new national radio show - and it'll pit him against his hero.

Hirsty, 37, is presenting his new show on Global Radio's Gold.

He plays the 'greatest hits of all time' every Saturday from 1-5pm - airing at the same time as Tony Blackburn on BBC Radio 2.

"Tony is a good friend of mine and I used to listen to him do Pick of the Pops every week but now I am up against him playing my own oldies."

Hirsty has taken on the new programme in addition to co-hosting his ever-popular Capital FM breakfast show 'Hirsty's Daily Dose'.

"I've been a massive fan of Gold for quite a long time, as I'm obsessed with music from all decades and I've got quite an eclectic taste."

"When I was 13 you would have found me upstairs on Barnsley Market looking for old records.

"With 20,000 seven inch singles in my own personal vinyl collection, my friends call me a music geek, so the chance to play some of the greatest hits of all time is a wonderful opportunity for me."

And what a total big headed oversized ego wearing tool he is! He may have made it on the radio but iv heard hes really tiny in the trouser department, which is why he cannot hold a relationship down.

actually Hirsty is a really nice guy , I have never met him , but people I know have done , and he is very interactive with his supporters on facebook , he is always polite , pulling a joke and certainly does not speak like that post is written above *claiming to be hirsty , he would not even lower himself to that tone , Well done Simon if you read this chuck xx
