This week on Disciplinn, we release a "pre-covid" interview (from early March 2020) with the living legend Lee Simon.
Lee is an absolute character, pioneer and much loved and vaunted figure of the radio industry. He has been inducted into the Australian Radio Hall of Fame, interviewed musical legends like Bruce Springsteen, Mick Jagger, Robert Plant and INXS (to name but a few). He has worked with industry legends like Molly Meldrum, Michael Gudinski and Eddie McGuire.
Lee has provided the voice track, and soundtrack, of countless people's lives.
Lee has been involved in radio for a hell of a long time, and as you'll hear, he was even a shareholder in Australia's first FM licence and associated radio station.
It's not a case of right place at the right time, as Lee may have you believe. Lee followed his passion and expertly navigated the waters. Lee sustained 40 plus years at the one radio network, whilst others put behind the microphone and behind the scenes came and went with insights, such as "kind of stay in your lane" and "look the whole way around you for influences as they come from the strangest places".
You'll find my interview with Lee entertaining a little different, but very invigorating.
Enjoy our chat.
