Meet Simon Cook:
Go on, make us laugh – what’s your favourite joke?
Bacon and eggs walk into a bar. The barman says, “I’m sorry… we don’t serve breakfast”.
Where did you spend your childhood?
I grew up and went to school in Wiltshire. I lived in a lovely town called Bradford-on-Avon, near Bath.
What’s your favourite drink in morning?
A nice mug of strong, hot coffee…Because I get up at 5 a.m. to present a morning show, I usually have about four coffees before 10 a.m.
Who is your favourite Christian music artist?
This is a difficult question, because I love so many of them. I think my favourite artist is TobyMac. I have loved his music since the days of DC Talk. My favourite Christian group will always be Casting Crowns. Probably because I have seen them live a few times.
What’s your favourite TV programme?
Ha ha…uumm…Probably Dr. Who (I still hide behind the sofa during the scary moments).
Do you have a favourite bible verse?
Yes, it’s Matthew 6:33. Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need. This scripture was given to me as a teenager by my father. It’s a reminder to me that God wants me to put Him first before anything else in my life.
Finally…If you weren’t a radio presenter, what job would you do?
Well, being a radio presenter has always been my dream job. If I wasn’t a radio presenter, I think I would like to do a job where I help people and knowing that I have made a difference to their life.
