Scott Simon

LEARNED IT FROM THE RADIO: I was obsessed with radio as a kid. I started hanging out at the radio station when I was 7. I’d do anything just so they’d let me hang around. I annoyed them enough that they let me on air full-time when I was 13 doing the 7p-12m show. Too young to drive, my “sign off” line every night was “Come and get me Mother…I’m through.”

FAVORITE MOVIES: I love old classics, westerns and war movies. The Godfather, Patton, Sling Blade, and Field of Dreams are a few of my favorites.

FAVORITE SONG TITLE: “Take Your Tongue Outta My Mouth ‘Cuz I’m Kissing You Goodbye.”

SONGS THAT WEREN’T #1 HITS BUT SHOULD HAVE BEEN: Alan Jackson’s “So You Don’t Have To Love Me Anymore,” George Strait’s “Everything I See,” Jimmy Wayne’s “I Love You This Much”

THE GREATEST COUNTRY SONG OF ALL TIME: “He Stopped Loving Her Today” written by Bobby Braddock and Curly Putman, and performed by the greatest country singer of all time George Jones.

A MAN’S GOTTA EAT: A good steak and taters, barbeque, raw oysters.

MY NEXT THIRTY YEARS: Camping, fishing, travel and golfing.

I WAS ALMOST HOME: As a kid, weekends on the farm riding horses, hunting arrowheads and shooting rattlesnakes.

REGRETS: I have a few. But, then again, too few to mention.
