80's twists with Simone Boyd
The person behind the face behind the voice behind the microphone - get to know our talented presenters
Having been on air for just over six months, Simone Boyd loves the fact that music has the power to elicit memories of people, places and events. She feels it is a privilege to be able to transport listeners back to the fabulous 1980's.
So Simone, if you could only play one artist during your program, who would it be and why?
It would definitely be a toss up between INXS and Bruce Springsteen. Springsteen's songs are rich in rhythm and emotion, and he is such a gifted story teller. However, in the end, I think INXS would win the battle. A classic Australian band whose music is truly timeless. Having seen them in concert at Festival Hall as a teenager; their energy, talent and charisma is second to none.
You can listen to Simone every Tuesday afternoon from 4pm - 6pm as she presents her program "Big hair and leg warmers with a twist".
