Simon Clarke Presenter & Corporate Host
Hello and welcome to the online home of Simon Clarke. Radio Presenter, Event DJ and Corporate Host.
Since 2007 I’ve been presenting the weekday afternoon show across the South on Wave 105 and supplying music for the hottest private parties as an event DJ and corporate MC.
My broadcast experience as a music programmer guarantees a contemporary yet familiar party playlist that will leave your guests with lasting positive memories of your night whether it’s a wedding at one of the New Forests top hotels, a corporate fundraiser at St Marys Stadium or a concert on Bournemouth Beach in front of a crowd of thousands.

It’s the end of September and I can’t quite believe that we are now three quarters of the way through the year. This is the second of my planned 2 weekends off and while many people are out celebrating payday or having final drinks before Stoptober...read more
I’ve posted quite a lot of feedback recently and I appreciate some might question it’s authenticity. So here’s an actual letter which appeared on the doormat a week ago which presents the opportunity to show you in black and white what a recent client had...read more
It’s just been announced Martin Bashir is returning to the BBC as a reporter. You probably know him from his deeply personal interview with Princess Diana about her marriage on Panorama or the much talked about documentary with Michael Jackson. But did you know he is...read more
A lot of my work is based on personal recommendation via clients I have worked with before. The rest comes from events companies or wedding planners. Natasha Small is one of the latter and I worked with her on a wedding at Rhinefield House earlier this year : “When...read more
Following my post about how good last Saturdays party felt from my perspective, I’ve had this email from Natasha. “Thank you so much for all your hard work! Everyone has been raving about the party and I’m so impressed that we kept so many people on...read more
Big Jay popped around this morning for his annual visit. He’s a friendly chap and we have good banter in the half an hour or so he’s here. Jay is a PAT tester, and he checks and certificates all my sound and lighting gear every year. Plus the odd hair dryer. Not mine…...read more
On Saturday night I ended a looooooong run of weekend summer events with a private party in The New Forest. I had been booked for this over a year ago and although details were very sketchy at the time it was obvious this was going to be a brilliant evening. The party...read more
This weekend I’ve spent more time in marquees than my own bed but it’s been great fun. Last night I was back on the sand helping the team from Beach Weddings Bournemouth with an Indian themed wedding. As I was packing away last night I realised that today...read more
I’ve been looking forward to last nights party since I was booked the previous summer. The groom Tom is a fellow wedding supplier and one of the nicest people you will ever meet and so as a consequence has some great friends too. Turns out his new in-laws also...read more
I always like to do a daytime set-up whenever possible. It’s usually a lot more convenient for couples to have everything already in place rather than interrupting their day with banging and clanging in the corner and from my perspective it’s more relaxed to just...read more
Simon has been an absolute pleasure to work with, professional, really friendly and so accommodating. He exceeded all my expectations and everyone was up and dancing to his great mix of music. I fact I wish I had known about him when we got married!
Booking Simon for our wedding was one of the best decisions we made - we didn't have to worry about a thing. His lighting transformed our reception venue completely and everyone was up on their feet dancing the entire night. My sister was so impressed she booked him for her wedding too. Thank you for helping to make our special day such fun for everyone

We couldn’t have asked for a better DJ! He had everyone dancing from the first song until the last. We had lots of comments on how great the music had been and he really bought the night together. I am so glad we hired him and didn’t risk going with a less experienced DJ. We would recommend him time and time again!
Organising an event for 280 people is hard and the last thing I wanted was to worry about the entertainment. Thankfully after a brilliant recommendation from a friend I found Simon who was reassuring from the moment we first spoke. All of my guests commented on the amazing selection of music and his professionalism meant I could leave him to his own devices and not worry all evening! I will continue to recommend Simon and definitely use him again for future events. Thank you so much!
