What was your first job? Do you have a funny story about it?
My first job was volunteering for the British heart foundation.  I used to stand outside the shop with a microphone to try and get people into the store to spend their hard-earned cash and my best job is what I’m doing now which is karaoke presenting and private parties/mobile discos. 

What are you happiest doing when you’re not working and why?
I enjoy going on long countryside walks and enjoying good food. If you've seen my Instagram you know why.  Also, I enjoy spending time with family and friends.

What’s your favourite album and why? Does it remind you of a specific period in your life?
One of the first albums I bought was the best Latin carnival album in the world.  It was a compilation featuring 40 of the best Spanish songs ever and started my love for Latino music.

What song do you hate most and why?
Anything from Michael Buble (sorry) I find him overrated but I would be happy to play him for my listeners if requested.

Which artist/ musician alive or dead would you most like to get a coffee (whiskey etc.) with?
Prince.  I think he was an enigma as well as being an incredible performer/songwriter.

Tell us something no one knows about you? 
I am a singer-gram. I'm booked for special events such as birthdays, engagements, anniversaries.  When booked I turn up at an address with a PA speaker and sing a couple of songs to the special person.

What’s your most useless talent?
It has to be my corny jokes although people love to hate them.

What will finally break the internet?
A power cut

If we went to Happy Hour what would you order?
A cocktail probably be a Pina Colada with the parrot and umbrella

Finally - is there anything specific you want the listeners to know about you…
They can follow me on Twitter @djdansun to find out what content I have coming up. I also support local artists and bands on my shows.

  • Trevor Simpson was born and raised in Kebroyd, Triangle and spent most of his working life in Halifax. After joining the legal firm of Bearder and Son, solicitors from school, he spent thirty-two years working for them as the agency manager for Abbey National Building Society. When the Abbey decided to open a full branch office in 1990, they offered Trevor the job of Branch Manager, where he worked for several years, before taking early retirement in 1995. 

    A keen sportsman, Trevor played as a goalkeeper in local football and was an avid Halifax Town supporter from the age of seven. An injury in 1966 enforced his change of direction and he became a football referee after learning his craft locally. He progressed through to the Football League where he spent seven seasons (1984-1991) officiating at the highest domestic level (all top clubs except West Ham Utd!). He also had two appearances in Wembley F.A. finals, various European and International matches and as a linesman at a World Cup qualifier. He retained his activity in football working for The Professional Game Match Official Ltd. as a referee coach and later a referee assessor on the F.A. Premier League. Trevor also completed 30 consecutive years as a referee and ambassador at the Dallas Cup International Youth Tournament in Texas. 

    His greatest interest outside sport has always been popular music. An avid record collector since his teenage years, Trevor possessed every No.1 record since the British charts began in 1952. He was viewed by many as a worldwide authority on Elvis, wrote numerous articles about him in various worldwide magazines and visited Graceland several times. Trevor published five comprehensive volumes charting Elvis’s early career which have now sold-out. He researched and wrote two local volumes of ‘Small Town, Saturday Night’ chronicling the 1960s music scene around Halifax. He was also part of the Halifax Music Heritage Trails.

    Trevor was the founder of Radio Calderdale in 1981, the hospital radio service in Halifax. During his time there he did regular shows and helped raise funds for the station. Each year until 2020, Trevor broadcast on Christmas Day morning and took great delight in announcing the babies that had been born that day. He also assisted with live commentary of FC Halifax Town’s matches from the Shay for several years. For the past two years, he volunteered as a presenter at the online community radio station, Calder Valley Radio, where his weekly music show was adored by many listeners all over the world. He cared passionately about the station, helping out with grants and fund-raising initiatives, such as the hugely successful Elvis night in September 2023.

    Following the sad news of Trevor's passing in January, his family have decided that any donations made in Trevor's memory should go to Calder Valley Radio as Trevor really enjoyed the two years he spent with the station and did so much to raise our profile.

  • Welcome to Calder Valley Radio.

    Welcome to Calder Valley Radio. Established in 2020 with Dave, Guy, Fiona, Tony and Val and the help of Hebden Royd Town Council and comedian, Jon Richardson, we launched in the middle of a pandemic. All our Planning in 2019, could never have prepared us for what happened in 2020, but this was our best training. We didn't miss a broadcast and even through our own health issues and sad times, we carried on. Radio became our support too, in our times of need. We know, from your messages to us, that Calder Valley Radio helped you through too and music truly is a great healer.

    As we venture forth, with Tim Morsley as our Programme Manger and a great team behind the scenes, we are so excited to be supported by Calderdale Council. We are looking forward to delivering a wonderful programme of events and shows in the coming seasons ahead.
