Hello . . . Im Darren Daley!
Just like my colleagues (the 2 Simons!), over the last 20 years my career in radio has taken me all over the UK but now I am happy to be based back home in Taunton, Somerset! I live with my partner Kerry & our two children. On leaving school I qualified as a carpenter before becoming a full time radio presenter (chippy to DJ? Don’t ask, long story!)
Looking back, I probably had my best time on the radio as the breakfast show presenter on what was Vibe FM, based in Bristol. The show was called ‘Daley On The Loose’ and I remember an interview we did with Charlotte Church when she was in her heyday, I had arranged for a waiter to turn up with 2 pints of stella & a packet of fags and she loved it, thought it was hilarious!
My first mobile disco was shortly after my 16th birthday in Newcastle Upon Tyne where I lived at the time. I would be paid £40 a night and my parents used to drive me to the gigs and then pick me up at the end of night! Since then I have been lucky enough to work at a number of exclusive venues, private marquees and appear on the infamous ‘Party In The Park’ stage with a number of well know celebrities, including Mark Owen, who I played noughts & crosses with before he went on stage!
One other thing . . . I am a football referee at the weekends so I like to keep fit which comes in handy when you have a little boy because the little ones certainly know how to zap the energy from you don’t they?!
