Beginnings as a DJ ruined by a bad joke

Still in his native Picardy, it is as DJ that he officiates first on the waves of NRJ. He animates weekends and disco nights . Sharpening his talent on numerous stations, Sébastien Cauet became in 1993 the assistant d' Arthur on Fun Radio and quickly gets his own show. He does not back down from this new challenge that is offered to him, but it quickly turns into a nightmare since in January 1995, a bad joke about german concentration camps worth him a suspension of antenna then a dismissal for gross negligence.

As he explained to Sophie Front in It's a story , his biggest regret in life is that his parents died too soon to know the success of their son .

His mother died when he was 10, his father when he was 20. He said about them: ' The death of my mother is the cancer and she left pretty quickly. I remember everything about this period, almost minute by minute. The announcement, the consequences of what would happen next, the funeral... '.

Regarding the death of his father, he explains: ' I had to quit business school because I had no more money. and I'll spare you the details of a funeral to deal with when you're 20. [...] But you don't have time to cry because the next day you have to do the paperwork for the repatriation of the body, publish an advertisement in the newspaper for the burial... Everything that theory you shouldn't do at 20 '.

His blended family

Cauet and Nathalie Dartois have managed to come to terms with their past and create what Cauet consider themselves 'his wonderful family' as he revealed to Tele-Leisure in 2021: ' My darling with whom I am also has two children, she raised them very well, with values. (…) They are 13 and 14 years old, they are very intelligent. I like the role of stepfather, it's very funny this role: it's the role of father but with a little less pressure! I'm not here to be an authority, but to give good advice, to be cooler and to have a good time with them when they feel like it.'
