About Ian

With 37 years as a professional DJ, compere' and presenter, Ian has had a career playing music and meeting many interesting people. Oh and a few not so interesting. Away from work, Ian loves spending quality time with my wife Jackie, my son Henry, daughter Melissa and some very good friends.

Favourite Song - I am partial to the music of Alexander O'Neal, George Benson and the late Luther Vandross. If I have to come up with just one song then it would have to be 'I Don't Want to Miss a Thing' by Aerosmith as this is the song that reminds me of the birth of both my son and daughter and reminds me how lucky I am to be a Dad...

Favourite Gig - I would have to say my favorite gig has to be the singer song writer Paul Carrack. I've worked with Paul a couple of times and each time he just delivers an outstanding performance, apart from being an extremely talented artist he is also one of the worlds Mr Nice Guys.

Favourite Film - The Greatest Showman. It's just one of those film I can watch time and time again.

Favourite Place in Portsmouth - There's nothing like a nice walk along Southsea Seafront on a lovely summers day with the family.
