Now in the autumn of his life Ian looks back with fondness at the great experiences he has enjoyed over the past 77 years. His love of music started in his teens. Singing solo in churches then a concert party before progressing to the variety stage where he enjoyed all kinds of music, latterly specialising in Scottish songs. Ian joined Radio Tay as a presenter in 1982 and remained there for 32 years presenting light music and Scottish music shows. He is delighted now to be one of the amazing team here at TD1 and hopes you enjoy listening to his shows.
"Double Scotch" brings you the best of Scottish Dance Music and song featuring the many fine young musicians of today but not forgetting the greats from days gone by, plus a few songs for good measure. You can hear the programme every Thursday at 8pm and Sunday at 6pm.
"Melodies For You" is a variety of music with the accent on melody. There's something for every taste from big bands, ballads and light orchestras.
The programme is broadcast on a Sunday morning
at 10am here on TD1.
