Ian Danter - Second Time Around - Flyah Review


Ian Danter has had a love for music and football from a very early age. His Dad and Grandad were both staunch Birmingham City fans, and Ian attended his first game at St Andrew’s with them in February 1974 at the age of 5 – he remains a passionate ‘Bluenose’ to this day. The love of music also came from his Dad and Grandad who were both talented pianists, and Ian took piano lessons up until his early teens, by which time he’d switched to playing drums as his first instrument.

Upon his return from France, the talkSPORT bosses gave Ian another new role as host of “Matchday Live 2” on talkSPORT 2 every Saturday afternoon. The station had just won exclusive rights to 3pm Premier League commentaries that summer, and the first programme came from the Riverside Stadium in August 2016, as Middlesbrough played Stoke City on opening weekend. 

In 2017, Ian continues to divide his time between radio work for talkSPORT, talkSPORT 2 and Planet Rock – he also can be heard as a voiceover on various commercials on TV & radio (the voice of Screwfix for Sky & ITV’s coverage of the Football League and England, for example) and he is now drumming in a theatre rock show Leather And Lace, which plays Classic Rock Anthems and Power Ballads from throughout the decades.

Alla talked about her time as a engineer being changed from constructing buildings to bridges with no guidance given to her. Even after transferring from Africa to U.S.A. for an engineering job, Alla was puzzled that she earned the job but she strive to achieve her goals. In life, dedication can be the breaking point of a successful venture and a reflection of the steps taken to get there. Alla also theorizes about a time that women felt uncomfortable in a …

Piqued Jacks rock n roll #Flyah

Piqued Jacks describe their sound in their own words: “being able to speak without impediment; having sex in the most intense way possible; expressing ourselves 100%”. You have to hear it to experience it for yourself. Piqued Jacks are brave souls. Rising from a small village in Italy, they have methodically made their way from obscurity to Austin, the heart of the indie music scene, performing 2 showcases at SXSW 2013. Their powerful alliance and headstrong vision has resulted in rapid success and the positive flow of their career indicates a confident band gaining serious momentum. Back in 2006, the Piqued Jacks were anything but serious. They causally acquired the band name after someone drops a bass during rehearsal. The damaged jack resembled an erect penis and the boys felt the sexual allusion suited their sound. A few years later, something clicked, a unified connection to the music making process, and from 2010 to 2011 they released two EP’s, conquering Italian airw…
