He was one of my founding mentors in radio, he taught me so much about radio. One of the most knowledgeable people I've ever known.— Aki Anastasiou, 702/ CapeTalk presenter and Traffic Reporter
When you first met Ian, he was kind of scary. He wasn't one of those easily-approachable people. But once you get on his side, he'll take you under his wings and share every knowledge he has with you. He wouldn't settle for second best and that's what made him such a brilliant broadcaster. He would strive for excellence.— Aki Anastasiou, 702/ CapeTalk presenter and Traffic Reporter
