Hi, I’m Ian P, I was born and live near Cannock Chase in Staffordshire UK. 

Apart from radio, my other hobbies include watching my favourite football team Wolverhampton Wanderers, Computer Maintenance and Collecting Vinyl,

As with most Presenters I started DJing in Pubs and Clubs opting to play all my music straight from Vinyl,

I started in radio with community radio which gave me a lot of experience, I eventually moved over to Internet radio about 4 years ago.

I am pleased to be involved with your favourite Radio Station, where you can hear my Discos Revenge Show,

It’s 2 hours full of Disco, Modern Soul, Groove and Funk basically if it got you on the dance floor in the 70s and the 80s I’ll be playing it.

You can get requests and dedications in via Studio@discosrevenge.co.uk alternatively follow the show on Facebook @discosrevengeradioshow

Take care

Ian P

what is disco?

Initially ignored by radio, disco received its first significant exposure in deejay-based underground clubs that catered to black, gay, and Latino dancers. Deejays were a major creative force for disco, helping to establish hit songs and encouraging a focus on singles: a new subindustry of 12-inch, 45-rpm extended-play singles evolved to meet the specific needs of club deejays. The first disco qua disco hit was Gloria Gaynor’s “Never Can Say Goodbye” (1974), one of the first records mixed specifically for club play. While most of disco’s musical sources and performers were African American, the genre’s popularity transcended ethnic lines, including both interracial groups (e.g., KC and the Sunshine Band) and genre-blending ensembles (e.g., the Salsoul Orchestra).

As disco evolved into its own genre in the United States, its range of influences included upbeat tracks from Motown, the choppy syncopation of funk, the sweet melodies and polite rhythmic pulse of Philadelphia soft soul, and even the most compelling polyrhythms of nascent Latin American salsa. Its lyrics generally promoted party culture. As the dance-floor mania developed into a more upscale trend, the cruder sensuality of funk was eclipsed by the more polished Philadelphia sound and the controlled energy of what came to be known as Eurodisco.
