Caldy Media: Connecting Music & Music Culture

From the drum kit up

Caldy Media | Ian Beecham

I spent around thirty years working (sometimes!) as a drummer in various rock and pop bands. Alas, mostly on the peripheral of any major action, but with an occasional juncture into the spotlight. Alongside this, I have continued to maintain an interest in computer code, which with respect to the rise and rise of all things internet, has since evolved into working mostly with web technology.

Higher Education

The missing link

In January 2019, I graduated from Liverpool Hope University with a 1st class popular music degree. In 2021, I continued my studies via The Classical Music Industry MA at the University of Liverpool and the Liverpool Philharmonic. However, this remains uncompleted at the moment ...


In the meantime, working with Mike Brocken, we have recently launched Radio Minerva. Which sees the welcome return of Folkscene, the longest running specialist music programme in British broadcasting history, to the virtual airwaves. You can read about the history of Folkscene HERE.
