Unfortunately I won't be able to attend this one as I've got an engagement the following day in Arundel, just wouldn't have time to get back from Thorne. Really sorry to be missing this but should be at the next one. Hi to all my friends attending Boomerang.

Happy 6th Birthday Boomerang! :thumbup:

Hopefully gonna bring a couple of 'Nodding Dogs' with me - Last time we came, I could hardly get a word out of them because they just stood there shaking their heads at the tunz! (In a positive way I hasten to add!)

6 years and it only dawned on me this morning why you have called it Boomerang - Dur! - God I'm not the brightest sometimes! lol

See ya'll 'on the boards'...and you at the bar 'Bento' Dave :wink:

All the best,

Len :thumbsup:

Karen has decided to step-down as co-promoter. I am sure you will all agree that she has been the heart of BOOMERANG over the last 6 years, not just on the door but for the extra touches people have appreciated so much to entice them to Thorne or make the experience there even better.

All is now organised for Saturday night (I hope), just waiting for the hours to tick by...

Looking forward another night of quality tunes at my very favourite soul night and pie emporium.....it could get messy 'cos Hayley's starting her Special Birthday celebrations early, so you'll need to turn the volume up..........

Your right about messy Cliff, Kerry celebrating her birthday tonight :unsure::facepalm:

As always looking forward to tonight and a fine selection of soul music from all concerned.

And I would also like to thank Karen for what she has done in the past at Thorne :thumbup: her buns will be missed, often copied as well but never bettered IMO :D

Good luck to Maria with the future :thumbup:

My hair doesn't need washing.

Looked around for a good book but cant find one.

Unfortunately I dont seem to have a cold or similar ailment.

No excuse not to go so I'll be bringing a bit of Manchester refinement and sophistication to this outback.

Make sure cars are locked and valuables out of sight.

Kinda looking forward to it as you would to say a vasectomy.

Clare now informs me that heard on Radio 2 that M62 is shut around junction 20 owing to accident

Eastbound closed all night and maybe Westbound too, though hoping to open that direction later.

So Im really sorry but now screwed unless alternate route.

Have to look into it now.

Posted in case anyone else coming from this way.

Well Nina’s watching Lewis, so I’m gonna ‘play Soul-source’…..We all thoroughly enjoyed our night at Boomerang, we were situated over in ‘Dunce Corner’ :D Chr*st, how many times did “What’s this?"...…”Dunno” go around our table? That’s what it’s all about! :thumbsup: Bob went to see Andy Dyson about a record he was playing, as Bob also owned a copy…..or so he thought…..He ‘trundled' back to ‘base’….“No, it’s a different version which is on a ‘one off’ acetate....it would be wouldn’t it?”.....The ‘I know my place’ smile on his face was absolutely priceless! :lol: Yup, stick with us mate, we even have to ask about records we own, I feel so thick at times, I really do - but I also find it all highly amusing, even if it’s me (as is often the case!)…Sorry for sharing that Bob, but it was funny - I’m actually laughing as I type, and don’t worry, Andy won’t see this as he’s not on Soul-source (honest) :D

Arthur ‘spliced’ in ‘Romona Collins - You’ve Been Cheating’ nicely, always been one of my faves, scarcely heard out nowadays - Nice one mate. Oh yeh, it was on the ‘Blue and White’ label - Thank the Lord for Google! :D

We’re gonna get to Boomerang as often as we can, because supporting these kind of events is very important, and do you know what? I think I now prefer these smaller venues and the intimacy they have.

More than one person (that I didn’t actually know, I might add) told me I was “That Spanish D.J”……Not sure what that’s about, and not sure as I want to know, I’m just thankful that I generally don’t tend to give things much thought, ‘what with me being so laid back an’ that’ :rofl: Anyway, it was nice to be called a D.J, albeit a Spanish one! - I’d prefer ‘International D.J’ if you don’t mind (In a ‘Fat Boy Slimshape’ kinda way) :D

Great stories from Mr Bentley - They were ‘moooooo’st entertaining :D

See you next time, maybe there won’t be as many other events on the same night…hang on…..no, ‘hell needs to freeze over first’, oh well, we’ll be there anyway :yes:

All the best,

Len :thumbsup: - A.K.A ‘Manuel Hammond’ - Wow, I’ve finally got myself a D.J alias! At least it’s a step up from what John Manship calls me - ‘The Little Boy Who Never Went Away’.....

As usual I had a great night, spoilt for choice with real ale, Great Heck Blonde or Timothy Taylor's Landlord...couldn't make me mind up so had both :D

Great sets from all DJs and I had to make several trips to see what was being played. Thought Andy did a great first set of mainly 70's, more 60's later but the music was how it should be, refreshing, upfront, plenty of unknowns and by and large dancers.

Look forward to the next one.

Been travelling about for work, so a bit later than planned...

Thank you to all who came along to BOOMERANG last Saturday night, especially the serious travellers and our guest DJs Andy and Dave who brought freshness, alonside those sounds Arthur was itching to showcase. Hopefully we see some playlists up here soon

Always hard to judge the night when you are involved, so the feedback and support for future dates was greatly appreciated.

For those looking to grab the early-bird hotel specials, our dates are still:

Saturday 13th APRIL 2013, 8PM start

Saturday 10th AUGUST 2013, 4pm start for the annual 9hr summer special

Saturday 23rd NOVEMBER 2013, 8PM start

m

ps. I have finally looked up Dorset on the map - you four deserve a medal! 8-)
