Hi Pete we cannot make this one but just wondered if you could put a bottle of The Twisted Wheel beer to one side for us if possible and we will collect it on the 2nd Sunday session ?

There is always a good few from Stoke at the Wheel however a lot of the Wheelers are not on SS but use Facebook

Try posting on FB, it is easy to get to by train and walking distance from Manchester Piccadilly Station

Morning

 

Lots of people asking me at the Keele Allnighter last night (which was a great night again!) hows the New Club Pete, and do we need tickets for Friday?

 

NO! its pay on the door.

 

Really looking forward to this night with a great line up of Dj's, and if 60's Soul and Basement Clubs are your bag, you will love this place!

 

Best Regards

 

Pete Roberts.

Pete,

 

Have been asked by lots of people "Is there any truth in the rumours that you will be doing the Sunday Sessions EVERY week?"

Hi Frank Fitten (Prestatyn)

 

Sorry I miss your telephone call this afternoon (and I haven't got your phone number)?

 

Yes people coming from Wales, Chester. Liverpool, Durham, Newton Aycliffe, Sheffield, Blackpool Stoke-on- trent, Rochdale and Lancaster to name but a few!

 

Frank you will love this Basement Club on Princess Street it's just like the Old Wheel on Whitworth Street where you spent so many years of life in the 60's, like you said on my answer phone how could I miss this ONE!!!!  You asked where are they all going for a drink first? I have spoken to all the Dj's today Frank and believe me, they are all up for this historic night mate!!  Barry Tasker, Johnny Mac and Big Brett and the Sheffield Lads are all meeting up in the Old Monkey and the Grey Horse on Portland Street.

 

Looking forward to seeing you and the Middleton Crew tomorrow.

 

Pete.

What a night!!!..... A Big Thank you for a Fantastic Night!!!  Yes the Wheel magic was there as always and the 'Wheel Atmosphere' that hits you like a train when you walk down the stairs.

 

Thanks to the Dj's who did a great job on the Decks.

 

JOHN GREEN

JOCK HERON

BARRY TASKER

SEAN CHAPMAN

MARTIN THE MOD

 

And last but not least to all the people that travelled the length and breadth of the country to be with us on the night. Great to see Pete '45' who travelled from the Hague in Holland to be with us and he will be joining Jos & Rigo from the 'Amsterdam Soul Club' next Sunday for our Original Wheel Sunday Afternoon Soul Sessions!... And also in the RnB & Mod Room will be the lads from 'The Black Bee Soul Club' what a Fantastic Sunday Afternoon we have in store for you!!

 

Thanks again.

 

Pete Roberts.
