I hope everyone enjoyed Saturday night and had a good dance. A lot of money was raised for a worthwhile charity - Winstons wish with loads of great prizes won including Casino posters signed by the original artist. Thanks to Caz for organising the charity aspects for the evening and those people who donated prizes.

My set consisted of the following tunes:

Intruders - Check yourself, United four - She's putting you on, Lee Andrews - Never the less, James Carr - Thats what I want to know, Olympics - The same old thing, Bob Relf - Blowing your mind to pieces, Fred Hughes - I keep tryin, Mel Wynn - Stop sign, Terrible Tom - we were made for each other, Valentinos - Sweeter than the day before, Duke Browner - crying over you, Fi-Dels -Try a little harder, Bobby Treetop - Wait til I get to know you, Gene Toones - What more do you want, Soul Brothers six - Thank you baby, Candi Staton - Now you've got the upper hand, Gloria Jones - Come go with me, Jeanette Williams - All of a sudden, Loretta Williams - Baby Cakes, Bessie Jones - No more tears, Little Joe Roman - When you're lonesome, Phillip Mitchell - Free for all, Sherlies Band - My sugar baby, Buster & Eddie - Cant be still, David & the giants - Ten miles high, Harvey Scales - Too good to be true.

Thanks to Bob for for giving me an opportunity behind the decks.

Cracking night, thanks Stu, Moz & all our other friends there - best night here in ages (despite a very popular all nighter 'down the road' lol) Can't wait to do it all again on NYEve, K&G xx

If you think anyone at Monaco will be the least bit interested in the above, then think again. It is an out and out oldies venue where people know what they like and have a good time dancing to it, regardless of the colour of the label. That sort of thing is left to other venues and that's fine. I was at the Stoke nighter that night and it was a cracker of a night. However, between 12-1(I think) Chris King treated us to an hour of garbage. ALL ON ORIGINAL VINYL. Crap records will always be crap records, no matter what label they are on. Same reasoning goes for good records and a lot of those records on Stu,s list are good records. Now, how long has Monaco been running ???

I went to said "Allnighter down the road" a few years ago, got there around 10pm - left around 3am. In that short time your "Real DJ's" played Nolan Porter FIVE TIMES ( was told it was played again after we left) not to mention the usual other suspect tracks played 2 or 3 times....... clearly 'Real DJ's' don't need to listen to each others spots and can just turn up 5 seconds before they're due on

 

That said, at least I left safe in the knowledge that all these repeats were "Real Records".
