TV presenters are not allowed to wear a tie of any of the colours of the main political parties because of the General Election, in case it influences the way we vote.
Well my mind is made up. I'm voting Labour.
last night Chantelle wore a red bikini on Babe Station.

 

Well it's not long now everybody and as always great interest being shown for the 16th and here's a tune that i've spun once or twice at The Corner Pocket and of course with a political conection.....

From a very wet Steel City it's a very good evening everyone,

 

And now we're only a week away to this months event and so if you want to hear the very best in Across The Board Northern Soul and Motown, from forgotten gems to current in demand dance floor killers.... and of course just perhaps a new breaking sound or two you have only one choice to make,

 

             be41e69c-0327-45b3-bd0d-d31067dd2920_zps

 

All brought to you by "The Party That Cares" and not to be missed this months Special DJ,

 

The Right Honourable Mr Tom Wheelhouse MP (music player) who's DJ election manifesto pledges the dance floor will be fully employed from 10:30 pm onwards, order!.....order!

Just a little mention Mr Wood informs me that his time spent behind the decks at last nights event at The Hole In The Wall Soul Club as guest DJ went down a storm and he has acquired some new original R&B sounds that might just get a spin on Saturday.....

Well it's a very good evening everyone on this very and warm and pleasant Monday in Spring but feeling more Summer like all the time.....
Lots of interest being shown already for Saturday's event and the team are as always raring to go and if you like a true night of "Across The Board" Northern Soul and Motown music that is 100% dance floor driven you don't have to look any further than The Corner Pocket.

So with each day we're getting a little nearer cdnew_zpsbldbiwvp.gif and i think we can safely say that the countdown has started.

 

Speaking on behalf of the team here at The Corner Pocket i can say that we are most definitly looking forward to another great night here, from our "meeter and greeter" Jackie, Sue aka "Miss T" as event co-ordinator, not forgetting top sound man, roadie, DJ and chief cook and bottle washer Tony "Ado" Adams to Derek G and his blue eyed British collectables and his archive of Tamla Motown, we've got Dave "Woody" Wood and his on the pluse Rhythm'n'Blues dancers to his latest Northern Soul discoveries (trust me this fella does still find them) and of course myself, i think that say's "we're all up for it"

 

This month we have the mighty "Tom Wheelhouse" as special guest DJ and i can say a man who honestly knows how to get the dance floor buzzing.....

 

If you haven't been yet you don't know what your missing and if you have know what we're saying!

That's got to be the best signing off and a greatest summing up if ever I heard one in a long time there Mr Wood and suits you to tee (not the Miss T variety)....I really must learn how to use the quote facility on here...

Well as we keep saying not much longer now until Saturday's event at The Corner Pocket, were all as always looking forward to yet another top night and as we like to say we are 100% dance floor driven and request friendly...if we have your requested record we will do our best to play it....your night is our night the more you enjoy yourselves the more we enjoy ourselves....

So if your still a little undecided about where to go for your fix of Soul we can assure you of a great night here at "The Corner Pocket"

So we're almost there and this time tomorrow all systems will be go,

 

niBGn8MqT_zpstcy2b6cb.gif

 

So once again if you still haven't made up your mind where you are going or fancy a change from your normal Saturday night routine both the team and myself can assure you of a great night, from The Corner Pocket music policy that really does cater to both requests and the dance floor and is (and i'm saying this yet again) is a real across the board selection of all things Northern, Motown and with just a hint of Rhythm'n'Blues.

 

All of us here at The Corner Pocket believe passionately in giving everyone of the event goers the best night that we can, each and every DJ is hand picked on merit and isn't there simply for any financial reward.

 

So if you can make it we look forward to seeing you tomorrow night, at an excellent venue with a large talc friendly dance floor a top sound system set up (thanks to our man Tony "A") and if that's not enough great cheap bar prices.

 

Russ.

 

PS did i mention the music?

Well done there Tony with your "thrown in for free record" not had the same pleasant experience, just had a record arrive in the post, beautifully packaged I got an amazing deal on it as well the vinyl is better than described and on a very clean radio station demo label....so far so good yeah?

The only problem is i've bought the completly wrong song in fact something I've never heard and to add insult to injury both sides are completely dire (can you imagine a Cajun meets Electronic Rock fusion mix?) and it's my fault !

So remember boys and girls "if something seems to good to be true, it probably is"

See you all later, for a cracking night of real across the board soul music (minus any Cajun Electronic Rock fusion mixes....honest!)

Tony are you getting soft in your old age or the prospect of a double hernia from lugging a record box around that pound for pound can hold it's own weight wise with a small family estate car?

  Well we're only a few hours away now from what stands to be another top quality night of genuine "Across The Board" Northern Soul, Motown and R&B at Mexborough's Corner Pocket.
I think Tony A aka Ado has been drafted in on early deck duties for this month and really this fella is a very professional DJ with a great mike manner and is willing to go a little off the tried and tested musical path but is always purely dance floor focused..... JJ Callier "Pusher Man" perhaps?
This months special guest is Barnsley's very own "Tom Wheelhouse" and his reputation goes before him as a top soul spinner, so as we alway's say "remember to bring your dancing shoes, you're gonna need 'em"
Great interest already being shown, Woody's and Miss T's phones haven't stopped ringing all over the weekend so we're expecting a great turnout, so why not come along and give The Corner Pocket a try and with a 100% dance floor driven music policy, cheap bar prices and warm atmosphere we're sure you'll have a great night.

Well on behalf of myself and all the team here at "The Corner Pocket" may i just say a huge,

thank-you_zps5wwoils2.jpg

To everyone who came to last nights event and we hope you all had as good an evening as we did, from our "meeter and greeter" Jackie (on the door) who rather than let the side down braved feeling very under the weather to make it and with the aid of lots of paracetamol and Dunkirk spirit somehow managed to put in a full shift on frontline duties....excellent job!

To my fellow DJ's on the night firstly, Tony aka "Ado" who not only did a cracking warm up spot and really played some classy and under the radar soul and as well as that did me an excellent deal on some old school vinyl....Tony, you came you sold and went home with an empty box now that's the way to sell records.

In the absence of Derek (who was away in sunnier climes) both myself and Woody both pulled a double shift behind the decks Woody spots were and always to the highest standard from Northern standards to dance floor killer tunes that (and i'm saying this) one or two spins that are almost unheard of and of course that tell tale hint of R&B's that is very much his trade mark.

The nights guest DJ Tom Wheelhouse hit the floor (dance floor that is) running and did a solid hour of club favorites from high octane groovers to some cool soul shakers and even managed to blend in one or two semi left field choices into his spot as well, and as the saying goes "simple when you know how" well done that man !

And of course a special mention to Sue aka Miss T who's enthusiasm is always a pleasure to see and although the "killer heels" might have come off towards the end of the night her smile never did.

So once more from us all here at "The Corner Pocket" we look forward to seeing you all again next month and thank you for all your valuble support

So till then steady as you go.

Russ

Just wanted to say a personal thankyou to all the Team, to Ado & Russ, for their crackin' spots you were all awesome on Saturday. Not forgetting the "Ladies" on the door Jackie & Miss T, nice one Girls. Bit like an acceptance speech this init (lol).
    A big big thankyou to Tom, took over the decks at 10:30 (after a "great" spot by Russ) & totaly controled the dance floor for the next hour. People danced to every record, blended his tunes perfectly, with loads of club classics & a few of the Scene's currant top sounds, every one a dancer. The Leo Price & Manny Conchardo were "Fab" & the last one he ended with Spring Rain by "Silvettie" (which I have'nt heard for ages) went down a treat. .
Great to see you Tom, nice chatting & catching up earlier in the night.
  Last but by no means least, thanks a again to everyone old & new who came along to support us, including loads of new faces & great to meet the nice people who traveled all the way from Derby, glad you all had a good night Everyone.
  Next month we're joined by special guest DJ "Mark Taylor", from The Coronation Soul Club Armthorpe, Doncaster.
 Cheers Guys, see all out & about in the weekends to come, Woody & Miss T

P.S. Few photo's to follow as soon as we get them sorted......
