First one of the newly introduced "vinyl" events for 2016 (Not to be confused with the popular Saturday afternoon events!!!)

A small but enthusiastic crowd were in attendance and were treated to a very eclectic mix of quality Soul from all the DJs, all of which reached in to the very back of their boxes as well as playing a few well knowns...

This event deserves a bigger following, doesn't usually clash with anything else, and all played on original vinyl.

what I played, in no particular order;

1st half hour

David Ruffin-You can come right back to me

Joe Murphy-So Blue without you

Jnr Walker-Gotta hold on to this feeling


Bobby Bland-Shoes

Temptations-Why did she have to leave me

Judy Clay & William Bell-Private Number

Originals-Ooh you put a crush on me

Bobby Bland-Yum Yum tree


Stevie Wonder-Contract on love

Spyder Turner-I can't take it any more

Chuck Jackson-Hand it over


2nd half hour

Jackey Beavers-lover come back

Marvin Smith-Who will do your running now

Otis Redding- 634-5789

Syl Johnson-I've got to get over

Patty and the Emblems-Mixed up shook up girl

Uniques-Not too long ago

Bobby Reed-You are

Shang-There she goes

Marshall and the Chi-Lites-Pretty Girl

Chimes-Beginning of my life

Drifters-There goes my Baby

Festivals-You've got the makings of a lover

Four Tops-I like everything about you

Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell-If I could build my whole world around you

Well said Steve,

Too be honest to say it was a dull, damp and pretty miserable Sunday in January (still in the throws of post Christmas and New Year blues) the numbers were great if you take that into consideration.

**** Being as honest as I can simply and down to the attendence numbers my rating might seem a little harsh but it's based on this factor (and this only!) everything else was excellent.

Great Job by Jarvo who hit on a great formula for the day keeping things on a very smooth and relaxed basis and the 30 minute spots worked a treat, thanks to my fellow DJ's on the day...Steve Myres, JAS and Jarvo who all brought something a tad different to the decks and a special mention going to Danny "W" for his support on the day and of course most importantly everyone who came to this new event that has all the makings of a great Sunday afternoon of soul and with your support it can be a real 5 star event!

Many thanks to Jarvo for asking me to be this months guest DJ and giving me a chance to perhaps play some of those "back of the records" that don't seem to get that many plays today...
