WHAT A FANTASTIC TURN OUT AT THE TWISTED WHEEL CLUB YESTERDAY!

It really was,... With a lot of the Wheel regulars on the missing list, going to Blackpool and having family BBQ's etc.

Just been laughing with people on the phone, who said "You where right about soft lad that he would hold back until a Wheel post went up!" 

I did write a long post on yesterday, but I'm having massive problems with this IPad.

A BIG THANKS AGAIN FOR YESTERDAY, IT WAS FANTASTIC.

Best Regards.

Pete Roberts.

ANOTHER TOP DJ ON AT THE TWISTED WHEEL CLUB!..WHERE ELSE.

Ginger Taylor will be joining us at the Club that he loves, doing both rooms on Sunday the 12th June. Ginger will be playing his favourites from the Wheel in the Whitworth Street room, and in room 2 playing his Northern Soul & Rare Classics.

A Big Thanks to you all for your attendance at the last Wheel on Sunday May 29th  it was Fantastic Afternoon and the Club was packed, just think how it would of been if a lot of the Wheel regulars wasn't on the missing list by going to Blackpool and having family BBQ's.

PAUL DAVIES who was our guest Dj on the day did us proud with a great set! Paul and I did the Whitworth St. Room and John & Jock had the floor bouncing all day in room 2 with a great mix of Northern, Mod, & RnB Classics.

There was a Lot of old faces from Whitworth St. There on the day, and they said to me Pete it's been FANTASTIC, you have had PAUL DAVIES the King of the Wheel Dj's on here today, and it was great to see him again.

FRANK BOOPER the Legendary Wheel Dancer in attendance, and also it was great to see PHIL SCOTT the man who co - wrote the Fantastic Wheel Book - called CENtral 1179. ( that was the Old Wheels telephone number in the 1960's )               THE STORY OF MANCHESTERS FAMOUS TWISTED WHEEL CLUB.

A Big Thank You again for all your support over the last 16 years!

People was asking me if they needed tickets for the Wheels 16th Anniversary of its the Wheels Second coming on Sunday 10th July?

NO, WE ARE NOT DOING TICKETS - I WAS THEN ASKED HOW THEN WILL WE ALL FIT INTO THE CLUB? ..... I REPLIED WITH A SHOE HORN.

Looking forward to seeing you all on Sunday 12th June with Dj Ginger Taylor.

Best Regards.

Pete Roberts.

Welcome to the TWISTED WHEEL CLUB @ ALTER EGO SUNDAY SOUL Comments sectiom

This event is now over. Look up now to read the latest reviews of this soul event

IT'S TWINE TIME' .... AND NOT TO BE MISSED ON BANK HOLIDAY SUNDAY 29th MAY, WITH THE RETURN OF ORIGINAL DJ PAUL DAVIES FROM THE TWISTED WHEEL CLUB AT 6. WHITWORTH STEET. PAUL WAS THE YOUNGEST AND LONGEST SERVING DJ AT THE WHEEL FROM 1968 TILL IT SADLY CLOSED IN 1971. AND THEN PAUL CONTINUED TO Dj FOR A FURTHER 3 YEARS FOR THE ABADI BROTHERS, WHEN THEY OPENED PLACEMATE 7 CLUB, AT THE OLD WHEEL BUILDING, IN THE 1970's.

PAUL DAVIES WAS NOT ONLY A DJ AT THE WHEEL, BUT HE WAS THE MAN WHO WENT EVERY SATURDAY TO BARRY'S RECORD RENDEZVOUS SHOP, TO BUY THE RECORDS ON THE ABADI'S ACCOUNT, THAT MADE MANCHESTER'S TWISTED WHEEL CLUB SO FAMOUS!

I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING PAUL AGAIN, AND I KNOW A LOT OF OTHER PEOPLE ARE.

IT'S GOING TO BE A PACKER!

Pete Roberts.

On Original Vinyl?

On Original vinyl?.... Is there any other way of playing them?

I can tell you there are NO £10 PRESSINGS OR BOOTS at the Wheel and never have been! - and all on ORIGINAL BRITISH RECORDS where possible.

Hi Derek & Timb

Your right, it will be a FANTASTIC DAY AT THE WHEEL on Sunday as always!

And I know PAUL DAVIES is really looking forward to his return, glad you like Paul's Dj set for Sunday, as you know that's just the tip of the iceberg of the records that we play and made MANCHESTERS TWISTED WHEEL CLUB so famous

Paul was not only the youngest Wheel Dj but the man who brought & introduced all the Fantastic Live Artists to that little stage at the Wheel All-Nighters at Whitworth Street in the 60's.

JR. WALKER - EDWIN STARR - IKE & TINA TURNER - BEN E KING - JIMMY RUFFIN to name but a few! ... Paul was a big mate of the late Jimmy Ruffin for years, ask him about it on Sunday.

See you all on Sunday.

Best Regards.

Pete.

THE MIDDLESBROUGH SOUL CREW

Hi Tracy

Looking forward to seeing you all again on Sunday at the Wheel.

I'm NOT on Facebook, but I got your message that your Hotel and Train Tickets are booked, so we must be doing something right!

A Big thank you, and to all the others who travel the length and breadth of the country to join us for our Legendary Sunday Afternoon Soul Sessions!

Which everybody is trying to copy.

LIKE EVERYBODY SAYS -

THE WHEEL IS OFTEN IMITATED BUT NEVER EVER DUPLICATED.

See you all tomorrow in the Basement.

Pete.
