WOW what can I say, The Old Whitworth Street Magic was definitely in attendance yesterday!

A long with the 100's of people that loved every minute of it, the atmosphere was electric! Great to see all the people from the Blackpool Soul Club and the 20 people who travelled up from Birmingham who had a ball, and the Jersey Crew along with everybody who travel the length and breadth of the country twice a month. It was a fantastic day as always, and I lost count of the people who said how much that had enjoyed it, and said Pete this place is the Pinnacle!

And it makes me smile that another place, says that their club is the best Sunday event in the North West? That a very bold statement to make, I wonder if that's because he plays a few records there.

A Big thanks to our Guest Dj Yocky who did a great job, and great to see Mandy looking so well (love the hair) wish it was mine.  And to John and Jock for keeping both rooms bouncing all day.

Our next Sunday Afternoon Soul Session at The Twisted Wheel Club is Sunday 30th October with our Guest Dj Mr Ginger Taylor so it goes without saying another guaranteed day for you.

 Hope see you all then, your the Best.

I see Picasso has been at it again, spitting bile because he isn't allowed to sell his same old prints in the Wheel and trying to get himself some company and do harm to the place that he made the majority of his money.

How sick must they be when, despite their efforts to re-direct people to other places, they hear that the Wheel was full with people having a great time, and that they are only missed for the best reasons, and everybody says it!

What is laughable is that Picasso is still trying to sell his wares on the back of The Twisted Wheel Club! He has even had Snide WHITWORTH STREET road signs made now! A Club that he calls and where he isn't welcome or allowed to visit.

Bitter and very twisted comes to mind, WHY?... Can't he just move on and get a life and stop spreading his Shite on facebook, and why not concentrate on making prints of the FREE PUBS that he likes to advertise on Wheel Sundays,

Another re-director 'Cockatoo Head' is upset because he is not liked at the Wheel and is not allowed to take his holdall full of booze in the Club, which he buys his facebook friends with. And how sad is it that he and others pay to travel to Manchester on Twisted Wheel Club Sundays just go in FREE PUBS! Haven't they got pubs where they live or where they come from? Or do they see them coming and move them along too.

i thought all this about sunday free venues had been put to rest seem's you want to carry it on   so why didnt you say something about this at the festival get together  you had plenty of time any way you never even went to the wheel but i did   theres plenty of roo9m for free venues all you care about is the entrance fee

Good Afternoon Mr. Ironmonger.

Firstly last night, I didn't have a clue who you were when you spoke to me at the Printworks. I have never seen you in my life before.

Fortunately we live in a free country where we can all make our own choices. I am not having a go about free pubs or any other free venues, I am having a go at the people who try to re-direct  customers away from my Club! And YES people have to pay to come into the Wheel, the Club I have run very successfully and is now in its "17th year". It has to be paid for, ie: RENTING THE CLUB - THE DOOR SECURITY x 2 - PROFESSIONAL KNOWN DJ'S WHO GET PAID WELL FOR THEIR SERVICES!

So you can see that the people that I'm having a go at, as you put it, are the people who are spitting bile and telling lies about the Club!

As for me not going to the Wheel - I did. I first went in 1968 and how would you know if I did or I didn't? And what would it matter if I didn't?

I have run a successful business from it for almost 17 years with a lot more to come, I think a lot of this is the "Green Eyed Monster" Yes. I'm aware jealousy must be a terrible thing! The problem is:- Wouldn't a lot of other people have liked to have done what I have done!

As for you personally, I don't care and I am not interested as to who plays records in a pub or any other venue. So why should I wish to confront you or anybody else at a thank you night at the Printworks?

Unlike some of the people you may or may not listen to, I have always been into Soul Music from being a kid at school, and I did go to a lot of the Soul Clubs in Manchester. Shock Horror even the Twisted Wheel Club!

So it isn't a Big Deal to me, like it is to some people! I have got a life , and it's not the New Bingo.

So I hope this answers your question.

Pete Roberts.
