    Sad to hear that KH is closing well done to Carl for keeping the Northern Soul flag flying high in Mansfield,a great town with Soul traditions.There's no doubt some promoter will be at The KH like a shot to carry on the format.Who ever it maybe,I know the charity trust value their Northern nights has special.

    Great guy Jimmy,always kept his cards close,rarely expressed himself over tunes.lve known Jim since the 70ts if I remember Jimmy rarely attended soul night's if any in the 70ts,met up with him again late nineties at a local colliery.I at the time obtained a few Mp3 s with over 1000 + tracks on,Millionaires only groovesville stuff etc.Jimmy also had the same 20 quid.Briefly met Jimmy in a local Boozer soon after at the Anvil Mansfield Woodhouse with his cowboy boots & Stetson on.& believe it or not he didn't look like a Div.To this day I think he's still on the Fairground.

    In my experience over the years you would travel to hear tunes that certain djs would play.Now anyone can take a bunch of played out oldies & fill any dance floor.Surely the scene wasn't based on this ?or maybe it suits the masses.

    I would imagine owning a very expensive tune that's been broken or knicked would do it.Agree with Ask the lonely though.

    Rob & Chris Marriott certainly educated me with Northern Tunes way outside the So called Top 500 Northern sounds.Rob is missed on the scene today.Still got tapes from them both.
