6ts Weekenders, but not as you know it

what are the details re DJs?

I doubt there'll be many changes at all but Phil & Neil will sort out when they've recovered from Detroit.

Good luck to all concerned....

Not sure if it's out of fashion now....but to hear the likes of Jock Mitchell belting out the tunes up close and personal is the icing on the cake.

Carolyn Crawford was brill at last year's Detroit gig.
