Hi Guys

Yes! we will be there as usual. Will be great to see Sam again on the decks.

We will be selling tickets for the MARVIN SMITH concert at the Wilton on Saturday 15th November, so if you are wanting

tickets for this event pick them up at Boomerang at £20 and save yourselves paypal and postal charges.

See you there.

Dave & Val & Kath

Great idea, Dave and Val.  Likely to be another sellout for the Wilton too.


Soul Sam phoned tonight and is really looking forward to returning to the decks - especially at BOOMERANG and for his annual birthday get-together.   Steve Guarnori is one of Sam's closest friends so  it's extra special to have him guesting on the decks, bringing along a fraction of his mind-blowing vinyl collection.   

...only 6 more sleeps, can't wait!!!

Good news Maria, he's been missed. Should be a good'un, some of my favourite DJs and a chance to see loads ofmy friends. And of course a nice meal at the Tavern.

Not long now, hope Sam's ok, he didn't make Radcliffe on Saturday, so he's obviously not 100% yet. Seems we're going early (4pm) so we can have a bite to eat, anyone thinking the same a word of warning, the pie's are fabulous but a slice is enormous, I indulged 2 years ago at Sam's Birthday bash and then spent 2 hours walking it off up and down the Canal towpath :facepalm: , so highly recommended but with a caution sticker and no I won't make the same mistake, where's that Lite Bite's Menu? :g: 

Spot. :shades:

Try the vegi fahitas mate they are superdupa 8-)

Arthur,  blasphemy, the two words don't go together, Veg & Meal, WHAT NO MEAT :facepalm: , I'd sooner walk up & down the Canal sidings than eat Peppers & the like but thanks for the tip, I'm sure I'll find something to lay lightly on the old Ken Hom Wok belly. :shhh: 

See ya Saturday, that'll be me by the Narrow Boats, Spot. :shades:

Great night at Thorne, really was.  Sam back behind the decks and on form once again, looking more like his old self and it's good to see.  Great music by all the DJ's, lots of beer and a good laugh with like minded folk, what more do you want.

Sitting here with Soul Sam who's a little lost for words - says he's better on the mic as he then thinks carefully about what to play, but instinctively knows what to say.   In short, he would very much like to thank everyone who came last night and added "it's great to be back on the scene".


A huge thanks also from Boomerang  for making his birthday party so special.  It was a steamy busy night with great friendly people there, many still dancing on the floor and carpet when the lights went on at 1am for the last few sounds.  Special hello to Jo & Andy who were first in at 4pm and last to leave too.

Once again a great alldayer, really good to see Soul Sam back, enthusiastic as ever. Loads of sounds new to me, plus old favourites. Sterling work from the other DJs, and thanks for playing my requests. It was a very hot afternoon and evening, a bit quiet to start with but filled up nicely.


Thanks for posting Sam's playlist Maria, I hope the other DJs put their playlists up, like to know the tunes I didn't recognise. An enjoyable meal that we ate in the room, didn't want to miss anything.


Nice to see Mike Hodges again, thanks for your company, and to the Canal staff for the most enjoyable Moroccan lamb meal, very tasty. And of course thanks to Maria for her hard work in running Boomerang with Arthur's assistance. Still my favourite soul night.

Agree with Geoff & Karl, a great night musically & socially and how fabulous to see Martin up behind the decks again jigging, swaying & tweaking. Great to hear the "Pages" played out along with Eddie Whitehead plus Teddy Pendergrass one I knew but didn't know, if you know what I mean and how nice was it too see the place full, deservedly so. Only thing that peeved me a little was a women leaving at the end of the night complaining she couldn't listen anymore as that wasn't Soul music :facepalm: , she was talking of Sam's last 5 records, have a look above :g: , I almost pmsl. :lol: 

Till November, take care, be safe & remember,"If this ain't Soul, I don't know what is",

                                                                                                                                                                  Spot. :shades:
