I spent the weekend in Manchester staying with a friend, had a lovely time. As part of the weekend we went to the Sunday session of the weekender at the Ark. It's a large bar on two floors, ground floor was the Northern room, downstairs there was a bar playing more modern soul sounds, and another room playing upfront sounds. Due to the lack of chairs in the upfront room we spent most of the time in the Northern room.

We got in just gone 4 pm, mainly better known oldies being played but what I'd describe as a thoughtful selection. As per usual I would sit and drink and chat and all of a sudden jump up and head for the dance floor when I heard something that made me want to move. A good selection was played, well done to all the DJs, but as usual my memory has let me down.

I was most pleased when an old friend, Sue Parker, came in. I hadn't seen her for a while and we had a good catch up.

Despite plans to get the last tram we stayed till about 11.35, had to get a taxi to Piccadilly Gardens to get the last bus back to Bury. Shows that we enjoyed the music and company.

Well done to the organisers.

Absolutely top class all weekend, brilliant cross section of sounds played in every venue...hats off to the organisers for pulling all this together and also for them letting me loose on the decks...cracker of a weekend that I'm still recovering from
