Bury Town Hall Virtual Allnighter

This Online Soul Event event has now ended

Event Information

Event Type: Online Soul Event

Event Date & Time:     

Event Description

The COVID-19 measures have left the Rare Soul scene littered with cancelled events and the faithful following home alone at the weekends; so the Bury Town Hall team have decided to launch a ‘virtual’ all-nighter. The show will be broadcast over internet radio every Saturday while we’re under lockdown from 20:00 until the early hours of Sunday morning.

The format will be just like a real event with a selection of DJs from previous and upcoming all-nighters at Bury Town Hall selecting their spots, carefully in order, from actual records they own to keep it real.

You can join us at https://www.radioking.com/radio/soulallniter

...and we also hope to be posting links for use with iTunes, Windows Media Player, Winamp, Real Player & Quick Time in the near future.
We hope you enjoy the show and it goes some way to filling the void and lifting your spirits

Very tempted to join the radio chat room Mick, but you serously don't need me in there - I don't generally do one sentence comments you know that! :D

It makes my eyes go funny and my brain hurt just trying to read the comments on there.  Soul-source is nice and comfortable - This along with texting folk is enough for me :wink:

I think this radio show is great for Sir Bob Hinsley - I've always loved his nighter sets, and I regularly hired him (and Robbo) to DJ for me over the years.  Not just for me that would be weird, no I mean at my events :huh:

There's a real presure for DJs in Sir Bob's league to 'deliver', as in, keep that dance floor full - They kind of have a 'job' to do that restricts them somewhat, which can be frustrating for them, because if they go too 'left field', doing so comes with the risk of looking like they are not doing what they are hired to do (I feel for them on that score)

So this radio show has given him (and others of course) 'licence' to show us what other gems he has, and is great that it is being really appreciatted and enjoyed by so many people.

Bob's been absolutely brilliant thoughout.

Len :thumbsup:

P.s - Mick, the above is why the radio chat room wouldn't suit :wink:

Don't worry Chris, lot's of us get the ol' butterflies before DJing, or releasing our sets to all those listening to the radio show :wink:

Hi Simon,

This chat room is sooooo much more relaxed than the 'oof ya 'ead' radio chat room - It's so hard to tell who's responding to who in there being as they're all 'going at it' so fast! :D

I seem to be in here pretty much on my own throughout the evening's proceedings, so there's no problem getting a word in :wink:

'The real' Len :thumbsup:

Hi Pete,

I'm doing good thanks mate.  This show is a real lift for us all, and I am so looking forward not only to seeing old friends again, but meeting some of the lovely folk who tune in.

It would be a fantastic Bury All-nighter if just a fraction of everyone turned up - I don't mean a fraction of each person, like an arm or a leg, or even just a head - I mean a fraction of the amount of people listening (Whole people)

......I think I waffle too much :huh: Mind you, I'm not on a parr with that Johnny Fingers bloke! (Don't tell him I said bless him)

'Verble Domino' - A pleasure to share :wink:

Len :thumbsup:

What you say to me is just between us Len.

Its good that people can hear whats played at Bury, in both rooms. When lockdowns over proper I think there will be a lot more interest in hearing fresh stuff, keeps the scene vibrant.

I was not aware that you waffled Len. Surely a mix up

They're now talking about 'The Casino' in the radio chat room. I hear a lot of talk about 'The Casino' - There must have been a real gambling problem back then, and at such a young age! :huh:

This show is soooo hard to walk away from - Damn you Simon with your 'Justa walkin' the dawg' silly ideas! I am meant to be a responsible adult, and have a family that I am completely ignoring every Sat night! Thank the lord they like 'BGT' ('Britain's Got Talent' not 'Bury's Got Talent' Johnny).....Your fault Simon! (again)

Go Jordan! I hope you are 'out of the dumps' now mate - We need you to keep all our spirits up :wink:

I need to have a 'Soul Mojo' removal operation - It's ironic that I thought I needed my 'Mojo' back, but said 'Mojo' is so destructive! Guess who's fault......Yeh that Simon (Another 'bloke') :pirate:

I now have an 'FBI most wanted' list of 'blokes'

1)  'Pseudo_Lenny'

2) Simon 

3) Johnny Fingers

Huge applause to all the key workers and frontliners who have kept us safe, and everyone who's been a part of the bury virtual allnighters who have kept us sane.

Respectfully jacko.

P.s. Can't wait for the alldayer.

5 Chris Penn had temporary incontinence last night

6 Rumours that Baz had joined Simon on the late night dog walking thing?

7 Nigel(do I not like this) was at his best last night!!

8 Pete Crampton should really be a Radio 2 presenter Smoooooooth!!

9 When Chris wasn't on the toilet,he played(for me anyway) the record of the night Jimmy Gresham!!

Well.. Where do I start ?? There was a certain air of expectancy leading up to last nights BGT – but that wasn’t the only thing in the air lol.. The DJ line-up was incredible.. and some chat room expressions of multiple visits to the men’s room prior to their designated time slots started to come from a couple of the nights spinners.. And who could blame them !! Having myself been faced with many a situation where I’m scheduled to follow a ‘Top Of Their Game’ DJ (Keith Money being one that always made me sweat with fear..) I empathised with their dread of having to follow what was obviously gonna be a night where some of the biggest hitting 45’s ever to grace Planet Soul were likely to be heard in the earlier hours sets.. and you have to try and follow their lead and match the quality effusing from the speakers.. Can someone pass the loo roll please !!

I’ve noticed over these last few weeks that, regardless of who is on the line-up, and whether they be £5 cheapies of £5000 mega 45’s.. It isn’t a case with these Bury virtual ‘niters of the bar getting raised each week – from the very first broadcast the bar was set at a height that even a giraffe could limbo under with ease !! No !! the one common factor involved – the one that results in each weeks show being so enjoyably addictive.. is Q-U-A-L-I-T-Y !!

Simon set the standard for last night’s performance, kicking off proceedings following the Early Doors Request Hour. He had obviously been busy at his loom as ‘The Weaver’ once again worked his magic,, this time producing something akin to The Turin Shroud.. Silky threads - from O C Tolbert’s ‘You Got Me Turned Around’ (which shares the same backing with Toby Lark’s ‘Sweep It Out Of The Shed’) and the Topics ‘Have your fun’ were intertwined with Irma & Larks 45 (same backing as the Cooperettes famed ‘Shing a Ling’) and The Inspirations ‘Gotta Find A New Love’.. Strengthened using a mix of Donna King’s Hot Line outing along with the likes of the Four Tracks Mandingo labelled ‘Like My Love For You’.. with the finishing touches provided via a trio of 70’s delights that included Chuck Cockerham’s immense Mala monster ‘Have I Got The Right’. Follow THAT you bast*ards.. lol

Phil Dick takes over the vinyl duties from Simon just after 9pm.. I don’t know Phil personally, or ever met him in person, but he is one of those collectors who’s reputation goes before them for housing some of the rarest 45’s the world over.. Phil happens to be one of those who surely must employ 24 hour Ninja-trained security in order to keep safe his enviable collection of monster rarities !! His 60 minutes were one hour I was very much looking forward to – and know I wasn’t alone in my anticipation of what was about to happen.. And I can’t see how anybody could deny that what Phil provided was record after record of a who’s who in the world of rare soul music.. From his first 45 of the night we were spoiled with tunes such as Jackie Day on Phelectron.. Johnny Praye.. Lonnie Russ.. Celebrities.. Lester Tipton.. Salvo after salvo of rare vinyl was thrown in our direction, including Phil’s All Time Top Three spins: Cheating Kind, Court Davis, and the Magnificent 7’s ‘She’s Like A Woman’..   And leaving us wanting more with his final 45.. Little Milton’s ‘I’m Gonna Cry A River.. All I can really say to that is.. WOW !! and Thank You !! Follow THAT you bast*rds !! lol again..

Just when you think you must have died and gone to heaven – it’s just after 10.. It’s ‘Sir Bob Hinsley Time’ !! Once again gracing the decks with selections of echelon proportions and providing a master class in the art of seamless dee-jaying.. Someone in the chat room hit the nail on the head when they commented that Sir Bob has been at the top of his game for years – a sentiment I for one defo echo, with awe-struck memories of some of his sets at gigs like The Ritz’s Rarest of The Rare back in the mid 90’s..  If Bob were a DJ back in biblical times I reckon he would easily have parted the Red Sea.. just with the level of respect afforded to him alone !! Holy Moses !! lol.. In addition to playing super soulful ditties such as the 5th Dimensions totally off the scale ‘I’ll Be Loving You For Ever’ and Sandra Wright’s ‘I’ll Come Running Back’, Bob included a couple of 45’s previously found languishing in ancient vaults.. Pied Piper’s Willie Kendrick’s otherwise unissued ‘She’ll Be Leaving You’ plus ‘I’m With You’ from September Jones.. With other offerings during his set including, to name but a couple, Karmello Brooks.. and a new one for me to add to the wants, Bobby Williams ‘Every Lie I Tell’ (how come I’d never come across that beauty before ??) it was time for Sir Bob to take a very well deserved bow as he made his revered departure from behind the decks with his last disc.. a brilliant and rare 45 courtesy of an artist I believe suffered from being in the shadow of her sister Pat.. Diane Lewis, with the Wand labelled ‘Without Your Love’.. NO WAY can you bast*rds follow that !! Chuckle chuckle..

It’s now 11 at night and it’s time for a display courtesy of one of those found imbibing Imodium throughout the evening.. Chris Penn !! I’d not before heard Chris DJ so wasn’t at all sure what to expect – but certainly sympathetic to his apparent nervousness at having to follow that which had gone before !! I think I would have long crumpled under the building pressure, and be found babbling inanely in a corner somewhere, if it were me going on now !! Off he goes.. First option.. Volumes ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’ followed quickly by George Pepp !! Eh ?? Really ?!? Has Mr Penn been on the wind up all this time ?? Cleveland Robinson ‘Love Is A Trap’.. The Martells.. Chris had lured us in with his attempt to garnish sympathy for his supposed ‘dilemma’ and had seemingy been pulling our legs somewhat I think.. while nonchalantly throwing on 45’s like Ed Bruce’s mega scarce ‘We’re Gonna Have A Party’ and The Just Bro’s ‘Carlena’ !! You’re ‘avin a laugh Mr Penn, ain’t you !! lol.. Chris mixed it up by interspersing classics with some 70’s & x-over and throwing in a few early NY productions for good measure, ending his allotted time with the incredible Ty Karim and ‘You Really Made It Good To Me’. What I enjoyed about Chris was his obvious passion for ONLY buying 45’s he loves – as opposed buying for ‘the floor’. This was evident with his statement surrounding his choice of Willie Small on Essica – a 45 known to many for donkeys years but a tune Chris had been recommended and unknown by him only 18 months prior.. full Kudos for your frankness and refreshing honesty.. No ‘Dick Waving’ where Chris is concerned.. just good honest quality soul music.. rare or common, expensive or peanuts.. It matters not in Chris’s house.. Well Done mate..

The Witching Hour is now upon us – it’s midnight, and time for Les Harrison to poop his pants !! lol.. Les was another seemingly overwhelmed by the prospect of having to start his broadcast after listening to some of the best soul music ever produced being played before him.. But this is Les we are talking about here.. a suitable moniker being, I think anyway’ ‘Mr Dance, Dance, Dance’.. Cos you know if Les is on the line-up your legs are gonna be cursing you the next day - that’s for certain !! He obviously gave it some thought as to just how he was going to follow the previous providers of soul by producing an initial ‘musical pause’.. ie. A couple of tunes to allow peeps to regain their composure and let them settle back down.. Then.. BOOM !! Strap yourselves in folks.. We have LIFT OFF !! Curley Moore on Sansu.. Big Daddy Rogers.. Danny Woods on Correctone.. Les was driving his set forward through a juggernaut of movers.. with each offering dragging you back to dance when your feet don’t think they can stand much more !! Syng McGowan followed by Cliff Nobles ‘My Love Is Getting Stronger, Rufus Thomas’s ‘Memphis Train’ immediately took me back to dancing around our front room as a 12 year old.. Followed by Bill Withers’ ‘Harlem’ Les.. Stop It !! I can’t take much more lol.. But Les being Les plies us relentlessly with dancer after dancer.. mixing it up with classics like Frank Del on Valise and the Falcons ‘Good Good Feelin’.. He certainly provided us all with that Good Good Feeling for his 60 minutes !!

Once the last notes of Les’s final 45 had faded away, I decided I too needed to take my leave as it was now 1am, and the exertions of my time at the allotment earlier in the day – and the need for me to return again this morning, resulted in my wishing the listeners a very good night, and leaving them in the hands of young Jordan, and then Robbo, to finish off another chapter in the Virtual Bury Allnighter’s Book of Class Soul Music.. A ‘MUST READ’ for every follower of real soul music..

And so another episode comes to an end.. and each of the DJ’s should give themselves a pat on the back for leaping over, with ease, that Limbo Pole Of Soul..

Next Saturday will be interesting !! (I’m saying nothing, lol).. But until then.. Stay Indoors (but go out lol), Stay Safe.. above all.. STAY SOULFUL !!

A couple of tunes to allow peeps to regain their composure and let them settle back down.. Then.. BOOM !! Strap yourselves in folks.. We have LIFT OFF !! Curley Moore on Sansu.. Big Daddy Rogers.. Danny Woods on Correctone.. Les was driving his set forward through a juggernaut of movers.. with each offering dragging you back to dance when your feet don’t think they can stand much more !! Syng McGowan followed by Cliff Nobles ‘My Love Is Getting Stronger, Rufus Thomas’s ‘Memphis Train’ immediately took me back to dancing around our front room as a 12 year old.. Followed by Bill Withers’ ‘Harlem’ Les.. Stop It !! I can’t take much more lol.. But Les being Les plies us relentlessly with dancer after dancer.. mixing it up with classics like Frank Del on Valise and the Falcons ‘Good Good Feelin’.. He certainly provided us all with that Good Good Feeling for his 60 minutes !!

Once the last notes of Les’s final 45 had faded away, I decided I too needed to take my leave as it was now 1am, and the exertions of my time at the allotment earlier in the day – and the need for me to return again this morning, resulted in my wishing the listeners a very good night, and leaving them in the hands of young Jordan, and then Robbo, to finish off another chapter in the Virtual Bury Allnighter’s Book of Class Soul Music.. A ‘MUST READ’ for every follower of real soul music..

And so another episode comes to an end.. and each of the DJ’s should give themselves a pat on the back for leaping over, with ease, that Limbo Pole Of Soul..

Next Saturday will be interesting !! (I’m saying nothing, lol).. But until then.. Stay Indoors (but go out lol), Stay Safe.. above all.. STAY SOULFUL !!

I believe we're sharing the virtual decks next week Johnny,can't wait should be another goodun' and what a write up mate,what can I say!!

Another great night and sets.Managed  to listen in from 7 till 10.20 pm. A break watching motd then till 1pm. Not really a nighter for me but I'm enjoying what I hear x

 

 

I watched the MOTD best premiership goals this morning.We were spoilt again last night and another vinyl purchase for less than a tenner from Phil D's set can't be bad!!

Simon hasn't yet informed me of which other DJ's I'm faced with next week Mick.. Probably so that I don't go and O.D. on Imodium.. I'm already experiencing a nasty odour emanating from my nether regions !! lol

I don't think there are a lot more plaudits I can add that have already been very well covered, other than to say that it was musically superb from start to finish, which was a 3-30am departure on my own part,and furthermore the virtual company in the radio chatroom was lively as per usual and a welcome distraction from everyday life!                  Looking forward to next Saturday..........Cheers wilxy

You can somewhat 'rest easy' Johnny as Simon has pulled me off taken me off the subs bench for the first half of next week's match.

Ok, I'll pick you up on my way again, but I must warn you - There's now something wrong with my car CD player, it only plays on full volume so I won't be able to hear a word you're saying.  We'll have to have a chat when we get there.....

A truly entertaing evening once again last night - Thanks to all for your eforts :wink:

Len :thumbsup:

Once again the Music at Bury was outstanding .I particularly enjoy the cheapies and curve ball tunes thrown in there .All the guys spinning have expensive tunes but price and quality is not always a match on our scene .Its so great to have quality cheapies dropped in to sets .Respect to all the DJs and Simon and all involved in putting their precious time into these events

Cheeers Les.. That's the kind of support I was always used to, and will make me feel right at home so.. Thank You !! 🤣

I know it's dangerous - but I've just had a thought..

Who is gonna do the review for next weeks production ?!?  I would more than happily volunteer.. But I get a feeling that one particular Soul Spinner might result in the best critique of a set in the entire history of Rare Soul - regardless of the crap he plays.. with all other DJ's spins paling into insignificance and appearing a bunch of complete novices in comparison - even if they were to play THE best & rarest 45's on the planet !! 

Just saying like.. 🙃
