Bury Town Hall Virtual Allnighter

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 21:00 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

It's been great all night.  I just texted Simon that I am really, and I mean really, enjoying Bob's set, and that this radio outlet has been good for our Bob - He's just playing awesome stuff.

God love him :wink:

Every week I've been in touch with many freinds texting throughout the nights.  Tonight I got sent a photo of Shinehead (who used to write for Manifesto Magazine) and his lovely wife Pat.  The photo was of them currenty in their kitchen dressed up and enjoying the show - They entitled it 'Pensioners in Lock-down'.

It was lovely to see, but tinged with a touch of sadness - We all really do miss each other.....

'Coming out to play' again is gonna be so special - Not only meeting up with old friends again, but also meeting new friends that we have met through this radio show :wink:

Well another great show/niter the weeks have absolutely flown. I think we all knew the amount of work to put on a weekly event of this size and all the work that entails,was not sustainable!! It has left us with a whole raft of "new to me/not heard this in ages tunes" which is surely what it's all about?

I think the monthly events as the lockdown measures ease,gives us something to look forward to and keeps it fresh. Also given the comments and feedback in the chatroom,the first "live" event is going to be a packer!!

Len,will also be giving out details of the mid week support groups to help "I'm addicted to Bury Virtual Niter " to run in tandem with myself and Chris Penn's new venture "I'm a right nob 'ead can't believe I sold that £20 record and now it's four figures"   

Bury Town Hall Virtual Nighter team,take a bow,WHOOSH,BOOM!!!

I would like to add my thanks and congratulations on putting on these weekly events, even though I probably missed the first 6 or so nighters, thanks to Pete C for flagging up.   I'm in a different position than most, but definitely not all, in that I haven't been to a live do of any sort for approx 15 years.  Given my location I'm not sure that will change.  However what I can say is it his rekindled my love for this music and introduced me to some amazing sounds. Until the next do the 24hr loop will be the background to my working day.

  Stay safe and Soulful folks.

Neil

We don't usually drink when we go dancing (not a good look on the dancefloor)! We have though raised a glass (or two) to everyone who, like us, have enjoyed every minute of the bury virtual allnighter experience.

Already looking forward to july. 

Thanks all, Thejackos.

So we are moving to end of month now for BVA.
That will make folks even more hungry for it.
Such a great effort has been made by Simon and Crew over the last 15 weeks.
It's not ending just metamorphosing.

Here's to the future,     Tom.

As with all comments above, my appreciation for the work that has gone into this. Lots of new sounds heard during the last few months alongside the familiar tunes. It has certainly made a big difference during a challenging time and while it will be great when, eventually, we can actually get back out to events, this has definitely filled a gap that maybe we didn't realise existed before we had ever heard of covid. Take a bow, organisers and spinners! :hatsoff2:

Its been a magnificent effort from Simon and everyone concerned to give everyone a top quality virtual all-nighter EVERY week for free.  Some fantastic sounds over this time.  
 

Take a bow Simon, top job extremely well done.

With the previous seven days see not only my Paypal account hacked, but a notice received on Monday informing me that the financial institution my business uses for the factoring of our invoices had gone into administration,  I was having one of my can't be bothered days yesterday - not helped by the fact that our little trip to the beach mid-week left me with the tops of my feet burnt and swollen, unable to move about with ease !! It's that ridiculous it's funny - especially each time I attempt climbing or descending the two narrow spiral staircases that separate the floors of my cottage.. Hilarious 🤣 If I wasn't so embarrassed I'd post a pic in order everyone cold share in my mirth..

Added to the above was the annoyance of forgetting to take my meds the night before.. which contain a necessary sedative ingredient (not sleeping tablets) designed to get me to sleep, with the result seeing me hobbling around my cottage (feet.. lol), up and down, up and down - and even tried a shuffle along my road.. before finally getting some shut-eye around 5 in the morning !! So I kind of already knew that I was unlikely to tune in to the BVA - or log in to partake in the chat-room frivolities..

Having ensured I took my meds as usual, and with the tiredness from the night before, I felt I just wanted a night to myself in that I didn't want to be up all night - and wasn't in the best mood for conversation, and actually retired soon after 10pm !! 

Having watched the footy until it's conclusion around 8 o'clock, and a bit of sustenance, I did actually set up the laptop in my bedroom to tune in for a short while - and watched the early shenanigans and exchanges of banter in the radio king chat-room.. So whilst only hearing around half of Mick's Soulful Platters - I DID hear every single one (again.. completely new, I think) of this weeks offerings from God Baz M !! Well.. it would've been rude of me not too, eh !! Whilst I didn't make any notes, I especially enjoyed him spinning The Moonlighter's 'Lonely Baby' 45 as not heard that in well over a decade - and even then, usually at home playing the copy I owned at the time.. Also didn't expect to hear a tune my wife first put me on to after she purchased a copy around '93/'94.. the super smooth Bootleggers (feat. Kathy Carlson ??) 'Don't Count On Tomorrow'.. a fabulous record featuring a 'lady' on the vocals.. not those shrieking girly-type leads found on a lot of the female 6t's output of the time.. And typical of the types of disc my wife collected.. LADIES of soul.. Betty Wilson on Dayco being another good example (with her taste in male vocals extending the quality of her purchases even further with things like Bill Bush on Ronn !!).. And when Baz threw in those Beat Ballads I was almost sorry my mood didn't encourage me sufficiently to want to stay up longer.. But it didn't !! lol

So no 'take' on last nights little vinyl platters of delight from me this week - but hopefully my sore feet saga will create a chuckle or two..

I can only echo the sentiments of so many others in what these past weeks of the BVA's have meant, and - whilst it will be missed each week, I feel the Production Team have got it spot on with their decision to now run once a month, until the doors at the Town Hall are allowed to open once more.. Also.. the Team involved in keeping us sane these past 16 weeks SHOULD, really, be invited to Buck Palace and bestowed with a suitable honour for what they created and achieved.. I do SERIOUSLY believe that.. and maybe a 'Booker Prize' for Services To Mankind !! 

I think it's a no-brainer when the first 'live' gig is eventually allowed.. the queues to get in will see more people than witnessed the other day on Bournemouth Beach !! And I, for one, will look forward to entering those hallowed doors and losing myself in the music of 'The Northern Soul Scene... Part III' that Bury will become famous for !!

I also look forward to being able to meet up, and interact, with all the other Bury Soul Children Of The Night.. Can't Wait - See you all there.. 👍

Was an excellent night, can't think of a bad set through out the whole 15 shows. Been a game changer for lots of us and really looking forward to getting out again. As said the 1st bury should be a packer and rightly so for the time, effort and dedication to entertaining us all. Hats off to Simon as I know he been up to his ears with this and work, your a legend mate 👍 and thanks to all the djs for there time as well.

That Ila Van you played sounded fekin' great !! As did Baz's Endeavours - forgot I heard that (is it a two-sider ??), Sir Bob's selection of the Porgy & Monarchs mis-press 'Hey Girl' would defo have rocked my boat - as would The Masters, played by Len, if I was there to hear it !! And would really have liked to hear the Mar-J's in Ian's set - not heard that since selling my own copy, and one I wouldn't mind replacing..

Careful with that one soulman, a sitting target for diy job discussions and fitted kitchen budgetlng. Before committing to the settee, it pays to have an urgent matter which might require attention at any given time in reserve. oh and by the way was that a record list that arrived yesterday? 🤐

I'm starting a petition  to reinstate the nighters. The last one on Saturday coincided with my starting back to work yesterday.  Goes to work at 7am , only to be told by the MD that I was furloughed two weeks ago until October. 

They forgot to tell me.  They hadn't even told my engineering manager. 

So ask a consequence i can stay up on Saturday nights without having to worry about being knucking  fackered on Mondays.

Hey everyone :thumbup:

Firstly let me repeat my message of thanks to one-and-all for the fantastic support you've given the V.A.N. (now an official initialism I think?) since 21st March - in total 15 weeks of making memories and many new friends;  I can honestly say I've loved every minute of it.

It feels like we achieved what we set out to do all those weeks ago, which was to fill the void left by the lack of live soul events - in fact it surpassed all our expectations and became a vehicle for the DJs to dig deep and share quality tracks that many of us have never heard played out.....perhaps without the pressure of keeping a dancefloor going it is a perfect media to break records in record time?

The decision to move to a monthly event wasn't an easy one and I have to admit I'm racked with guilt, but it had to happen due to the time and effort involved in getting a show ready every week, good news is I will be uploading all the historic sets into Mixcloud (will post up here in SoulSource as they get done) and the station will run 24/7 with a library of tunes we've aired on the show so far.

We haven't decided exactly on the format of the monthly show yet but I will be posting up the event here soon - and of course the All-Request section JUST HAS to stay part of it, we may even extend the slot so don't be shy!

In the mean-time, as suggest by our very own Martin Leach; there's no reason we can't all log into the radioking chatroom on a Saturday night to catch up.

Lastly there will be some news about the Bury Town Hall all-nighter (real-time) in the next few weeks so keep an eye out for the announcement.

Thanks again everyone - see you in the chatroom sometime soon

Simon :wave:
