I haven't listened to the show but I do know Eric Knowles personally as he was the fellow of my antiques degree course at university.

There was a thread on here a few years back saying how Eric was a northern soul DJ, had an unbelievable record collection and knowledge to match. He hasn't.

I know he hasn't because I asked him.

He has about a hundred 45's and the extent of his northern soul knowledge is Joy Lovejoy and Ramsey Lewis.

That said, he does love R&B and soul music, only not in the same way we do.

He is a lovely, lovely man with the most incredible memory.

What a shame he wastes it on old pots when he could be doing something useful like remembering the matrix numbers on thousands of 45s :sad:

I agree always come across as a very nice bloke on The Antiques Roadshow, i think mentioned northern soul on there once as well.

He was involved in the Burnley Cricket Club soul nights circa 70/71 along with a good friend of mine Geoff Salter...who has a cracking record collection....David

Dont feel guilty for posting. I actually listened to this last night and he admitted he only had a handful of 45's and now bought comp CD's but he did speak with a passion about the Mecca, Catacombs etc etc and the Soul scene in the early 70's.

Wasnt too bad to listen to.

smile.gif thank you for your reply it makes posting feel worthwhile ,as you listen to the interview on radio stoke it is funny trying put a face to a voice that talks with so much enthusiasm about his early n.soul experiences

There was a thread on here about this a while ago that said Eric was a DJ at Burnley Cricket Club and that he had a fantastic collection.

I asked him about this and he said he definitely did not run it or DJ, but did say something about a birthday party?

He also said the reason he stopped going to soul do's was because of all the other stuff involved :thumbsup:

I agreed with him of course.

Why feel guilty?

It is of interest. I love talking about soul music and old pots, never happier :thumbsup:

He really does love soul music. He told me he was asked to do Desert Island Discs or a similar radio show and that all the records he chose were soul and R&B.

Like I said, a very interesting man. Maybe we should invite him along to a soul do sometime!
