Sad but great send off.

Caught up with some old friends. again sadly at a funeral.

Salmon would not of believed the turn out, or think he was quite this popular! But he was, and tributes paid to him were heartfelt.

 

Gone but never forgotten mate.

Glad to hear Salmon got the send of you all wanted for him....X One of my happiest gigs the Hollinwood Club and went whenever asked....super folk and nights....X Amother livly guy was Dave Boycott... We stayed friends long after I quit DJing on the scene and up until his early untimely death whilst abroad. If Salmon went to the Hollinwood....then we met as such. I hope so because at least then I had a chance to make a night 'happy' for him and his own too........X

...The last time we were together after i'd left DJing on the Northern scene before Dave was killed....a private party in Blackpool with a 60's theme!! 11 hours we went non stop.....a happy night! He always kept me on me toes at A/Nighters....and if Salmon was of his ilk and approach to life....then i'm sorry we never met as we;d have got on no probs...X. Rest in Soul Heaven both of them....X I hope Jonas still having a go!x If Salmons folk are the same kind as what was at Hollinwood....then as said....i'd beg to come and do something to raise money for a good cause that his family see fit.....anytime!x 07521042699...we all need time out to enjoy life.....whilst we still can....I have no excuses for not.....I don't believe your end has either....let's do it.......X Nice to hear form you too Billy....X

A lovely send off for Salmon, he would have been well chuffed that so many of his friends took the time to say goodbye.

Many,Many Thanks to all that turned up to see Salmon off on his final journey.

 

We think he would of approved of the sounds played later on, we played a good few that he put us on to,or sold us or as even gave to us.

 

Thanks to Tony Mac-Grant and Steve Henderson for entertaining us

 

 

And BIG thanks to Pez for organising-you remain a STAR  :hatsoff2:

 

 

 

Now a quick reminder that our next 45 Revolutions will be a benefit and remembrance night for Salmon, all monies raised going to the fund, hope some of you can join us
