Hi there,

 

I,m new to the forum, just trying to catch up with anybody that remembers either of the CW Oldham or Burnley, especially those that remember Mick the Fed & Micky Rob who i've been trying to trace for ages.

 

 

Keep the faith

Hi Andy......welcome to Soul Source.

 

I'm from Shaw and used to go to the ""Whiskers" in Oldham (but not the one in Burnley) and remember Mick the Fed playing soul & Motown releases of the day.

 

Sunday nights became "soul nights" with Alan Massey the DJ in those days.

 

I started a thread in "Members Shouts" a few months ago, asking if anyone remembered the Magnet Hotel (which used to be near Mumps) and which had a mid-week soul night with Richard Searling and from where Graham Anderson used to run a coach to Wigan.
