Firstly.... sorry Brett.... smile.pngshades.gif

Anyway.... just "plugging" the next event.... Friday 12th November....
Brett "wheels of steel" Franklin will be making his his 1st guest appearance at "his local do".... along with other guests....

I know it's the first night of Fleetwood w/e'er but it ain't our fault it clashes this year.... w/e'er moved from 1st w/e in Oct to 2nd w/e in Nov.... not Kev's fault either I understand....

Still running the night as we haven't missed one since starting back in Sept 2000 and I know not all folks venture to the w/e'er as been asked numerous times "is it still on".... the answer is YES smile.png as obviously we're not going to full w/e'er this year, just probably the Sat nite....

    On a serious note,Ponds Forge has always championed original vinyl records (the way i like it) John It'll be a similar set but i'm gonna kick off with a few early 70's grooves(hope Mark doesn't play anything i have first ! , suppose like Mr Rimmer and Mr Bicknell said to me, you gotta have something in reserve...... So i'll just play flip sides :) ) The Soulsville anniversary was an excellent CD, and i would seriously have thought about buying such a tremendous compilation.

    I'll say nothing else then my friend :)

    Would love to make it down. Just a bridge too far I think.

    Although that tree does sound tempting :)

    Sounds OK to me mate :( .... although I probably won't do it myself cuz I always think you get the more honest opinions from "punters" as "promoters" can be biased IMO and only use such self written "reviews" as "plugging" and "self promotion" material :P

    I know Mike and the mods suggest otherwise re promoters writing a review but I'm never too sure :(:P:P:P ....

    That's not to say I wouldn't add anything to comments raised if needs be :D ....

    Seriously though, Ponds Forge is a really good night. As Mark says, across the board. This months choice of several guests should be very interesting.

    Always plenty of beer drunk as well.

    Apparently Mark Etheridge (Promoter and Godfather of TheVault Of Soul) has generously offered to buy all the nights DJs free drinks of their choice, plus the fare for the Taxi home :D .

    Wish more Promoters would take this tremendous Christian approach.

    Just like to say within the last 2 weeks i have had the honour (a rather daunting one to) to play on the same event as Pat Brady and now tonight the legendary John Vincent. I'm just a punter with the odd vinyl record, so thanks to my man Jamie and of course the Vault Of Souler Mr Etheridge.

    ps we have the run of S/Source today as a bunch of regs will be deciding as we talk whos gonna sleep where at Blackpool :D

    Not sure why Brett but interest in this weekender appears to be on the low side this year even though "site" sold out.... on about the many more who have stayed elsewhere in past with a weekend pass giving it a miss.... know of quite a few local (South Yorks) folk not going.... some just contemplating the Sat nite though.... myself included.... still not decided though....

    When first realised it clashed due to their date change I must admit a little trepidation on numbers tonight.... but my phone and e-mail has received quite a few enquiries as to "are you still on" so you never know mate.... interest appears to be about normal.... :D

    I usually attend, but just didn't feel like i wanted to go this year, seems to be so much soul events to visit, and i haven't got bottomless pockets.
