what ever happened to Jim Wensiora ?

 

I believe when he sold up he bought some fairground rides that he used to have on Thorsby Market.  That was years ago, don't know what he is doing now.

Berkshire 7 Stop and start over Stop. Colin bought it off him c/u as Mel Wyn "Stop Girl".

 

That originally came From Poke - Jimmy bought it from him via me when I was selling Pokes stuff for him. Don't think Poke ever played it out though.

He bought the Dynamic Three in the same deal - mind you he bought a whole boat load of stuff! In fact, many records that Jimmy (and Gary played) came from Poke's 'junk box' as he called it - Colt 45's began its life in there too...

 

Haven't heard from him for a long while, he was using his mining expertise on the channel tunnel last I heard.

I think Jim got some of the acetates from me. The Charmaines I believe is Van McCoy. From the same load I got 'I Go Out Of My Mind' also by Van and not Chris Bartley.

The Ad Libs plus other titles he purchased around the time I sold him JD Bryant on Shrine.

Strangely Butch, Tim Ash and myself were discussing him only this afternoon.

Hope he's well wherever he is.

Did the Chris Bartley go to Jimmy as well Kev ?

There was a 10" April Blackwood acetate I had from Rob M he called Chris Bartley,"My heart still belongs to you".  Presume that went from Jim to Rob with the others. Think I sold it to Alan Coney.

He dated my sister hence he got in my good books.

Several months later I met Butch and he bought a lot of my unknowns in early 1982.

"You had to hurt someone" side of Ralph Graham was played c/u as Gene Mcdaniels. Colin played that side before "Sits there".

 

Colin got RG off Jimmy, Jimmy had done nothing with it though.

I'm pretty sure you're pal Andy Dyson owns or did own the Timothy Wilson credited song you mention Chalky

Distinctly recal discussing it with him at cleggy a few years back....

Totally agree about the great stuff Jim played during that period same goes for Rob Marriott.

Danny Everard is back in Cornwall, Truro.  He has an antiques shop which I visited some years ago.  He hasn't changed a bit.

That was from Poke too - he liked it but felt the condition was too rough to play it out - a great track though!
