Just been given a j.peg of this pic to post up here from my mate Steve Johnston, its an old 70 pic of Dean McDonald (shown in the at the club video).

Steve sent this message too:

I was taking a look at "IN THE CLUB" part one and just about wasted a bottle of Becks! When on the screen came MR Dean McDonald! Is this the same Deano that was resident DJ with Bob Richards at the Cross Keys in Hindley, take a look at the photo of him on the Casino dance floor 79/80 can a man lose that much hair in so little time Nice to see you're keeping well Deano next time I'm back home in Wigan a pint or two we will have to have my MAN.

That'd do it. :thumbsup:

If you can be arsed with the wait that is. Think it's worth the wait - maybe just graze ebay for a couple a mins. :)

Weird tho', some clips play fine. Others take an age ..

Anyway you love it really, it's only this threads' above you ad-libs thing innit? :D

I took part in the making of the `In the Club` vid above............. The Wigan episode was part of a Series of shows about the Northern Club scene down the years, Northern being the location, not the type of Music as it was only meant to be shown in the Granada TV region..

The First was about the Cavern, the Last about Creamfields, the Middle one being about the Casino........ It was not meant to be a video about the soul scene as such, just a `Punters` point of view of going to the above Clubs.

I agree with you to a point as it is just 'another` Wigan Video and if you never went, then it doubless gets a bit boring, but at least this programme asked a few `Different' people a few 'different' questions about the old place, instead of just digging up the 'Usual Suspects' in Searling, Roberts and co just to tell us all (again) how wonderfull they all were.

The Casino was THE place that got me into the music, a love I still have some 30 years on, doubtless you may feel this passionate about one of your venue's, but love it or loath it, would there be anything like the `Northern' scene we have today without it??. thumbsup.gif
