Soul Source Allnighter

Recommended Posts

My post was sparked by; "Advice On Hosting A Possible Weekender" - By cluffy in AAS Thursday 18th Jan.

Would you go to a ONCE A YEAR Soul Source members only Allnighter?

Would many of us come out from behind our user names?:ohmy: Where would be the best venue? Who would be on the DJ members Rota list?

Who would run the record bar? What would the play policy be? How many rooms? Who would we get to do a LIVE appearance?

or -Would it be like a school reunion?- never been to one personally.

All hypotheticle of course...:)

I would definitely be up for a soul source nighter.  , Venue wise probably the North West the reason being  bigger membership from this area I would imagine. Totally across the board music policy . One or Two rooms ?

So that we don't fall down at the first hurdle with a venue, can I suggest somewhere totally detached to any current/past venue's.......I don't know............ off the top of my head............................... maybe somewhere in the Med..................small island? :wicked:

A few of us thought about this yonks ago. Simon H, aka Sharmo1, Paul Bear aka Bearsy and myself. 

Nothing came of it as we all fell out! 😠

We didn’t fall out really. Simon and Bearsy haven’t posted for ages.

Hey Steve we are just fine and dandy love to you both.

 

I'm onto rooms now................

1 room each for the obvious venues

Torch, wheel, blah, blah, mecca, casino, blah blah.....

Then we need a room for the people who thought they shouldn't have played 'that' there and a room for the ones who thought that 'that' record was too fast for 'there' but too slow for 'there.......... feel free to jump in here.....

Then you need a OVO room, a PO room, a 1st issuePO room etc, a CDO (small room that one) a "I think I have it on a tape somewhere" room

Then of course an oldies room, a not quite as old as the oldies room, a pretty new stuff room, a modern room, a not quite as modern as the pretty new stuff room but more modern than the modern room .........

I feel the need for spreadsheets, powerpoint presentations and pointing devices to enter this debate fully

:D:rofl:

Can we have a scrapping room or do we use the carpark ? . 

Be good to see whos who though .

If some brave soul takes on the idea I wish them luck, hopefully I'd be able to get there

I used to go to a yearly meet for the poetry board I posted on, all the preconceived ideas about who was who and what they would potentially look like going off their screen name and the poetry posted and their comments went out of the window. Only one person looked how I imagined, one bloke who came across on the board as a proper little Hitler was a real gent away from the keyboard , a couple who used to write quite graphic sexual poems to each other turned out to be in their sixties, one women just wouldn't believe I was who I said I was insisting Smiffy was a short fat and bald so yes it would be interesting to put names to faces.

You've just created my perfect holiday, walking the Cami, Northern Soul and the Roast Lamb in a restaurant the name of which slips my memory.

The Venue would need a large Cloak room for all the Anoraks.

Also a large screen showing ebay auctions so everyone can laugh at the prices and tell anyone who'll listen they only paid a Tenner for their copy.

The venue would also need to be large enough to hold the Worlds over 35's Chin Stroking competition. 

 

 

 

The large screen would have to be used to show the records being played, with a zoom camera able to check the deadwax.

Damn, I knew there would be more, I will have to start a new spreadsheet!! This is more difficult than first imagined......... then there is the collectors room, the "I don't give a shit as long as I can dance to it" room, the "can you play the one you played last week mate, dunno what its called but it was fast and had female backing vocals" room and of course the legendary "what was that name of that last record" room!
