Plan your weekend June 4th 1966 with Mcr.Ev.News


Recommended Posts

Found a copy of The Manchester Evening News for June 1966 amongst a load of old newspapers. The "Where to go....."page makes interesting reading.

Ben E King was appearing at The Twisted Wheel , so no surprise there, but I didn't know they allowed entry from 7 to 11 pm and then re opened for the nighter.

If you didn't fancy The Wheel the Limit Club in Middleton had an all nighter for only 5/-, or how about Jimmy Cliff at the Jigsaw for 10/-.

Other acts on that weekend were Wayne Fontana, The Move, Dave Dee Dozy etc, plus others that I've never heard of but sound interesting. Even Jimmy Saville was in town.

Bob Miller & the Millermen (on at the Civic Hall that weekend) were always on BBC TV / radio shows in the late 50's thru to the mid 60's (& beyond probably) .....

.... when the BBC always featured watered-down versions of current pop / soul hits on all their progs.

The Richard Kent Style were appearing twice around Manchester that weekend, maybe they performed one of their releases:-
