News! The Wigan Casino Pioneers Story

Recommended Posts

I have posted up another extract from my 1977 Wigan diary . I also fell on some more video of Wigan Casino on You Tube. In fact, there are quite a number of pieces of video taken from UK TV programmes about the club and I was surprised how amny times it has featured on TV! The extract below is a fairly balanced view of the place from some the leading DJs who played there.

Bit 'Same old, same old' from the usual suspects, but Keb Darge's contributions are well worth a watch!. :thumbsup:

Question: Wigan opened in Sept. 1973. How is a diary of 1977 in any way "pioneering"?

I think they mean the people on the video clip.The diary is just a play list of what was played on a night.

The link is to the blog page of Colin Dilnot who has a vast knowledge of Soul both Northern and deep, modern etc.Give it a read very interesting.

Yes, I guess my response sounded a bit churlish! Still, I would hardly call anyone on a Wigan video "pioneers", as it I suppose it would have been made after Northern Soul had started to get into the tabloid press (ie.1975+)
