No, I can‚Äôt think of any DJ on the scene who is more deserving of an award. Sure, there are other very good DJ‚Äôs worthy of tribute in a thread on¬†‚ÄėFavourite DJ‚Äôs, but only a handful who have had a national impact.

Moreover, this is not the time to make comparisons. Richard should be basking in the glory of what he has achieved. We are privileged to be in a position to admire Richard’s achievement from the sidelines. I have enjoyed Richard’s DJing, various compilations and more recently his book, for 45 years but his contributions stretch further back than that. To even consider making alternative suggestions at this juncture would be a heresy.

It's ironic really as Soul Sister Janes all time favourite soul sound is "I Need Love" Daybreak.

  This was Richard Searlings exclusive monster sound at Wigan Casino, covered up as Tyrone Edwards "Search This World".

l wonder if she was even born then!

It's funny how the person who started the thread has not even had the decency to reply to so many articulate replies . Makes you wonder if it's no a wind up. 

Hmm maybe you’re right there ,  bit of a bad one to pick though.

I could certainly see Ady being a top candidate for an award for the crucial work he's done for the furtherance of soul music over the years with Kent/Modern, the 100 Club and Cleethorpes etc - however that in no way detracts from Richard who thoroughly deserves this award and is of course a much higher profile figure amongst the general public.

How can you dis Richard as well as his shows and working tirelessly to promote black American music of all genres he has Influenced so many peoples taste in the  music. He thoroughly deserves this. The only dj at the casino worth listening to in the latter years apart from the master Soul Sam. Whom should have a accolade himself.

Perhaps you might like to enlighten us as to who you think is more deserving Jane? I'm sure it would make interesting reading.

We have been referring to him as 'Sir Richard Searling' on this here fine site for many a year. So of course he deserves it!

Those are my thought Siss. What were your thoughts for thinking otherwise?

 Nope !! 

                  There are no better DJ,s than Ricardo!! Richard Memories :: 1974 Station Road ; constantly annoyed Richard to play " R.Dean.Taylor " ,As ,I,Am walking Down The Street etc every night at his 2 ,Am Spot,eventually on request number 7 he gave me a mint copy of beacon 136,in birth sleeve, forget marsden and garrick this was Ad fab {Richards flowery adjectives !}. Root and Jenny Jackson,stuffed it in my Speedo Holdall {with E blacked out] Rushed home to Coventry and played numerous times the Ultimate Turd version ,needless to say I never tested his immaculate patience again , What a true Diplomat!

Advance 1976 :Stomperoonie Time , RS ,drops the Garrard Sp mk 3 on  a new release Tavares " Heaven must Be Missing an Angel Jane SS " Perfecto ,then Smith Bros , he introduced me to Modern Soul!

On a recent "Solar Radio " Show ,Richard Bemoaned the fact he hated the misery of current News ,well if more of us could be like R.S etc,etc ?

Finally a certain tune of his  on General American ,should be his acceptance accolade,  " Nothing Can Compare To You ",Mr Searling I Salute you Soul Brother !

                                                                    LOL Johnny Hart ,Malaga ,Spain.
