Russ Winstanley video clips Parts 1 and 2

Two interviews now up on YouTube. Russ being interviewed by Ralph. Really interesting, factual and well worth listening to. Russ comes across really well and finally informs the doubters of what really happened at the start and finish of the Casino years.

Just a bit Mike. Just got off a plane. Only one of two legs working... Had to skip the surf in Hawaii but made up for this shopping in Detroit. You know me, I can’t post clips so I leave it to the experts.

Most certainly. Richard gets all the plaudits whilst Russ has waited in the wings. About time Russ spoke out in public. He speaks modestly and truthfully, clarifying some of the twaddle you read on here. Sure, he didn’t follow the career path of Richard or Kev, but giving credit when it’s due, Russ put Wigan Casino on the map and helped many of us get to where we are today.

Part 3 now added to YouTube for our perusal. Russ talks about the links between Motown and the Casino mentioning the thousands of tracks never released. He also mentions the hundreds of records he hasn’t yet played - I would happily watch a video of him flicking through a box of these sounds. Having been to the Arcade several times and the Casino Cafe twice, I would say it’s worth going out of your way to visit. Anyway, compulsive viewing for the nostalgic Wigan goer and an honest overview that answers a few questions.

I’ve heard Russ droning in many interviews of the hundreds of records he never had time to play they he says are as good as anything played at the Casino, he has now had 40 years to let us hear them, so where are they? Sigh.....

I’ve never heard Russ interviewed at length until now. Sure, he’s made very brief contributions to various programmes, but not lengthy enough to match the current batch of mis-fits in government. Yes, I agree, it’s time to hear these sounds. Russ, if you’re reading this, please post some scans and a few soundbites if you can.
