Posted

Trev Cox to the rescue please.....

What sorta years are we looking at regarding the soul nights you used to run there?

Recall going once/a few times I think? Just through the entrance door was a pool table and I remember Rod Dearlove setting out all his sales boxes on it. Blake were you there as well?

onwards, derek

Now then Derek,

We ran ( I think) from 1995 to 1999. There was myself, Blake Helliwel, Kev Johnson,Rick Scott and for the first year and half Steve Woomble. Mr Dearlove did always bring his sales boxes along and did the ocasional hour behind the decks for us too. By the way it was in Brigg not Scunthorpe. I think ive got a photo somewhere of you and Rod chatting at the bar (knowing you he probably got the beer in :rolleyes: )

Freaky you bringing this up as ive just been going through the tapes I used to do on the door there

did it show via  the 'More Source Forum Topics feature' ?

if so, then its more than likely been highlighted due to 'scunthorpe' matching in this topic title and a recent post in a similar titled topic

if ya look down you should be able to see... 👍

As you say Dave "Happy Days" Was a lovely venue and if i say so myself thought the Music played there was Excellent (as Mr. Burns would say)

Only Downer was the Bloody Dance Floor that was put together like a large Jig Saw Puzzle, Tripped on it many a times when i Danced on it 😀

Cheers, Rick.

Spent some happy hours there myself Mr P.  Musically very open and forward thinking at the time and it was a shame to see it go. I vaguely remember trading some 45's with you and probably coming off worst😂. I also remember Rod D doing a spot or two, but all of the DJ's played some nice stuff. Memory for me was when Rod played 2001 Black Essence - 'Change in my life' after he just purchased it...a rather spiffing tune I thought at the time.

Just seen this thread, yes good times. It was my equipment and meant an early start from Leeds, luckily they did food so a chip butty while setting up!

Some memories, the Tudor wedding party gate crashing until Denise Cox ejected them. Kev turning up in a horse/removal van. Not buying Pandella Kelly from Henry Atkinson! Doing a runner on the last night. Kev drunkenly singing Long after tonight at the end, till we pulled the plug. etc, etc.
