And Billy with your super hero's ears,that can pick anything now,Its like having your own early warning system,does NATO know about them ears laugh.gif

Another great Middleton. A bit of a strange one for me as i spent most of the night sitting in the record bar talking and listening to records on a portable Numark.

I only danced twice! :thumbup:

Still had a great time though after fighting the snow blizzards on the way up and Mark's fan heater had packed up in his car so we couldn't see a thing. There were times i didn't think we'd make it there or home... :thumbup:

Hi Matt,

Enjoyed your company at the record bar....and you did get to go home with a nice selection of bargain price 45s!

Was my first Middleton and I loved every minute of it, superb venue, music and a very friendly bunch. Was good to meet you Andy and catch up with some old faces like Fingers, Mark, Matt and Steve plus loads more.

HAVE YOU LOST A RECORD FROM MIDDLETON?

After quickly sorting my records after last night I've come across a 45 that does not belong to me. No idea how it ended up in my box, probably after someone brought it over to listen to on the deck. If you're missing a 45 from last night then PM with the record you're missing and I'll let you know if that's the one I've got.

Cheers,

Adam.

Forgot to mention...the icing on the cake of a great night was picking up one of my top 5 wants. Not an expensive record (yet!) but one that has escaped my grasp for a long time now. Couldn't take the smile off my face once it was safely tucked away in my record box :thumbup::thumbup:

the amigos had a good time at this allnighter for sure.Great to see all the planets were well represented with a full count of scary starey people who all know the secret of the black magic box.The men of music (djs) played very good sets on the whole,we can't all like every record as long as we like 99.99% lol.I like these djs a lot,they play interesting sets of dance soul what more can you ask for.We parked up with the super cool from goole....pete,gail,steve and gazza and it was hootsville all night,plenty of bollox the strange language of the nighter spoken a bit of dancing and a general good time vibe.Question?....who are these people called f**k knows from a town called f**k knows who seem to have made most of the records they play that I don't know.??????Every time I ask somebody who's that over there? I,m told f**k knows? or where do they come from? I,m told f**k knows and whats worse when I ask somebody whos this record by....the answer is it's by one of these people called f**k knows :thumbup:laugh.giflaugh.gif .Nice to see nick and hannah (hope you can see now hannah lol :ohmy: ).Big thanks to Carl Fortnum for not playing my request lol. hey Carl great way of getting rid of ya flyers in one fell swoop,did that on a paper round once ha ha :lol::lol: ......top ,top night many thanks to all who make it so :thumbup:

=============

yes it was an arduous journey.....been through a snow shower before but that one on the way up was a howler!! as matt said cud see a fooking thing

but was well worth it

music in the main was A1

Carl Fortnum is just the dogs bollocks - his spot was awesome again (spun the combinations - what you gonna do) for me

Nick and Flanny did great spots too as did John Weston...

heard loads of old stafford tunes last night..spencer - searching for love not heard in years!!

another excellent night...

What an excellent night, plenty of familiar faces :) . Hardly sat down all night, Sam did an excellent spot, as did everybody else. Thanks to BearSoul for the lift back to Salford.

Sorry I can't make the next one as I am working :lol:

Next one the anniversary niter on may 17th hope to see you all there.Now then isnt there a big party on in oldham this sat nite for a very youthfull looking 50 yr old called mrs willingham should be a belter thumbsup.gif .Playlists please from all you djs and guests ta.

So knackered from my hectic two days schedule (and over 400 miles, total) of three DJ spots over two 'nites.. only now able to sit & reflect enough to make my posting for another excellent 'niter at Middleton. Thanx, as always, Andy. :thumbsup:

Well... wot a nite !! Managed to get there, eventually - after enduring miles of weather more suited to those countries offering skiing holidays. The snowflakes were as big as footballs !! - I swear !! :D After about 40 miles of these conditions I began thinkin (with still another 30ish miles to travel) I must be 'Raving Mad' doing this and should, instead, be heading the other way down the M6.. & making the appx 140 mile journey home - instead of facing potential hazardous conditions for 170 + miles on the Sunday morning !! Then, suddenly remembering I am 'Raving Mad'.. I put me foot down instead !! (I was in a 4x4 anyway.. so what's the concern ??).

Arrived at about 2.50am (travelled up from The Soul Academy's fantastic Stafford Rangers FC 'nite - where I had a brilliant time doing the Guest DJ honours for the evening.. thanks Shute - Top Man) - which gave me just under an hour before the commencement of my 'Virgin' DJ debut at Middleton - via a spot kindly offered by that incredible soul duo of Carl & Maria. I am so grateful for the opportunity offered to spin some of my fave 45's from my collection (plus an LP track - on the nite) for the potential enjoyment of others in attendance at the Willingham Suite between 3.45 & ?? I'm not sure.. because Kit misplaced his keys (so couldn't retrieve his box of discs - wot a nightmare situation.. gutting!!) I was allowed to stay on longer than the planned 4.50 finish. Maria finally came back on for the duration of what was Kit's spot but, looking at the amount of tunes I managed to play, I enjoyed (immensely.. I really, really did !!) what must be the best part of an hour & a half in control of the decks !! What an inauguration !!

I used the available time to quickly do 'The Flyer Run' - first in the WS then the Record Dealers room and Main Hall. At which point I'd exhausted the available houndouts so didn't get in to the Back Room.. Whatsoever !! (the evening - what was left of it, going so quickly it was almost over before I'd realised).

Said some extremely quick 'Hello's' to all the familiar fun faces during my 'round' of flyer delivering. I apologise I didn't get opportunity to spend as much time with some of you as would've been preferred, but the nite just flew by.

Quick reminder, as I passed them, to a few of the 'faces' that may, even remotely, have been interested, cared, or bothered.. that my spot was about to begin - then off I eagerly trotted to await the 'Starters Orders' in the WS and, within just a few minutes.. I was off and away !! I soon became so totally immersed in the pleasure that I was getting from my alloted time (and some of the reactions to my selections) that I experienced several 'rushes' of delight at times - the type of which are seldom felt outside the bedroom !! I hope the general concensus of the audience, too, is one of enjoyment.. and I can be allowed to return at some future date (if it were any of the rooms at Middleton it would be a pleasure !! - hopefully, one day, I might be offered the opportunity in the Main Hall.. that, certainly, would be both an honour & privelage).

I include (I think, in it's entirety !?! unsure.gif ) my playlist.. and have tried to list them as played - but can't guarantee it's accuracy !!

Another good night at Middleton (Andy even provided a treasure hunt, 'Kits key's'), got in about 9.30pm, sorry Carol I missed your spot36_1_38.gif, I heard it was a good'n, Dave Rivers was just starting and WHAT a spot he did36_1_55.gif, I spent a bit of time walking about all the three rooms and record bar, talk about itchy feet36_1_34.gif, I manged to hear Carl Fortnum and Nick Hacket do excellent spots, but Nick does it for me every time 36_1_32v.gif(don't forget the cd mate lol). The last two and a half hours I spent in the R & B room, these guy's just know how to produce the goods, nice to hear Andy Brazil play some great tunes and Hose was like a mustang, once he got going you could'nt stop him, got kicked out at 8.10am. Well done lad's36_1_11.gif.

Soul Sam played three dance tracks together, I think the first might have been the Urban Blues Project, does anybody know the other two?

Peter

hi Peter, yes one of the records played by Soul Sam was UBP feat Bobby Pruitt - We are one, I think the other 2 were Michael Proctor - Love dont live (Tommy Musto mixes) and Soul Brothers feat Joi Car? - Let it go..........

So knackered from my hectic two days schedule (and over 400 miles, total) of three DJ spots over two 'nites.. only now able to sit & reflect enough to make my posting for another excellent 'niter at Middleton. Thanx, as always, Andy. thumbsup.gif

Well... wot a nite !! Managed to get there, eventually - after enduring miles of weather more suited to those countries offering skiing holidays. The snowflakes were as big as footballs !! - I swear !! :P After about 40 miles of these conditions I began thinkin (with still another 30ish miles to travel) I must be 'Raving Mad' doing this and should, instead, be heading the other way down the M6.. & making the appx 140 mile journey home - instead of facing potential hazardous conditions for 170 + miles on the Sunday morning !! Then, suddenly remembering I am 'Raving Mad'.. I put me foot down instead !! (I was in a 4x4 anyway.. so what's the concern ??).

Arrived at about 2.50am (travelled up from The Soul Academy's fantastic Stafford Rangers FC 'nite - where I had a brilliant time doing the Guest DJ honours for the evening.. thanks Shute - Top Man) - which gave me just under an hour before the commencement of my 'Virgin' DJ debut at Middleton - via a spot kindly offered by that incredible soul duo of Carl & Maria. I am so grateful for the opportunity offered to spin some of my fave 45's from my collection (plus an LP track - on the nite) for the potential enjoyment of others in attendance at the Willingham Suite between 3.45 & ?? I'm not sure.. because Kit misplaced his keys (so couldn't retrieve his box of discs - wot a nightmare situation.. gutting!!) I was allowed to stay on longer than the planned 4.50 finish. Maria finally came back on for the duration of what was Kit's spot but, looking at the amount of tunes I managed to play, I enjoyed (immensely.. I really, really did !!) what must be the best part of an hour & a half in control of the decks !! What an inauguration !!

I used the available time to quickly do 'The Flyer Run' - first in the WS then the Record Dealers room and Main Hall. At which point I'd exhausted the available houndouts so didn't get in to the Back Room.. Whatsoever !! (the evening - what was left of it, going so quickly it was almost over before I'd realised).

Said some extremely quick 'Hello's' to all the familiar fun faces during my 'round' of flyer delivering. I apologise I didn't get opportunity to spend as much time with some of you as would've been preferred, but the nite just flew by.

Quick reminder, as I passed them, to a few of the 'faces' that may, even remotely, have been interested, cared, or bothered.. that my spot was about to begin - then off I eagerly trotted to await the 'Starters Orders' in the WS and, within just a few minutes.. I was off and away !! I soon became so totally immersed in the pleasure that I was getting from my alloted time (and some of the reactions to my selections) that I experienced several 'rushes' of delight at times - the type of which are seldom felt outside the bedroom !! I hope the general concensus of the audience, too, is one of enjoyment.. and I can be allowed to return at some future date (if it were any of the rooms at Middleton it would be a pleasure !! - hopefully, one day, I might be offered the opportunity in the Main Hall.. that, certainly, would be both an honour & privelage).

I include (I think, in it's entirety !?! :lol: ) my playlist.. and have tried to list them as played - but can't guarantee it's accuracy !!

If anyone wants a DJ to enhance there night/nighter do yourselves a favour and get fingers booked soon because he will be booked up for a while after his latest set :lol: Dont forget my 10% agents fees :P

Back to Middleton. Andy thanks again for putting on a supreb night, Was good to see so many other people of the night in attendance considering Rugby was on and the weather conditions where more like what you get in the Alps than Manchester. And it was only 5mins from home :P Nearly forgot. Big thanks to Maria for opening her set with the Timothy Wilson tune i asked for

last Saturday, really enjoyed the whole night.

Steve Cato & Lydia, thank you for the warm welcome,risotto, & the kind of hospitality

with inspired tunes

(also great to see Nick & Hannah there)

that put me in a positive frame of mind for a night among knowledgeable.

fun friends (What a great combination :wicked:

Richard Bailey, fellow "snout-cast" for (as always) interesting ideas & chats,

while braving Siberia for a smoke.

there are times, when skint & knackered when we all feel "what's it all about?"

but even after no sleep thurs-sun :thumbup: , & a journey Hannibal would have been wary of;.

just witnessing Hoss & Joe, all fired-up, putting everything into their last (8.30-9am!!??) set,

or steve (before you go you've got to listen to "just this one more" yes.gif

Yes, That passion is what it's all about!

OOh The memories!

p.s massive thanks to Johnny

for the lift back (& second after-party!! rolleyes.gif )via Sheffield & Milton Keynes!

(& Steve thanks for the book!)

looking forward to the next one.

Andy.
