    That's right Andy, it was on the Sunday nights, Mel would have been at Cleethorpes etc on the Saturdays. I think she went with a lass called Spike.

    Spalding. Small Venue

    I remember going in there in the very early 8o's. It was sort of behind the Pied Calf and about 4 foot square. My sister used to go there in the mid 70's, sometimes and they played Northern Soul and Motown, maybe before the bus left for St. Ives? I seem to remember the Wirrina and Fleet having niters on the same night. Early on I think there were both the Pheonix Club, Carousel Club, Wirrina stadium (roller skating), someone on here I'm sure can clarify. The Cresset to??

    Tommy Frontera (Detroit) - who was he ?

    Thirty years ago I was given a lift from Chicago to Detroit by a Detroit born record collector. Looking at some records I had bought, he informed me the TF was a big hit locally because high school lads had bought the record to give to their sweethearts; maybe why you can’t good copies of it – played to death or chucked in the trash!

    Vinyl Carvers

    To make a ‘record’ you need a length of substance, stable at room temp, to have a groove that will be made (V) to make a needle / stylus wobble from side to side horizontality in such a fashion to generate the music. For practical, space reasons, it is laid out in a cylindrical format such as a wax cylinder or snail-shell platter format e.g. 45 / LP, shellac , vinyl JTS’s acetates and such, are a metal platter covered with cellulose acetate. Carvers are a platter of polyvinyl chloride type plastic. A groove is cut into them by a ‘lathe’ which the needle/stylus can follow and then can pick up the sound from.

Any recommendation? 55. Any to avoid like the plague? TIA

    What’s the most you’ve paid for a record

    £4.50p to be precise. He wanted a quid for each, but I only went to 50p for the white one due the writing on the label.
