    Dave Godin Interview

    Mmm, yes you're right. To be fair to Dave, he wasn't doing that well wen I met him. His memory was fuzzy and I had to go and redo a few things because he admitted he couldn't always remember that well.

    Dave Godin Interview

    Hi there, I'd just put up an interview with Dave Godin that I did in 1998, not long before he passed away. Thought some of you chaps might find it of interest. It's here >

    Does anyone the name of the bearded fella featured in the This England documentary about Wigan? |I don't think it mentions his name but he talks about having a stall on Bury Market selling 45s.

    Pics Of Ian Levine And Colin Curtis

    Hello there. I run the DJhistory website (www.djhistory.com) and over the years we've done quite a few interviews with old northern DJs and we're gradually putting them all online. At the moment we've got Colin Curtis', Ian Dewhirst's and Levine's up there: http://www.djhistory.com/djhistory/archive...interview_id=36 http://www.djhistory.com/djhistory/archive...interview_id=18 http://www.djhistory.com/djhistory/archive...interview_id=50 (Note some of Mr Dewhirst's funnier stories appearing in the Simon Soussan thread and here!) We wanted to add pics to them. Mr Dewhirst has kindly sent me a very fetching picture of himself in repose at 4th & Broadway. Ian Levine has some quite cool ones on his Myspace pasge which he allowed me to use but the problem is they are very poor quality and too low resolution to reallty use. So I'm wondering if there is anyone here who has pics of either Ian or Colin that we can use to accompany their interviews. We would be very grateful. Still to come on the site: 'Farmer' Carl Dene, Rob Bellars, Kev Roberts, etc etc Thanks!

    Collecting Stories

    What are the most extreme stories of collecting you've heard about? Not necessarily the most money you've paid for something, but the funniest story, the most extreme methods you've used to acquire a record?

    Preacher Caston

    Hi Tenyu, no it's definitely Love Is The Message. I've got it on a CD-R but I've never seen the actual 45 and the guy who recorded it for me sold his collection... I strongly suspect it came from Beatin' Rhythm since this guy was always shopping in there.

    Preacher Caston

    Hello there. Has anybody ever heard of an artist called Preacher Caston? I was given a mix by a friend several years ago and the best song on the mix was a tune called Love Is The Message (no relation to the MFSB of the same name). It's gospel, but with an early disco flavour, possibly recorded sometime between 1972-1975, hard to say exactly when. I've done searches and looked all over for someone called Preacher Caston and I've never come across him, so I'm wondering whether the artist name might be wrong.... The song title is sung over and over in the tune, so I'm guessing that's correct. The vocal's reminiscent of Bobby Womack. Any help appreciated. I've asked around the usual suspects but no one seems to know him.

    Thanks. I found that stuff myself already, though. I meant anyone with first hand-ish knowledge of it, really. Thanks anyway.

    Belgium Popcorn Music

    Don't know if there are any Belgian collectors on here, but I was wondering if anybody knew much about this music. I know it's kind of similar to northern (and also Beach music, too), but they also played ska stuff and jazz, too, but guys like Major Lance and Billy Butler were big stars in Belgium and Freddy Cousaert, the guy who brought Marvin Gaye over to live in Belgium was the owner of the Groove in Ostend, which is where it all started. Anybody got any info?
