ALL of this is OPINION - YOUR'S TOO. Sam used to play Coffee 'Casanova' when it was in the charts - he told me himself and if that ain't a crap record I don't know what is... The music policy upstairs at Blackburn was as upfront and modern as it is possible to get thanks to Mick, so the snotty oldies comments are well out of order. I heard A LOT of wonderful god garage and soulful house there well before it was gaining mainstream acceptance on the scene.
PS Tomangoes - Hooker1951 is probably the only guy on the scene who can say that truthfully.
