    Mr M's Wigan

    Great atmosphere in there, records were all oldies twisted wheel etc Frankie Booper used to dance in front of the stage. The Dj's that come to mind were Mike Rolo, Dave Evison, Kenny Spence, Brian Rae and Steve Whittle.If I've missed anyone apologies as it was a long time ago. Regards Fred.

    first three records to start a set

    If you're doing the first spot pick 3 records that fit in with the venue /"soulies" i. e. Oldies, crossover, modern etc. If you're not doing the first spot you need to evaluate all that has been played before you and from this in your experience will I'm sure pick three sounds that will blow the roof off! All the best Fred

    Leeds Central Soul Club Christmas Alldayer

    Christmas at "Leeds Central" always takes me back to one Christmas in the 70's when lots of snow had fallen and we had a hard time getting there from Huddersfield. The "Central" was full and the lads from Dukinfield arrived (Barry & Charlie) much to our surprise as getting over the pennines due to the snow was as we thought impossible.I asked them how the hell did you get here? they replied we followed the snow blower over the tops, then they asked the question is there a petrol station around here as we're in the red.All those years ago, but that was the draw of the "Central" and still does draw lots of "Soulies " from all over and this year will be no exception and am glad to say Barry & Charlie will be with us once again.I am looking forward to spinning a few sounds in amongst really "Soulfull friends,Dj's and the music creating that "Central " atmosphere. See you all on Sunday. All the best wishes for Christmas and a happy new year.Fred.

    Top Ten Northern Soul Towns

    I would be inclined to agree with you Julian on these towns as a massive contingent of "Soulies" hailed out of West and north Yorkshire. All the best Fred.

    Dave Box RIP

    Dave a dear friend and such an unassuming humble person. Dave's knowledge of soul music was vast and inspirational and had acquired a vast collection of records over the years. He was passionate about the music and truly put a lot into the soul scene, from the early days of the all-nighters at Normanton baths in his hometown,the Early bath in Castleford, the Crystal bowl/tinned chicken also in Castleford, the Wilton Ballroom in Whitwood and the Frobisher Suite. This was a very popular and successful venue which Dave & Val , Jacque & Fred Ward ran for 12 years 1995-2007. Dave was responsible for bringing live acts over to the uk from the States such as Jackie Ross, Syl Johnson, Ann Sexton, Debbie Taylor and Richard Caiton. Dave & Val were regular visitors to the States and many of our hero artists were personal friends of theirs. Our deepest sympathy go out to Val,family and close friends Dave you will always be in our hearts R.I.P. Jacque & Fred Ward
