  3. In these times of lockdown it's really nice to hear stories taking us back to our youth. It's exactly what we need,great to read all the stories of the clubs and what we used to get up to ,the characters on the scene and times that touched us individually and that you will hear a soul sound somewhere that will trigger the old memory cells and in an instant you will be teleported back in time and on your way to a nighter,Maybe the Torch, Blackpool Mecca, The Pendulum in Manchester and of course many more .Those moments are priceless. God bless all those who are no longer with us and those that

  7. OMG Very sad to hear this news. Geno was a really good friend of my late brother Rob Ward R.I.P. and used to see him at the Cleethorpes pier/Winter gardens All nighters.

Loved Northern Soul and was a really good dancer as it was in his blood. R.I.P. Ge
  8. Leeds Central Soul Club always on top.Playing the sounds we all grew up with and love. All set in the original building, with the original Dj's creating that "Central" only atmosphere that hits you as you descend down the stairs. Northern Soul & Motown at its finest. Looking forward to seeing you all on Sunday. Regards Fred.
  9. Ey up Steve,I'm only 67 years young. Regards Fred.
  10. Hi I've just read your ad re the venue and noticed you use Slipperine, not sure if you're aware, one of the ingredients is boric acid which has health implications if inhaled or ingested. If you download the data sheets it will confirm this or alternatively ask the question online and see the results. I just thought you should be aware. Hope Friday goes well! Regards Fred.
  11. Ey up Steve, and I'm only 67 years young, I'm privileged and looking forward to spinning a few sounds at the famous "Leeds Central Soul Club's" Christmas cracker, and hearing the top sounds spun by original central Dj's and guest Richard.Creating that unique atmosphere and being amongst top "Soulies" culminating in a truly soulfull experience and fantastic day. See you all on the day. A merry Christmas and a happy new year to you all.

  14. My old mate Martyn, Used to knock about with him quite a lot. Martyn passed away 18/9/2002.Much too early. He used to go out with Liz from Huddersfield for a time.He was one of the largest characters on the scene.Talk about a Dj when he was on at the Torch his words would all flow into one but he was up there with the best i.m.o.He Once Dj'd for me at the Frobisher suite and turned up with bits of toilet roll stuck all over his face as he'd cut himself shaving. Seriously though he's sadly missed and have many memories of him in many places. Always a pleasure to be in his comp
