  1. 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 company Regards Fred.
  2. Another All-Dayer is almost upon us, Set in the Legendary "Leeds Central" Soul Club that formed part of the foundation of Soul music known as Northern Soul,Coupled with Tamla Motown across the country.A truly Northern Soul experience Set in Leeds West Yorkshire and still flying the flag today are:- Steve the Organiser and one of the original Dj's and the resident Dj's All original "Central" Dj's and all the "Central" Soulies and to any new Soulies a big welcome! We look forward to seeing you All next Sunday the 18th of August 2019 and for us All to being part of the experience and having a fantastic day. Regards Fred (Dj and part of the Leeds Central team).
  3. Really Saddened to hear of Theresa's passing.I'll always remember the record I'll bet you, first heard it at Tiffany's (Wakefield Mecca) in the Bali Hai spun by the one and only Mr Soul himself Tony Banks. R.I.P. Theresa.
  4. Well worth a visit. Minutes from junction 31 M62 east. The Club is situated just off Castleford road heading up towards Normanton Town Centre.With a large Car park. Inside a Stage, large Dance floor, perimeter seating plus raised seating overlooking The Dance floor. Top sounds spun by Resident Dj's plus This months Guest Dj's Fred ward and Tony Jackson two of the Original Dj's from the famous Leeds Central Soul Club. As said previously a Top night and one not to be missed.

    A big thanks to Julie & Richard for having me on again, and nice to be playing the same night as Tom. I'm sure as well as Richard we'll keep the floor buzzing! Regards Fred.
  9. The Brickyard in mexborough that counjers up memories our kid (Rob Ward ) R.I.P. used to go across with The Dj John Simms and a few other lads from Huddersfield. Lou Johnsons unsatisfied always flashes me back to The Pendulum in Manchester.R.I.P. Lou.
  10. Now in its 50th year and being the longest running Soul venue in the country,still in the original building,what better place to be at,the mecca for Northern Soul,The Leeds Central Soul club 2019 easter All-dayer and to be in the company of top "Soulies",top original Central Dj's spinning Top Northern sounds you can't sit down to. All this culminating in that unique "Central " atmosphere. Everytime i decend down the stairs the memories come flooding back ,the music, the people and the good times. I look forward to seeing you All on Easter Sunday Regards Fred.
  11. Sorry to hear of the closure and having been in the same situation with the Frobisher Suite in Wakefield i can emphasize with Julie and Richard.A big thank you for putting together such a memorable venue.Eggborough will go down in history as one of the top Northern Soul Venues in the home of Northern Soul Yorkshire.It has been a priveledge to do guest spots at this extremely popular Venue.Moving forward its good that Julie & Richard.Have been able to secure some extra nights at the sister Venue Drax. I'm a great believer that one door closes and another door opens and i'm sure that it wont be long before another Venue will be located and continue where Eggborough left off Onwards and upwards All the very best wishes to Julie & Richard. Fred Ward.
  12. Can't make this one,but without a shadow of a doubt it will be another alldayer setting the bar! Look forward to the April Easter All dayer! In answer to Hill 868's question as said previously the format is Vinyl with an analogue recording Vinyl is old technology and has been almost unchanged for the past 40 years,that's because it's the closest to the perfect device for listening to music .It is far more high quality, no audio data is lost when pressing a record.It sounds as great as the producer artist or band intended. Regards Fred.
  13. Hi, please pass on my congrats to H F E All the best Fred Ward.
  14. Hi Julian ,I hope you are both well. I lost 2 great aunties from The Netherlands,and my mother spent 5 years as a teenager under Nazi rule in occupied Netherlands. One day a knock came to my mothers house in the Hague where she lived with her family and two german soldiers were at the door and said Nalus my Mothers younger brother had to go with them. they never saw him again. as far as im aware my mothers family were all arian Dutch, but never got to know the reason why my great Aunties were taken to a concentration camp.Whilst this has no direct link with Holocaust day, the war did affect many people all over the world and just thought I'd share this Regards Fred.
