  1. Maybe its a case of don't double deck and when one dj has finished his/her spot lock the record box. Then the next dj unlocks their box and can't put 30 records by accident into their box. I dont understand how a dj would have space in their record box to fit 30 records i would have thought they would be quite full given that you dont want your records loose, flying about in transit. Using a small record box like they were back in the day is a big risk as its very easy to be picked up. You need an aluminium box that holds 200 to 300 thats quite heavy so difficult to carry off and if it happens hopefully wont get too far. Just keep an eye on your trolley as well! Regards Fred.
  2. 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.
  3. Just read this, really sad news. Tom a dear friend over the years on the scene and a character. Used to see Tom all over the scene and always had time to speak to you. R I P Tom. Jacque & Fred Ward.
  4. Really sad to hear this news. Takes me back to the days of the Twisted Wheel Whitworth street Manchester, The Hifi ClubTrinity street in Huddersfield where my brother Rob(R.I.P.) and I used to walk up to the Hifi and there was this West Indian guy who lived just down the road used to have his upstairs window open and would be playing good soul sounds. The one that caught our attention was this record Barefootin'.His name was Seamore Burke who we got quite friendly with. A really nice guy and one day he said to me I want you to have this record which was Barefootin'/ let's go baby where the the action is. Wherever I Dj I always have this sound with me and play it regularly at the Central. A class soul sound. R.I.P. Robert.
  5. Just read the news.One of my all time fav artists.Her music will always be with us. R.I.P. Lorraine. Fred Ward.
  6. Hi Julian, yes we are well, and trust you and Carolyn are too. Good news that Johns still with us! Didn't he get the nickname "batman" as he used to wear a cape or just wear his raincoat like one with his top button fastened with his arms inside? .We can't make it to Barnoldswick as with now three grandchildren are doing a spot of babysitting. Hopefully we'll see you both in the coming year. All the best.
  7. I also Remember John Bollen aka (Batman) from Lord Jims, he used to keep us entertained in the queue outside Lord Jims and wasn't he the John Bollen who was on Ian Levine's "The Strange World Of Northern Soul"?. Regards Fred.
  8. On the other hand anyone from the scene that the dancers in the video are from to watch some of the top Northern Soul Dancers we have and had over the years would be absolutely amazed. 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. Fred & Jacque

  13. By a mile it has to be 1st George Carrow because like already said its the first to be spun at various venues across the country and it's the best version.2nd Darrell Bank"s take on it. Then the others don't come anywhere near. I.M.O. Regards Fred.
  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 company Regards Fred.
