Thank you Pete French for verifying my Danny wots his name, wake up to the sunshine, I was sweating when you asked to look at it lol One of the great soul clubs imho, love it xxx
  2. Twas a mighty memory, Joseph Ludwig, absolutely rocked, and only his first here, the future is bright, abeit held up a bit with the evil Covid, the whole night absolutely relaxing, floors packed and great laugh with Trickster, twass good to be stretched, and watch Trickster interpretation to something different, first class, promoters and Djs who simply love what they are doing. Ya can feel it, just what the scene is about for me. love yas xxxxxxxx
  3. Ahhhhhh mates! so missing you all. I was gonna wear me badges love yas xxx
  4. until

    Def ovo from me, yer get germs from illegal plastic, the genres have been well advertised since last year, right in front of our noses lols so don't understand the question of groups, modern room etc, as btbktf67 says he will be playing a mix, so many great soul clubs and their djs participating,.... the flyer is what is happening...plus a bit of seasoning from seasoned DJs.so embrace! its gonna be fun, ..TEAM work will make this fantastic, we aint getting younger, and at the rate we are going this may be the last mass group weekender for some time, (really hope its not) so lets make the most
  5. Welcome Finlay, I think Norman may well bring out part 2 so make sure you keep in contact, and im sure folks like Kevinkent, lots have been in touch, Something unique about Bletsoe lol always got lost :} and at our reunion 4 years ago I set of from Nottingham after a dj spot, supposed to be 1 hour plus 15 minutes.....took me 3 plus 30 minutes lol def something amiss my sat nav kept going mad lol maybe the ol souls no longer with us, having a bit of fun xxx Got there 4am wish, and this is where I got to know Winston Heath RIP , a very wise man indeed, Winston was amazed about the older all nigh
  6. Dim, its pouring here, in Barton Mills, so l thought I would indulge just for a mo, and picked up Normans book, sitting on my table. Of course too young for most other than Bletsoe, but it was surreal seeing one of the pics taking in my childhood parents nicotine, sitting room, just as ive always said, not a fantasy lol twas there I first heard going to a happening Tommy Neal, and then the Elgins lp UK of course lol so hard to find then. Love ya write ups, like Winston RIP, you have the gift pf putting a great message over, right where are my full stops like, love and peace and thanks for all
  7. Amazing day! Jock and John You 2 totally rock absolute pros, always a masterclass, and with Ginger and Pete, well pow! have a fantastic Christmas and New Year . Pete 1 Big massive thanks, Ive put a bigger massive thanks and pics on here, below:} somewhere, Im still glowing from the wonderful way you folks spoilt me, on my 65th and to play on the TW decs again, well! Bless you all!!!!!!
    So cant thank my wonderful friends at the Twisted Wheel enough. Sunday 8th December 2019, will stay with me forever. Happy birthday fellow celebraters. Shaun and company. Pete Jackie Roberts thanks you for the special Twisted Wheel tee shirt and for allowing me to play some tunes in both rooms. And lol Lending me a box of toons. As ever loved it! Ginger Taylor what can I say your presentation to me, your edification and oh my goodness putting on Hoagy Lands signed on Stateside demo, can it get any better, you serve the soul scene beyond the call of duty, always the Ambassador, even when
  8. always a fab night, xxx
  9. I paid 5 pound for a fiat 500 in 1970 and saw one sell for 10k....sorry im just trying to get me head around, the question. One becomes defensive in a world where damned if you do and damned if you dont. One thing for sure is do we want to lose the real hard to find, to the Japanese etc. or to wealthy non soul collectors, I admire the big NS investors, they get stick but keep our scene at the top of the world. just wonderful to see their master classes I know loads of folks who flash their scooters, holidays, new kitchen, smoke 40 a day, and its wonderful, flash a toon, and well it can be very
  10. I gather one of Winstons mega large family posted it, it got buried very quickly under the messages on facebook. Please dont stop posting on here, im sure it was not what mecca74 meant. The outpouring for Winston speaks for itself xxx
  11. Gutted, been so looking forward, to another great Sunday. The force 9 vertigo hit me like a ton of bricks, maybe the wind in Prestatyn :}. 80 per cent of my set were twisted wheel toons. Always a top top Guest DJ list.. None finer Than Ginger Taylor. Andy Scoffin, yep he was 60 and I think his partying has gone on for over a week lol. The positive word is spreading Fast. The naysayers now drowned out. Many came back to Prestatyn, full of the great time they had. On the facebook group, the first times all said why havnt we gone before! Massive thanks to Phillip Fred Adedje
  12. Ahhhhhhhhh Paul you had me running to me scrap of paper, that I couldnt find anyway lol Twas a fab breakfast Paul, cant wait to see you my friend. Pete Jackie and the team always look after me as Ginger does at Brighouse lol Its an amazing espir de corp just as the scene should be, seeing blackpool soul brighouse folks, Sheffield, the wheel folks and many other is true soul family to me, speaking well of each other is the example on how not to kill a club atmosphere lol see ya on the 10th, xxx
  13. Will be Suffolk, Prestatyn Wales and then My spiritual home Twisted Wheel for Andy Scoffin birthday. I travel the world djing, but the wheel is the magnet. Folks who go love it, just the minority dont get it, I blame the ballrooms lol but thats no probs, it the folks who really think they know the music, do not! lol I oft wack a toon on at other venues, Twisted Wheel I say, they come up in amazement, wow! never knew that. Its the most fantastic welcome, honest if ya dont like it, i will refund ya fiver xxx
  14. Tim the man. These Blackpool DJs up there with there famous rock. These folks are really modest, but blimey love there soul. U budding Fen soul boys and girls love Tim and good company xxx
