  7. Such a special event miss Winston like many he became a wonderful friend mentor and could read me like a book lol well done mates xxx
  8. What an amazing electric night, Kings Hall one of 3 places that has brought the shivers and tears to my eyes. Soul and all that follows it can be very emotional, especially as we grow older. I was excited after djing at Nottingam FED club, one of thoses great clubs that are spread across the country. Dedicated promoters, doing it for the love, seasoned DJs, with some young uns been mentored. One young lass Willow did a great set, knowledge amazing top dancer and yes asked me for some toons I had never even heard off, we are never to old to learn. Onward to Kings hall I was not missin
  9. always a fab night, xxx
  10. O eck, well actually cant wait. Ive been to the club before and had a great time. Great lounge area top dance floor, and a discerning soul crowd, now 1hour and a quarter should be 27/28 records, if I keep me gob shut and dont play dem grammar school 5 minute ones, thanks Mick and Kenny, total RESPECT to you all xxx
  11. Cant wait Jimmy n Mark, I normally get there at the start but due to other already booked family djing commitments wont be there until around midnight. Full apologies, mate. Will be playing one or two for Winston and Simon RIP....my friendship was short with Winston, even Shorter with Simon, and im gutted, condolences to you folks who go back so far. Both funerals were a celebration, remarkably the Armed forces scooter Vicar at Simons, was a great friend of me dads, and the family through their navy and sea cadet association, and he came from Wales, especially to do dads service, its a small w
  12. I did a mod spot here on a saturday afternoon, said at the time it would make a fab allnighter, its one of dem gritty iconic clubs full of history ....mod set? well ok got distracted lol we had fun, Fab line up Gwasshopper in awe xxxxxx
  13. looking forward to a fab night, it wasnt that long ago i came as a punter, well 5 years odd lol fab night, thank you xxx
  14. I’m certain it was well-intentioned, if a little too fast, so Im sorry for my slight harsh response earlier. Dont want any bad blood, you dont deserve that. we are all at different levels of grief, and do/say things, thats surrounds this emotion. I was just shocked to see a memorial do announced before we had said our goodbyes at the funeral. thats all mate, Hope ya do goes well, Love ya Smiley xxx
