  1. Thanks for sharing this sad news. Songwriters are often overlooked but he wrote some classics.
  2. KeV - I think we're all in the same situation and I feel the same as you describe. The government wants the nighttime industry to stay around until they have answers while not doing any formal sector 'bailout' (I'm in energy and there's no cover at all by government for customer bills, the growth in debt of customers not paying is left with the energy companies right now). So it's trying to show positive signs and hope for the future - but these lateral flow tests aren't accurate enough as the BBC article said and introduce their own risk if we rely on them. In the backgroun
  3. I didn't mean that you were saying this yourself - apologies. I soon calmed down and edited my reply afterwards to clarify properly. I was saying that they do not 'have approval to introduce health passports to music venues' as Far Out magazine asserted. It is that assertion that is overreaching against the facts. They are doing a limited showcase trial of their own commercial solution (not government adopted technology or with wider government mandate) at two venues. It's really important to be clear on this as people could read the articles and infer more than this actual
  4. It is start-up You Check's own health passport proposal not a government one. https://www.eventindustrynews.com/news/venues-set-to-trial-you-check-health-passport# It's just a start up saying 'let us show you something' to the government. I see this all the time in my sector and participate in some government showcase technology trials. Even if adopted it means a test every week or possibly more. I'm not sure how long interest in that will last. I'm not cynical, I want to get things back. Boris's words yesterday were the first on this and far more cautious. Let's all
  5. Bit more at the bottom of the article: "Mr Kill said allowing revellers to perform tests the day before or under the supervision of a professional over a video call could make the process less onerous. Nevertheless, he welcomed Mr Johnson's announcement. "Finally we have some acknowledgement from the prime minister and government on the existence of late-night economy businesses, including nightclubs, theatres, casinos and late bars, particularly as they are some of the hardest hit since the start of the pandemic," he said." So you'd have to show up with evidence of
  6. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-56077372 The UK government seems to be possibly linking opening of venues to use of lateral flow testing at some point in future. The theory being you have to get a negative test at the venue before you are allowed in I guess. That seems a long way off and doesn't seem like we should expect any Soul venues operating in 2021 to me. At present the PM is only speculating, there are no specific plans or measures around introducing lateral flow testing into events (and aren't these test only partially accurate anyway). I have to check Covid19 govern
  7. BBC reporting Mary Wilson has passed away aged 77.
  8. https://www.theguardian.com/music/2021/feb/05/disco-pioneer-tom-moulton-people-thought-i-was-from-another-planet Althought often typified as a Disco remixer, his contribution to uptempo Soul is equally notable.
  9. "Sonos will premiere a new station on Sonos Radio HD titled the Sound of Philadelphia, hosted and hand-curated by Kenny Gamble himself. In partnership with Warner Chappell Music, The Sound of Philadelphia will explore the label’s greatest hits from artists including The Jacksons, Patti LaBelle, the O’Jays, and more. The Sound of Philadelphia will take listeners behind-the-scenes with Gamble, who will share stories from his time writing, producing and working on 120 internationally-beloved albums and over 40 gold and platinum records. The station will feature special guests, as well unique prog

  11. In general, I would say leave the site as it is. I value it as it is right now and don't need loads more features. Content is ultimately down to the members and there may be ways to stimulate engagement further, but I'd just avoid anything too gimmicky.

  13. Great to see, preordered along with the new Birth Of Soul CD too.
