    silliest thing on emidisc

    when sounds were really hard to aquire Richard Selwood of the Wax Machine used to sell Emi´s for four pounds tenty five pence,as we were desperate to hear the top sounds in gloucester/Cheltenham at the time many were done from dodgy cassette(really dodgy)recordings eg:- ski-ing in the snow ,complete with clapping from the Catacombs and the most famous Thumb a ride with Tony Jebb introducing it! on a side note i bought a disc at the Mecca with The Virginia Wolves/Chubby Checker on it by the time i got back to Gloucester i had picked the shellack off it and just had a strange old single!

  5. Careful Pete,keep putting these type of podcasts up and you will be judged as one of those"no record dj´s"that are giving "our"music to the unwashed masses who because they weren´t born when a lot of them were first played haven´t heard them unless they had a relative that passed away and left them to"our kid´s young ún to "keep the faith wonderful thing the northern scene,wouldn´t miss my daily fix Steve by the way nice podcast............keep up the good work

    Underground, Overground Wom

    sort of off topic? is it just people(old) on the soul scene that go out every weekend or a general thing? i know when i started out as a youngster it was strange to see old people in the clubs, what i mean are there still disco divas etc on the lash every week Steve(bemused) here in my town in Germany they have "Schlager parties" Oldie party´s and they are terrible imagine the worst music from England in the 70,80 90´s they love it .God help me when "The Film"gets airview

    Underground, Overground Wom

    Totally agree Byrney,i had dropped out for a while to concentrate on family and work stuff(always collected though mostly oldies) then Dave Thorley asked me to dj at a Stafford oldies all-dayer,it was a total flop nobody was interested in the oldies and i realised then i had to rethink my ideas if i wanted to be asked again(which luckily i was) there generally was an oldies/new divide at Stafford although most of the dj´s mixed it up sensibly ,what you say about keele is also correct i went to the first one ,thought oh no! gave it a second try and never went again ,couldn´t bear it and saw the signs of what in my view the scene(generally )has become, nostalgia orientated i also stopped doing Wigan after the first oldies all-nighter . Love my oldies to listen to at home and if collecting also but you just can´t beat the wow effect of hearing a good unknown sound Steve

    Events - Problems Today ?

    one comment i do not understand? "no alcohol at niters like it used to be" does that mean people had not had a drink before? or didn´t drink in those days? don´t believe it, probably no drugs then either Years ago(or back in the day as it is now called)most people used to meet in pubs before the all-nighter started and get as much down their necks as possible (an English sport called last orders helped) it will never change ,nowadys there should be no need for it, members only,there will always be a way around that if the promoter thinks he may lose money . Good tip get Dave Thorley to dj ? at Bamberg he told!people with drinks in their hand "to get the fuck off the dance floor" didn´t make the slightest bit of difference Steve(beer monster)

  14. Clapping ,not to a record but Major Lance at the Torch "Soul clapping" slow then faster and faster until it reached a crescendo ,that will never be matched, I sent a tape to Mark Freeman with The Major live at Hanley,maybe he could/would put it up? so you could enjoy it Steve
