    Bobby Smith

    I’ll tell you the story about Bobbie Smith and how it came to be played. Back in the early 80’s I had boxes of junk records at my Mums. George Romanis (R.I.P), used to get oddball stuff off me and asked if he could come and have a look thru what I had. I actually used to refer to It as my ‘Shit Box’ coz to me everything in it was rubbish; rejects and totally none Northern. Bear in mind this was late Wigan / Early St..

    Articles: HOF: Mike Terry - Pre Production Inductee

    I think I can add something to this which may be of interest. Way back in the late 70’s and thru to the 80’s and 90’s I was tracking people like crazy; artists, producers, songwriters etc. I was writing letters and making phone calls like a mad man! I have about 15 files full of letters from those years from many big name label credits; Charlie Calello, Sandy Linzer, Joe Hunter, Sammy Lowe, Jet Loring, Chuck Holiday, ..

    Best live performance

    Eddie Holman at Lowton many many years ago. He was absolutely outstanding. Lowton was packed every time it was on, but sometimes with quite a lot of handbag dancers, who obviously didn’t have a clue who he was and consequently didn’t bother turning up to hear him perform. It was half empty as I recall, compared to ‘normal’ nights. Shame coz he was fantastic vocally and probably (for overall vocal range) one of the best s..

    Great poem mate, it’s clear you’re a wordsmith.......But I think there’s some things I’d have to disagree with. Your poem here, is mighty fine......As an alternative view though, here is mine...... No disrespect to you at all my friend......But the oldies newies thing will persist to the end What can you say about the oldies firm......Antiquated, dinosoars, like Keegans curly perm! There’s never been a..

    I managed 3 teams under Supporting People funding framework. It was a nightmare, and so typified housing and homelessness funding; tying managers and staff up in meaningless long winded box ticking and hoop-jumping exercises. I realised it was completely ‘mickey mouse’ when in an audit, my Asylum Seekers and Refugees Tenancy Support Service was criticised on a point about diversity!! Pretty funny when you think of the divers..

    I work in housing and homelessness too and have done for nearly 30 years, in both the Voluntary and now Statutory sector, so I think I’m qualified to say.....Homelessness is a complicated issue; it’s multi-layered. On the one hand you have the ‘Micro’reasons why people become homeless (relationship breakdown, abuse, drink, drugs, loss of job etc etc), but then you got the ‘Macro’ reasons (lack of affordable housing,..

    It’s simple: It’s called Supply and Demand! It’s the oldest transaction equation known to man isn’t it; no surprise there. A couple of things maybe worth mentioning here: 1. For the ‘inflated price’ commentators........Does anyone here ever complain when they sell that (now) rare record they bought in the 70’s (for 70’s prices!) for today’s market or (inflated)value? Do they agree to settle for a much lesser am..
