Started my soul education in Liverpool at the Cavern and Mardi Gras clubs, Billy Butler was my teacher.
Moved on to the Torch and also spent many a happy friday at the Raven in Whitchurch, Soul Sam was our guru then.
Have been collecting Northern soul ever since those days but recently have started to sell my vinyl and collect tracks on Cd or digital now.
Now live in Devon and Cornwall having retired in 2008 and spend my time with my 4 grandkids, eldest is 19 so he keeps me up to date with tracks and technology.
My other big passions in life are Liverpool FC and surfing. Watching LFC win the European cup in Istanbul with my son was nearly as exciting as hearing Bobby Hebbs Love love love for the first time at the Torch Stoke!!
