  1. Was it really 17 years ago a handful of us had the very first night, the dance floor was still to be extended. The decks over the other side of the room too. Top spinner ever to attend over all those years imo has to be Kenny from over the border which must be over 12 years ago now with the one and only play in the club for The Mellow Souls....We Can Make It. Three people counting me jumped on the floor hardly able to believe our ears, me anyway for sure. We never wanted to go home and were all but thrown at going on 2ish.....they were the nights. That said the floor could do with another extension last i was there it was as packed as the floor in the old Twisted Wheel ! All true, ask Ann, Shirley, Mick and Kev. Lets hope it can continue.
  2. Harry how are you me old mate ? Happy New Year to Di and yourself. Further on in this thread there's a photo with Chris standing many years since he passed away, do you have or can you send me a link to the video of him giving it large near the stage when Eddie Holman was on. Had it but lost in a PC crash some years back. Never seen you since your spot at Radcliffe mate and that was a few years ago........hope we can meet up sometime.
  3. Sorry to hear about Dave, not seen him for some years now but always enjoyed chatting to him in the foyer at the Middleton nighters.....some great stories.....a lovely bloke.
  4. Bang on Davy........
  5. Just adding to what has already been said, Steve was a lovely bloke and to say this is a shock would be an understatement. Condolences to Chris.
  6. Agree with the 100% with the man at the top of the thread,bang on Paul.
  7. Late 70's i lent if you like about 20 records to a 'friend' i use the term loosely,a while went by and i says to him one day those records of mine and he answers back quick as a flash which records ? i laughed i just thought he was joking but then it turned serious with me about to kick his lights out and he still swore blind and denied he had ever got them,i let it go as i didn't want the inevitable which was a court appearance at that point.......say no more, so he got away with it,not valuable then but some may have been a few quid now but what a friend !! Hope you get yours returned soon mate.
  8. Not giving up just yet there's one out there somewhere.
  9. Must be someone not able to go,just a matter of that person seeing this post so trying to keep it current and on the page.
  10. Due to an a hitch ive been left without a ticket for tomorrow so if anyone has one going please PM me asap. Thanks
  11. Said it before on similar threads........House for sale,i love cheese but not this variety. Most commercial records played as there is a shed load to play before placing one of them on a deck at a night in my opinion
  12. Do i get a prize for being the only one going ? Free entry for catching Dave on the radio maybe ?
  13. Myself ive stopped going to some local to me as it seemed that because of more and more attending who hadn't a clue the promoters were catering increasingly for them and forgetting who had been their core audience for a decade,my opinion anyway.Sadly those i mention have a limited interest that spans a few overplayed classics and they don't want anything they don't know so its been a case of a takeover for the worst.Talking to quite a few this seems to be the case in many areas not just around here. One night a few years back i was up talking to a mate of ours Martyn who was at the decks and this bloke came up mouthing where was the motown the night advertised? well of course he didn't realise but he had just listened to a half a dozen in a row............but stoned love etc was all he knew......says it all really so although folk should feel welcome they should also appreciate they can't arrive and start dictating.
  14. For me anywhere you can keep the numbers until the end which is getting harder with a good mix of the underplayed uptempo and smattering of classics.............seems the overplayed classics crowd pull out early if you forgive the pun and so with crowd gone the night then becomes flat.So if, if only we could bring back Middleton in its old place with the great mix of sounds and dj's and a crowd well up for it from start to finish and Simon knows he was right among it too that would be a winner !! Great one Phil Dick put on a bit back at Morecambe, brilliant music and room but again those there dancing before midnight had all but gone by say 2am leaving it almost empty.Nighters due to this must have a limited time now to run Stoke aside maybe where only the huge numbers ensure the place still has a few at the end but maybe they leave through thinking they have heard everything played more than once ! the reason i don't and haven't attended there for a few years now.........very sad really all this as the nighter is the real deal no question. Last saturday was a first in that ive never had free ice pops and coffee at a nighter ! ice pops are they the future ?
