    Unpublished Wigan Photos

    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 out......so 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.

    Steve Crozier (Gateshead) RIP

    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.

    Stolen Records

    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.

    Which Northern Track You Dislike The Most

    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

    Do You Like To Feel Welcome

    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.

    The Perfect Allnighter?

    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 ?
