  1. A big thanks to Julie & Richard for letting me loose behind the decks once again, got some nice $ounds lined up for Friday.I look forward to seeing you all.Regards Fred
  2. Just shows the bbc are out of touch with their listeners, or do they really care? the fact that many people signed the petition,seemed to change bbc's decision makers mind and to put on special one offs with Brian, only seems to add insult to injury.Sadly it's the usual case of after the horse has bolted.Only to read later that Tony Blackburn will be presenting future shows from 6.00am like someone has said above if it wasnt for bbc I player I just wonder how many regular listeners would tune in at all Regards Fred.
  3. Looking forward to the first of 2017's Leeds Central Re-unions and 6th anniversary This being one of if not the best in the country. You've just got to get down to experience the day and savour the place,the(Soulies (Centralites), the atmosphere,the Dj's,the "$oul $ounds" and be part of an original venue,original Dj's, a place filled with like minded people who come from all over the country to be together and have a truly fantastic day. You will hear people who have been for the first time say "what a fantastic atmosphere".See you all on Sunday Regards Fred

  5. how about Bobby Patterson what a wonderful night for love. Regards Fred
  6. The question is, is it Juke box or Duke box? Regards Fred
  7. I remember when I was a teenager and used to frequent a coffee bar in Huddersfield, namely Studio 58 on new street where a lot of the Huddersfield "wheel" crowd used to go they had lots a tasty "wheel soul sounds" on the juke box, one notable record which immediately comes to mind was "On Broadway " by the Drifters. Studio 58 was the place to be and be seen where the Huddersfield "In crowd" were always there and where us young uns would like to be in and amongst them.People I can remember from those times were:- Ralph Senior,Frankie Carr, "Cobber" whose real name was Ian Hicks and his mate Keith Nestor, Pip,Mick Haigh, (mosh) Lesley Brown, Andy Crossley and Dave Clegg,I,'m sure i've missed a lot off but we're talking many years ago. Regards Fred Ward
  8. Didn't Al Stephenson have a lot of his collection on the juke box? Regards Fred
  9. A big hi Jon, from an old soulie, I have just seen a clip of you dancing in Blackpool last year, truly inspirational.By the way you dance anyone would have thought you'd been on the scene for many years. By that i mean it as a compliment as you dance so well.The record playing "Sweet Happiness " by Newbie & Johnson is one of my all time fav's.I have also seen some of your play lists on you tube which are exactly my taste in Northern soul. I don't know if you get about a bit on the scene as I am a resident dj at the "Leeds Central" soul club and was one of the original dj's in the 70's.I'm sure it would be right up your street as the music played is as it was all those years ago and the same as your you tube records.The Central reunion all dayers are on every two months with the next one being on the 19th Feb.Then two months on always the third Sunday in the month.I'm sure you'd really enjoy yourself. Seeing you dance at Blackpool makes me proud to be a "Northern Soulie". If you do come across to the Central be sure to introduce yourself to me . Regards Fred Ward.
  10. Niet vloeiend maar ik kan krijgen door. HI Robb have been past the statue you mentioned many times in scheveningen you must be proud. Looks like you get about a bit seems an interesting job.I have been coming over to the Netherlands ever since I was born and have a big family over there and have 7 cousins jotted all over.Was last over in September. All the best for the new year Regards Fred.
