At the age of 16 in 1983 I began working in Chesterfield, I met Pete Stone who had some patches on his bag, Samantha’s the one I noticed, we got chatting about the music and he loaned me his record collection which I taped (still have the tapes) and this began my love affair with Soul Music. I have been a collector, DJ, promoter and a contributor of some written works over the years, mainly to do with the scene post Wigan, which seems to be ignored by too many. I don’t go out as much these days but the music is still as strong, still buying and listening. Favourite ever record: Tommy Ridgely – My Love Gets Stronger.
