Playing tracks by
Hinckley All Niter.
Another old "live" cassette tape recording for you. Back in 1983 what would have been Wigan Casino 10th Anniversary was celebrated at an all niter at Hinckley Leisure Centre. Here is 1 1/2 hrs of that night, obviously mainly oldies from the Wigan Casino years, but not all of it is.......I won't name it and spoil the surprise, but the first track here was a relative new discovery at the time, played here under it's cover up name and went on to become one of the classic 60's newies from the Stafford era....this was the first time I heard it after a mate said "just listen to this record Minshull's gonna play in a minute.....". Anyway, DJ's here are Keith Minshull, Dave Evison, a snippet of each of Tony Clayton and Steve Whittle, finished off with quite a bit of Brian Rae's closing spot. Not exactly the Wigan atmosphere on Casino recordings, but a little bit of history all the same......especially considering that the 40th Anniversary of the Casino is being celebrated this month.Enjoy!
