    I went to the casino 1973 -1977 nearly every weekend, also Blackpool mecca's highland room. weekdays I went to:
    Tues - broadway hotel, Morecambe (northern soul night)
    Wed - No12 club , Lancaster - (soul night)
    Thurs - Ibis club, Kendal - (soul night).
    Fri - Morecambe pier, (soul night.)
    I was pretty keen on the dancin' & reasonably good given the amount of practise I got. I had some fantastic clothes too, not like the **** from the local boutiques either, proper soul boy stuff.
    I only quit because of "saturday night fever" divvies wreckin the whole dance scene with commercialised **** - like so many other disillusioned brothers, ended up listening to either fusion jazz or punk.
    I still listen to a few NS radio shows to this day - wish we had those back in the day!!!

    Too young to have experienced the halcyon days of NS, but am a huge fan of the music.

    Yeah, we used to take a lot of stick for "dancing on yer own" which most folks didn't do back in the day..lol..
    Still they were good days, & it kept you really fit. When I try it these days, my mouth gets dry then I need a drink - resulting in me getting too legless to dance - so I don't dance no more
