    Thanks to all who danced and listened.

    • Will have a listen and probably a dance to the sets, all in good time. Many thanks Paddy & Thull, great posts ;0)

    • Blinding sets as ever Paddy.

    • Cheers Chris. Need some more DJs to post but they're all busy on facebook!


    • I have not done anything for a while now Paddy. A friend has asked me to do a set at a club in Lanarkshire but i would rather check the place out first and see what sort of music is the norm. Its been that long that I would probably make an arse of it ha ha

    • You'd be great Chris. Which club?

    • Its called the Magic Roundabout and is in Bellshill as far as I know Paddy. I would have liked to have checked it out but i have hardly been out since the start of the year. It has definitely been my quietest time for over a decade re gigs or club nights. I suppose Troon is not far away and that is usually very good.

    • See you at Troon :-)

    • ... yes, two great sets. Would have loved to be there!
