Robin Salter: Night After Night

The Modern Soul seems to have taken a bit of a back seat whilst the 6t’s Mafia were racketeering their way through Stafford with their 60’s “newies”. But Robin and Dave T were both still introducing Modern Soul, both new and the odd classic or two to the Stafford crowd. We have here another hour of what Robin was playing during the mid 80’s at Stafford and other places and again if I don’t say so myself an excellent selection of 70’s and 80’s soul.

Keb Darge: Keep The Faith

Right Click to Download


This is probably the last full podcast of Keb’s and a great selection if I don’t say so myself. There are tracks of Keb’s that are forgotten, tracks I can’t source and tracks no matter how hard I’ve looked and how many times I’ve asked I can’t identify. There will be odd Keb tracks in various DJ podcasts when I have completed all the DJ’s and left with odds and sods o until them this will probably be the last Keb podcast. As I mentioned before, Keb did pick up 45’s other’s dropped, he did reactivate some classic Stafford and Wigan oldies he though fitted in the with the attitude, spirit and the essence of what Stafford was about, they will have been featured by and large in other podcasts in this Story, Dave Withers, Guy etc etc.

Keb Darge: Shy Guy!

Stafford (2 of 26)

Here we are with more great sounds ( and a couple best forgotten) from Keb Darge. Some have long since been forgotten for the wrong reasons mind and some of the so called DJ’s of today could do no worse than look amongst this story for some inspiration rather than following the pack as seems to be the norm these days.

Anyway I’ve one more podcast to do and that will just about cover Keb’s input at Stafford. Obviously some records have been forgotten, others I have on live recording but no one knows what they are so until I find out what they are and get a decent sound file then on the l;I’ve recordings they shall remain. Both Keb and Guy would pick up records each of them dropped, they would also feature rare quality oldies that they thought captured the spirit and essence of what Stafford was about.
