Ady Pountain

I’m In With The Downtown Crowd

After some moths of chasing I’m pleased to say that I managed to corner Ady and with his and others help I’ve managed to put together 31 tracks that Ady played in the early days of Stafford.

Ady a favourite DJ of mine and always look forward to hearing his sets, he has great taste and always has a few pleasant surprises in his sets.

Ady was one of the Yate DJ’s and one of the original Stafford DJ’s, he helped Dave secure the deal for the use of the Top Of The World Club for the all-nighters. As you can see from the playlist there is a mixture of late Yate spins, some that were considered oldies maybe although they’d only been played for a year or two at places like Wigan and some Stafford “newies”.

It is as you will see across the board as we would expect at Stafford and there is just shy of one and a half hours music for your listening pleasure.

Ady also had a full set of the Unissued Motown that appeared in the early 80’s but as I’ve included many in the podcasts of Dave Withers I didn’t use any for Ady’s podcasts. I’m also planning to do a podcast featuring just the unreleased Motown so keep an eye out for that one (or two).

Ian Clark

Trick Bag

Ian Clark one of the best and nicest DJ’s of his time, dare I say it sorely missed from the decks. One of the hardest working DJ’s, always working to source dance floor delights. Not always exclusives (although he did have these as well) but he had many of the day’s big records and he had a good ear and knew what the dance floor needed. Ian was one of those who came with Dave from Yate to Stafford and carried on with the same attitude and spirit of Yate and helped make Stafford what it was. A popular DJ during the late 70’s and 80’s, as well as Yate and Stafford he was a regular at the 100 Club into the later 80’s.
