Keith Minshull

I Still Remember the Feeling

Stacks Image 7
Keith Minshull, another somewhat unsung hero of the scene who rarely gets the recognition he deserves. A veteran of the Golden Torch and Wigan Casino, Keith was running all-nighters at the Top Of The World prior to it becoming the Stafford we know. He teamed up with Dave Thorley and began promoting all-nighters under the Top Dog Soul Club banner in early 1982 up until May 1983 when the Drifters failed to perform.

Not all the tracks in the following podcast are discoveries of, or first played by Keith. There are some Casino biggies, particularly for Richard Searling, some Stafford “oldies”, Dave Withers with the unissued Motown for instance and the odd spin or two for Gary Rushbrooke, all along side some plays made popular by Keith. One thing is for sure Keith’s last hour spots were enjoyed many many and he he certainly knew how to work a floor.
