My DJ career started way back in 1980 at a club called the Rum Runner. The club was situated on Broad Street – not the Broad Street we know today. Back then there were a couple of pubs, a cafe, a curry house and Lee Longlands.
On my 40someting birthday I was working at Leftfoot, a night Adam Regan and I ran on a monthly basis at the Custard Factory. I was approched by Mark ‘Mack’ McDonald, an old friend from the Rum Runner days, he passed me a package and wished me a happy birthday. I opened it and it was a recording of me DJ’ing at the Rum Runner in 1983, I did not know this recording existed.
So, for your listening pleasure…and entertainment is that recording to download for the first time ever.
