IF you have seen the film about Northern Soul and like the music, make sure you tune in to the Soul Show every Thursday evening.
Our resident soul man is the velvety-voiced Tony Prince, whose show takes you from the 1960s right through to the soul scene today.
The show includes all your favourite northern AS April is Bowel Cancer Awareness Month, I’d like to take this opportunity to talk about the importance of screening.
Not only is bowel cancer far easier to treat and cure if found early, it can also pick up non-cancerous growths (polyps), and classic soul, including a few rarities and some classic motown. Let the prince tantalise your ears as he re-visits phenomenal venues such as Wigan Casino, which in its heyday had 650,000 members worldwide; the Twisted Wheel in Manchester and the unforgettable Torch in Stoke. Tony will also have some guest presenters in the studio with him – tune in to find out who. You can also listen out for forthcoming events in the area while practising your back drops and spins.
Circle skirts, brogues and bags are the required attire – and don’t forget the talc!
Forthcoming events will also be listed on our website thethread.org. uk. If you would like to get involved, give the office a call on 01625 576689 or email office@ thethread.org.uk.
