  1. My energy peaked in July 1977!
  2. Last summer I bought 4 NJD Speakers all with Celestions fitted (2 were bass bins) and I love them. They sound really nice and they lood good too
  3. Just a thought, but my 60 year old sister was brought up loving Motown & 60s music, so you may find that playing music from the 50s & 60s may be more relevant to most of the guests with a bit of 'rat pack' and you you should even be able to get away with things like Stevie's 'I just called to say I love you' And of course the war songs and sing a longs will suit the older members. But I've done some 50th wedding anniversary parties with the majority of people around 70, and the requests I received included Abba, Chris De Burgh, The Beatles and even Queen.
  4. I tend to only play mixes when asked. I was asked for 'Dirty Dancing Mix' and Grease Megamix on NYE. Played both, went down well
  5. I have Chanson D'amour by Art & Dottie Todd from 1958. Incidentally, it's miles better than Manhattan Transfer's cover.
  6. I had a NYE fancy dress party on a holiday camp. Played from 6.30-2 *=Requested Simply Red - Something Got Me Started (1991)(11) (3:56) Tom Jones - If He Should Ever Leave You (2008) (3:26) Anthoney Wright - Reset To Zero (2008) (3:44) Sam Cooke - I Love You For Sentimental Reasons (1963) (3:13) Neil Sedaka - Calendar Girl (1961)(8) (2:35) Roy Orbison - Candy Man [1964] (2:37) Love Affair - Everlasting Love (1968)(1) (2:55) Jackson 5 - ABC (1970)(8) (2:54) Osmonds - Having A Party [1975 - 28] (3:13) Billy Ocean - LOD (Love On Delivery) [1976 - 19] (2:39) Chesney Hawk
  7. Return to sender or The Wonder of You
  8. Favourite record of all time 'To Be Loved' by Jackie Wilson
  9. There should be a button for 'Other' I listen to an American channel online most. KJZY Smooth 93.7 FM They play a lot of smooth Jazz and other smooth music. It's completely different to the stuff I normally play so I like to hear something different when I'm not working. KYZY Smooth
  10. The first record I bought was 'I want to hold your hand' by the Beatles - I was 3 at the time and had my first record player by then. My big sister told me this. I can remember having records when I was little but I don't remember buying it. The first record I can remember buying was Knock on Wood by Eddie Floyd when I was 6!
  11. Pretty Vacant - Sex Pistols
  12. .....and in order the bring the Gary Glitter debate to an end, I offer a playlist from a village Christmas Dinner & Dance I did last weekend. About 200 people all from the same village aged between 19 and 75, so there was something for everyone and a great night was had by all. I even got 3 cheers at the end! *=Requested Billy May - Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer Mambo (?) (2:39) Andy Williams - Almost There (1965)(2) (2:53) Boney M - Mary's Boy Child (1978)(1) (2:21) Bee Gees - Islands In The Stream [1986] (4:15) Cabaret Diosa - Merry Mambo Christmas [?] (3:08) Frank
