How sad it is to think how many mobile jocks there used to be and yet all now (pretty much) have been replaced by a laptop and a playlist. if anyone has any pics, thoughts or memories on this subject please let me know as I would love to write an article for ‘Hastings Town’ on all this…

Peter Bridger… You can add the Wipeout Roadshow to that list though I don’t think we could ever afford to advertise. I was the transport on account of having a Reliant Van!

Dawn Leaney… Silver Star Disco…. D.J s were big Baz and Allen Mills anyone remember this?

Mick O’Dowd… I should have been on the list as I was mobile during these times as well as promoting. I used Steve Fox & Labrath Roadshow for alot of gigs. Anybody know what happened to Steve?

Leigh Wieland-Boys… Detroit Disco were very popular in the 70s – the DJ was Roger Gerrish, used to hire them for work socials
