Andre Palfrey-Martin Collection
A great disc jockey and showman and much loved in the Hastings area. Here’s an interesting link to his record collection:
A rare picture of Steve from 1976 with Chris Gentry at the Pye Records ‘Black Umbrella’ launch party.
Tony Davies….Steve Maxted used to have a weekly show at the Aquarius nightclub in George St ( later to become Saturdays) he’d dance around the stage balancing a chair on his chin and competitions to see who could eat the most boiled eggs or pickled onions in a certain amount of time, winner getting a bottle of wine. He’d shout out ” first girl on stage with red knickers “and there would be a stampede of girls rushing up on stage, again ,winner getting a bottle of wine. Needless to say, the place was always packed. !!! 🙂
