TRUE BRUMMIE MODERATOR
thanks for the pic ted and well done on posting your first one....happy days
Thanks for the kind words. Appreciated.Hi Ted, really enjoyed those tracks, the 2nd one I thought had a touch of the man in black's voice when you went down real low. Kind regards. I started a thread some time ago stating the groups we have seen, I bet you will beat us all.
It is really touching to be remembered after all these years. Thanks for that.Hi Ted,
You're Bob! Sorry for my 'senior confusion' over your name. No confusion of remembering you as a great guy and your group as top notch. You always delivered a first class set. Great times.
Hello OneSteveM and welcome.I may be late to this discussion. I recall going to the Rum Runner on many Friday nights between 1972 and 1974, arriving about 9pm and leaving at closing time. I have two key memories of my nights there, the first being the way the dance floor cleared when Nutbush City Limits played and two enthusiastic females launched into a dance of flailing arms and writhing bodies. Most entertaining.
The other memory was meeting a lovely girl, Pamela, who I went out with for a year.
Thanks for the memories, as they say.
Hyah O and G.I remember the BBC TV series Gangsters that used the Rum Runner,they changed the name to some thing else, something cow related I think. I remember the club name outside was made up of those little reflective metal discs that moved and caught the light. It looked really tacky but that was the BBC in the late 70's.
I remember a car chase outside the fire station where the cars were meant to be traveling at speed swerving all over the road. The police had refused the Beeb permission to go at speed around the Queensway, so they made out they were going fast, boy did it look stupid.
Pat Roach played the part of a IRA heavy.
Gansters 1976 Incident 3 and Incident 4. I knew Pat well, we went to Blackpool to see the lights in his Bentley, it ran on LPG, it was funny driving down the mile with people staring at us in the car. Mind you the PAT *** reg did give it away some what. We did have some good times, and he was very proud of the various parts he played no matter how small.
He would also go out of his way to help people.
Glad I could bring back some happy memories. It's surprising how a few things can bring back a whole load of memories.Thanks O and G.
I Googled it and found it all on You Tube.
It seems that most of it was shot in the Rum and Gas Street basin.
I really enjoyed seeing the old place again almost exactly as I knew it before the eighties renovations.
Never saw any strippers in the sixties though, but you can't have everything i suppose.
Great stuff.a load
