Message 1 - posted by dcsoxford, Feb 3, 2006

Hi there,
myself and two friends are trying to be able to listen to NORTHERN SOUL AND MOTOWN music in the OXFORD area.
Is it at all possible for the programmers at RADIO OXFORD to research the demand for 60's 70's and even to this present day, American music of this style and put out a pilot programme ??
Maybe along the lines of the hugely popular and internationally listened to MARY FOX SOUL SHOW on BBC RADIO STOKE (on the net; follow the links from bbc radio stoke)
Although Northern Soul was always associated with 100 mile an hour dancing ( 4 beats to the bar ) it now encompasses nearly all pre-funk soul and is still being discovered in the vaults of Motown and other record labels.
If any listeners would like to offer veiws, help, advice, or even chat about the best music to come out of America we can reached on our dedicated email address;

Hello,
I live in the Witney area & have been listening to Northern Soul for the last 20 years, attended 100 club on a regular basis. Unfortunately to my knowledge Oxford has never had a proper Northern Soul night.
There are nights that claim to play it, but when looked into they don't really.
Hoped i'm proved wrong.

UPDATE;
We have approached several venues ( mainly Cowley Road area,)but are being asked what are the numbers likely to attend?
This is difficult to judge due to the lack of feedback we are receiving.
What we need is you to *** GET IN TOUCH ***
"We know you are out there" as we have had over 200 hits and climbing, on dailyinfo.co.uk ;;read other messages on this topic to get there as we cannot directly give our e-address on this board.
We are NOT doing this for any monetary gain whatsoever, purely for the love of the music and it would be a great pity and shame that the opportunity to listen to this great music in OXFORD may be missed.
Many thanks for reading this,
Steve, Maz, and Del.
