Northern Soul Special

This weekend we're celebrating 40 years since Wigan Casino hosted its first Northern Soul all-nighter.

This weekend we're celebrating 40 years since Wigan Casino hosted its first Northern Soul all-nighter. This venue carried forward the legacy created by clubs such as the Golden Torch, the Catacombs and the Twisted Wheel. So we want to hear your experiences of going to northern soul nights back in the day, dancing to the likes of Jackie Wilson, Edwin Starr and Junior Walker. Are you still hitting the clubs every weekend or you're a newcomer to the scene. Get in touch with a tune, we'd love to hear from you: funk.6music@bbc.co.uk.
