  1. Hi Wolfe Peter Hein, I worked at Elastic Yarns late sixties/ early seventies ( see previous posts) Sorry to inform you that Bill Metcalf passed away earlier this year in a nursing home in Nottingham. For the last couple of years I have been meeting up with Alan Rose and a few others twice a year for a meal and Alan is often in touch by e-mail. Regards Dave Callard

      Hi thanks for the message - we have been into northern since the early 70s and my husband has promoted and DJ'd at a number of venues over the years. We don't tend to go out as much as we used to- there are a few that we try and regulalrly attend, we don't go to the Winding Wheel as we prefer more underplayed stuff these days.
