Gordy Richards

I started dj-ing in Manchester with Gary Lane and Ugly Ray Teret at the Can-Can behind Cross Street, Manchester. I then moved on to Sale Locano and the Christal Club in Glossop with Ugly.

I then joined the Rowntrees group at Sound, Corporation St and did different days at Top of the Town with Gary Lane, Rowntrees Spring Gardens with Malcolm Just and Barons Bier Keller on Oxford Rd facing Tiffanys which was also a Rowntrees club - all in mid 60s.

I then became manager and licencee of Rowntrees Sound at the end of the 60s.

I am retired now, married 40 years to my wife Jean. We got married at the Cathedral in 1972 and just after that I became manager of Rowntrees Rafters on Oxford Rd. We have one son Brian and a grandson Leon and still live in Manchester.
