Roger Eagle

        

Roger was seen as the utimate Northern Soul DJ, creating a huge following during his time at the Twisted Wheel.

After leaving the Wheel in '66, he moved to the Blue Note in Gore Street, then the Staxx Club (in the Three Coins in Fountain Street).

An unusual change in scene for Roger was his move to the Magic Village in Cromford Court (old Jigsaw) where he transformed his playlist to include rock - certainly much heavier than the funk and Northern Soul sounds that he created a huge market for in the North-West.

Sadly Roger died in 1999, following a long illness.
