Marple General Youth Club (Marple)

Fantastic club in the early sixties.Had a group every Thursday &Sunday. Most of the Manchester groups played there.

Any memories?

David Garnett - 3/4/12

Are you the Dave Garnett who's dad owned the ARK CAFE on the canal bridge in Marple where we all met up on Sunday afternoon to listen to The TopTwenty on the BUSH RADIO presented by ALAN (FLUFF)FREEMAN way back in the sixties?

If you are I wonder I you still remember me DAVE NIBBLOCK and myself were the disc jocks who played the music from high up in the rafters on the back wall A postman called DAVE WYATT ran the club and between us booked the acts THE UNDERTAKERS, REVEREND BLACK AND THE ROCKING VICARS, FRANKENSTEIN AND THE MONSTERS, THE FOUR MOST, THE CRESTAS, CYRUS K HAMMERBLOWER AND THE ABCD TWISTERS, BOBBY AND THE BLUE DIAMONDS and our own home group TONY LANE AND THE DELTONES and hundreds more.

Writing this Memories Flood Back, 50 Years it seems like only yesterday. Please get in touch or anyone else out there who knows me and maybe between us we can put together all our Memories and bring this once brilliant club back to life again if only in words and memories and lets see how many groups we can remember.
