Cath The Topic's gig list - back to 1960! (26) RE: The Topic's gig list - back to 1960! 07 Feb 11

I was involved in doing the bookings around late 60's and early 70's with my then husband and we certainly co-operated with Johnny and Rita Walls at the Memphis in Leeds as we arranged mini tours for guests with Thursday in Leeds, Friday in Bradford and Sunday at Bradshaw. I think we also used to send them over to Lancashire for Saturday gigs!
I remember the move to the Star as I put the curtains up in the room and I remember taking my son (now aged 40) in one Saturday afternoon and Marion rushed off to check if it was legal. He (not Marion) was about 3 months old at the time.
Martyn Windham Read was a guest in early 1970 but I can't remember the date but I do remember going over to Leeds to meet him and take him back to Cullingworth to stay.
I could write more but I have a festival committee meeting in a few minutes!
