"Steve Mayne"
Of 'Mayne Coaches' fame
Another warm blast from the past - a close friend when I lived in Manchester... We argued from opening to closing time on many occasions, but still remained friends.


Ah, that's interesting, Jim. Steve was a resident at Harry Boardman's club at the same time I was. I used to go back for coffee to his luxurious home (he had made more than a few bob from the coach company) after I'd played Warrington Folk Club. He always used to find it amusing that a rich capitalist like him should count so many lefties amongst his friends, and recalled that Ewan always enjoyed a dip in his swimming pool!

Sadly no longer with us.
