  3. Hi Mike

    My name is Yvonne Mc Calla, I am a local writer and historian. In fact I wrote horoscopes for a music magazine you published in the 80’s for a while. I am now working on a history project called ‘Ghost Moss Side Stories’ with Pete Kalu from ‘Commonword’ Est. 1977 it the leading grassroots organisation for writers in the Northwest.
    The project seeks to document the history of Moss Side & Hulme 1950’s – 1980’s. Clubs such as The Russell, The Reno, The Nile. We have received funding from the national Heritage Lottery and the project will result in an exhibition, which will go online and a book. I would love to interview for the project. You can ring or leave a message at the Commonword offices in Manchester, Tel: 0161 834 3777. If you can leave an email add or phone number that would be great! Hoping to hear from you soon. Yvonne McCalla

  7. Hi. Mike Shaft is amazing and his radio show on Sunset Radio in Manchester was superb. His Duncan Smith’s Best of 87 Mix or Best of 85 mix etc was some of the best mixing I have ever heard especially with the limitations in it’s day. Such superb specialised soul shows, Anyone know where I could get the Duncan Smith mixes from or listen back to Mike shows ?

  9. Yeah, just a moment in time. So glad i was born in this era and had the chance to hear so many wonderful records. Mike shaft’s back in bisiness was essential listening for me back in the 80’s and my record collection was the more richer for it, Respect to mike and all the crew that made it happen.
