  14. and the famous laser light show in Legends, amazing innocent times…and then a dirty donner kebab from across the road in the kebab house with the chicken wire windows…hahaha brill timezzzzzzzz

  15. I have both best of 1984 and 1985 mixes by Chad Jackson. I got them of Kenny in Spin In who I knew quite well at the time. I believe they are copies of the master tapes, not recorded off the radio and therefore don’t have any of the Piccadilly Radio jingles.
    I digitised them a few years back from my master cassettes.

    Does anyone remember the Paul Mulhearn HipHop mix that he pieced together using 3 cassette decks (no turntables) STUNNING. Unfortunately, I believe he committed suicide shortly afterwards.

    • Yes i do remember the paul mulhern mix.it was played on the stu allen show,he did really well.i was into mixing big time.those were the days,is there any chance of getting copies of those mixes from you.Mine sound really crappy now(must of played them too much!)

    • Dear Twosheds

      I would love a copy of your digitised versions

  34. Hi has any one got the stu Allen mixs

  35. A time when music had a true quality of samples…vocals….timing….movement..lyrics that ment something…do i need say anymore.x u cant explain it unless u felt what it was.

  36. I am proud back in the day i recorded one of the greatest live mixes from Piccadilly Radio thanks to an un sung legend Chad Jackson who kissed no ones back side stayed true the music The Legendary Gregg Wilson speaks very highly of Chad Jackson in his late interviews 2me 2 legends of the north west dance music scene.
