Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the world’s No.1 disco – the high temple of Northern Soul – the legendary WIGAN CASINO, Lancashire. Set against a backdrop of rampant inflation, the 3- day working week and national power cuts, Northern Soul emerged as an escape, a secret society, a haven for like-minded teenagers. Every Saturday night for eight years, the faithful made the pilgrimage to the desolate mill town of Wigan to a broken down, pre-War dancehall on Station Road. It was a sanctuary, a special place of togetherness, elitism, and the catalyst for the music scene’s longest enduring sub-culture… Northern Soul. Our exclusive playlist highlights key records from the thousands played at the famed all-nighters by its original founding deejays, Russ Winstanley, Kev Roberts and Richard Searling. Keep The Faith…
