Richard Searling
Wigan Casino
13th April 2004

Excerpt from an MDMArchive interview with Richard Searling, 2004.

"One of the leading lights of the Northern Soul movement, Richard initially made his name at Va-Va's in Bolton, where he gained major kudos for unearthing one of the scene's defining tracks, 'Tainted Love' by Gloria Jones (subsequently to become a multi-million selling cover version by Soft Cell). Forming one of the most famous DJ partnerships of all, when he hooked up with Russ Winstanley at Wigan Casino, Richard is a Soul aficionado of the highest order."
