“Used to work mid week @ The Sporran 77/78 .It was run by a guy called Costa's . During the day the downstairs disco was used for dining , they actually had the hot plates behind the dj booth , at night they were covered with a thin metal plate ( ie. shelf for records) .One Thursday night I was doubling up with the Pembroke Halls (Walkden)
arrived about 11 with two cases of vinyl (students night Rock n Reggae) some bright spark had left one of the hot plates on yes you guessed it ! 20 mins later half my tunes had melted !oh happy days:-)”
