I am no expert, but they were naff dancers, they didn't get anywhere near what the thing was like in the 1970's

One of the younger keepers of the Northern Soul flame is behind a 45th anniversary tribute all-night to the legendary Wigan Casino Club. Hundreds of devotees are expected to descend on Wigan Roller Rink to mark the month the iconic venue first opened its doors in September 1973.

That was never a NS song!
"Papa-Oom-Mow-Mow" is a 1962 novelty nonsensical doo-wop song by the Rivingtons.

Mind, you could play status quo in an all nighter and many would dance to it.

That's nonsense, winstanley wasnt even in the top 5. He made a career out of NS dj'ing is all.

Russ played (in Wigan) what he wanted to sell (in Wigan), so, whatever he played (in Wigan) and sold (in Wigan) bacame Northern Soul in Wigan and was played in Wigan. 

That's why I said  ---  "Whatever Russ said was Northern Soul WAS Northern Soul. Well, it was in Wiggin, laaaaike!"

That's nonsense, and it wasn't even typed in Wigan.

In fact, Steve Whittle made a bigger contribution to the Soul scene.

Winstanley had a record shop in Hallgate (Upstairs on Jaxons court) that closed down quite quickly. Do you know why?....I said (typed) Do you know why?

I know he had a record shop, in Hallgate,  that wasn't upstairs in Jackson's Court and didn't  'close down quite quickly'!
