Spotlight On The Albion (Dukinfield) How long have you been in the licensed trade? Ann, worked for my parents since the age 18 in various pubs and clubs and took Oakwood Glossop in November 2004 and then the Albion Aug 2008. Vinny, worked at The Globe Ashton 1971-1978 then along with Ann The Oakwood in Nov 2004 and The Albion in Aug 2008. WHAT MADE YOU GO INTO THE LICENSED TRADE? Ann my parents where landlord/lady of Albion in 1961 for 4 years. I feel like have been behind a bar ever since. I pulled my first pint aged 5!!! So it seems a natural progression.

I

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN AT THE ALBION? SINCE 4th August 2008 WHAT MADE YOU CHOOSE THE ALBION? As I said my parents had this pub when I was a little girl. We always wanted to return to Dukinfield. I feel I have come a full circle. I wish my parents could have been here to see it. WHAT TYPE OF PUB DO YOU CLASS IT HAS (FAMILY, SPORT ETC)? A Local community pub with traditional activities, showing all football games. We also have darts, pool and football teams as well as live entertainment. DO YOU HAVE SPORTS TEAMS? We have a Sunday morning football team in the Tameside league, we also have Monday darts, dominos and crib teams in the Dukinfield league. Tuesday darts, dominos and crib in the Ashton league also on a Tuesday we have a ladies darts team that play in the Stalybridge and district league, Thursday we have a mens darts playing in the Hyde league. DO YOU HAVE FUTURE PLANS FOR THE VENUE? Just to carry on in the same way, giving our customers what they want. Trying to establish ourselves as an alternative funeral wake venue, giving great value . HAVE YOU HAD ANY MEMORABLE EXPERIENCES DURING YOUR TIME AT THE ALBION, OR IS THERE A CERTAIN CHARACTER WHO YOU WOULD LIKE TO MENTION? All our customers are characters in their own way and it would be impossible to mention all of them. However we do have a young man who comes in nearly every night and watches any football!! Dave Morris is a total man city fan, but we tease him that he is a closet red!!!!! A great young man.. SINCE YOU HAVE BEEN AT THE ALBION HAVE YOU MADE ANY SIGNIFICANT CHANGES? We have recently had all the windows replaced which will hopefully make it much warmer in the winter. The pub has been re-rendered outside and the beer garden made presentable. Inside everywhere has been decorated and we have new furniture. As we now show all live football games and provide free half time food for city and united games. We are still going strong while many around us are floundering, so we must be doing something right!!!.

Happy Mirthday Ken Legendary ‘King of Mirth’ Ken Dodd will be celebrating his 85th birthday in November and still has no plans of retiring. Most men his age would settle for a pipe and slippers lifestyle but not Ken. Instead he chooses to travel thousands of miles a year around Britain presenting his shows, all to sell out audiences. He says ‘As long as people keep coming to my shows, keep laughing and keep enjoying themselves, I’ll keep on touring’. ‘I just love slaving over hot audiences it’s my life, my favorite place is the theater’. He then quipped .”Tell me young David where are you from?” “ Ashton under Lyne” I replied. “‘You know what they call people born in Ashton”…..”Babies’. Ken was winding down an hour after a five hour plus performance on stage at Torquay’s Princess Theatre. His fiancee, sidekick and support act Anne (Jones) was rushing around gathering up their belongings and packing their People Carrier. ‘You on holiday then’ she called out adding ‘There’s a crowd Ken’; she was referring to those gathered outside the stage door hoping for an autograph. It was a mixture of ages mainly over 50’s but perhaps surprisingly a good many in their early 20’s to 30’s. Ken rarely gives interviews and yet not for the first time here I was in his company. Glancing at my watch, it was 1.15am I felt a little guilty as if I was depriving those awaiting fans their time with him. We spoke about Tameside Hippodrome, over the years Ken had been a regular performer on its stage, In October of 2004 he unveiled a Blue Plaque commemorating one hundred years of entertainment at the venue. He explained how saddened he was when hearing of the theatres closure and of his delight on learning it may reopen. “It’s a lovely theater” I always enjoyed my visits there’ he said’ They were always lovely audiences and so were the staff’. Hopefully if all goes well with the plans already in the pipeline, Ken may once again tread the Hippodromes boards, one things for sure he will not have retired. Some interesting facts you may not know about Ken . He was named by the people of his native Merseyside as “The Greatest Merseysider” runners up were John Lennon and Sir Paul McCartney He was the best selling recording artiste of the 60’s second only to the Beatles. He had 19 top 40 chart hits. His recording of ‘Tears’ stayed at Number 1 for six weeks and it is number 10 in the top twenty best selling records of all time. He is the recipient of the ‘The Living Legend’ award from the British Comedy Society. He has won the British Comedy Award for a lifetime achievement in Comedy.

Yesterdays

People & Places Every generation looks back to the past and says things were so much better then. If they were or not we all hold memories of those bygone days. Each month we will be taking a look at some of the acts, clubs, pubs and events of yesteryear. We hope you will remember some of them and that those memories come flooding back. During the mid’ 70’s one of the most loved artistes on the northern club circuit was the American nightclub tenor Soloman King. Perhaps best remembered for his 1967/8 smash ‘She Wears My Ring’ which enjoyed a five month stay in the British chart peaking at number three. The song which was a worldwide hit, charting in forty different countries and it is still popular today at weddings in most English speaking nations. Soloman King was born Allen Levy in Lexington Kentucky in 1932, Twenty years later he began singing professionally and for a time he was a member of the Jordanaires, Elvis Presley’s backing group. It as been said that King reached the high notes which Elvis could not reach. In 1960 he married Canadian journalist Henny Lowy and the couple moved to England setting up home in Prestwich Manchester. While trying to make it as s solo singer in Britain he was spotted by manager Gordon Mills the man behind Tom Jones and Engleburt Humperdinck. Mills signed King to his stable and under his guidance he released ‘She Wears My Ring the B side of which was a Mills composition ‘I Get That Feeling Over You’. With the record flying high Soloman embarked on a 1968 nation wide tour with Kathy Kirby, and also stared in his own Blackpool summer season. Kings follow up ‘When We Were Young’ penned by hit makers Barry Mason and Les Reed became his second chart entry. The albums ‘She Wears My Ring’ (68) King Of Songs (69) and You’ll Never Walk Alone (71) proved popular. However, those albums like his stage act featured the most unlikely songs, many Jewish numbers and wartime favorites, the likes of ‘White Cliffs of Dover’ were included. This choice of material was not appreciated by the average pop music fan who turned their back on him, Kings star soon began to fade. Undaunted the 6ft 8in man mountain with his powerful voice turned to the cabaret circuit where his act was more suited. It was in these clubs where he found his audience and how that audience adored him In the Manchester area he topped the bill at venues such as ‘The Talk of The North and the Broadway. I even saw him perform at the Ashton under Lyne Bowling Club on Knowle Avenue. To this day I have yet to see such an ovation for an act in such a club. I once had the pleasure of interviewing Soloman and his wife Henny for a radio magazine I was working for. They invited me to their luxury Preswich Home where he informed me of how much he loved British audiences especially those in the Manchester Area. Strangley to some people, Soloman would nearly always end his act with his rendition of God Save The Queen. This he informe me was his mark of respect to the Queen, the country and its people who had taken him to their hearts. Soloman returned to the states after the break up of his marriage in 1980 where he continued singing in the clubs. He died in Oklahoma in June 2005 at the age of 74

Todays

People & Places How many acts today would turn down the chance of possible stardom? Not many I’m sure. But that’s exactly what comedy songwriter, singer and comedian Dom Collins did. After being given the opportunity to shine as bright as the town’s illuminations Dom appeared in Blackpool shows alongside Joe Longthorne, Frank Carson, Johnnie Casson and Mick Miller. He was offered a lucrative contract to perform mid-week at a couple of the resort’s top hotels along with a season-long weekend spot at the North Pier. After much soul searching Dom turned down the offer as it would have meant him dropping his comedy songs to perform solely as a stand up comic. He didn’t want to sacrifice the songs which mean so much to him – He didn’t want to be just another comic – albeit a funny one. Thankfully those songs are still a main part of his act. The Subject of one of his latest self penned numbers however, is not really a laughing matter. He wrote ‘Last Orders’ after seeing so many pubs close down. He hopes campaigners will pick up on the song to highlight the problem. The song blames the supermarkets cheap booze, the recession and the breweries for the state of the pub trade today. His lyrics however, do not mention the smoking ban on which Dom has his own views. The pub is a great British institution and the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) are calling on Government to bring in tax breaks to help hard-up publicans, Their figures show that there are currently twelve pubs a week closing down. Organisers behind the campaign say, that a total of 4,500 pubs have closed over the past four years with a loss of 78,000 jobs. Like ‘Cheers’ Dom believes there are opportunities for pubs to survive, but your help is needed… use your ‘local’ or lose it. Dom’s current ‘Comedy ‘n’ Covers’ shows are a happy mixture of quick fire gags, extremely funny songs and floor filling hits from the 60s up to today. Watch out for him in your area.

The millpond - back in style!! Spearheaded by a tentative owner, David Perkin, he of Manchester's Frog and Bucket, the Millpond - Beer 'n' Bourbon Bar and Grill brings a breath of fresh air to the Stalybridge nightlife. With the cheerful management team of Carl, Jess, Craig and Ashleigh, a genuine warm enthusiasm greeted everyone on its opening night. The sublime soulful tones of acclaimed jazz singer Jerome Mcmurray with his natural charm and charisma along with his friends was the perfect choice to win over the opening night crowd, Not that they needed winning over for this unique venue had gained everyone's admiration before they walked on stage. However if this caliber of entertainment should be maintained Stalybridge is in for a treat. Aimed at the over 25's with a smart casual dress code the Millpond spreads over two floors and it is hoped to open a basement bar soon. On entering on ground level a long bar serves a comfortable lounge area from where a spiral staircase ascends to the upper floor with its central bar. Both bars provide an extensive cocktail menu, and if like me you like your bourbon they have eight brands to choose from. The magnificent baby grand piano which takes the eye will have its ivory's tickled every Sunday by a guest pianist. From the end of October and the last Thursday of each month the Frog and Bucket road show comedy evening will take place. (Contact the venue for details) Should you be feeling peckish the Bar and grill serves up a menu of burgers, ribs and steaks in the ample dining area. Open seven nights with live entertainment on Fridays and Saturdays one visit to the Millpond will make you a regular.
