I never went to Bailey's - I probably wasn't born. But I do have a tenuous story about the DJ Ray Stuart mentioned in that flyer. There was a sports reporter at Radio Hallam in the 70s and a lady I worked with encountered him in the Blue Ball in town, and he invited her to a party at Ray Stuart's house which I am just down the road from as I write this. There turned out to be no party, and indeed nobody in the house at all, he got her drunk and wheedled her into bed. The bounder!

Hello folks,

My latest podcast is about covers bands and Bee Gees fans at Baileys, in the summer of 1978. Link here - http://smarturl.it/MyLifeInTheMosh

Enjoy.

I worked at Bailey's in the Cabaret Room in 1973.   Everyone sat at tables and was quite small & waitresses took drinks to the tables.  Top acts at the time appeared there, Lou Christie, Gerry Marsden, Mud, Showaddywaddy, Dave Berry, Julie Felix & Peter Wyngarde I recall to name a few whilst I was there.  Very much of its' time.

One of my first jobs on joining the Morning Telegraph in January 1973 was to go to Bailey's and produce a feature on that week's act, the touring show of the TV favourite, The Comedians.  Of course, Bailey's, I was to learn, was a favourite watering hole of the newsroom at the Telegraph since most people didn't finish work until midnight or later. As a result in the nine months I worked at Kemsley House I got to see many of the big names - and free of charge!   This cutting is one of many from my files from that time.

This started life as The Cavendish Club. An upmarket nightery which had many famous names booked in Cabaret. Opened in the late 1960’s it was THE place to go back then. Most Sunday nights would find us there and there were always local celebrities United and Wednesday players,etc. Happy days!
