Hi, only in town until Sunday, just wanted to say how much I've enjoyed the shows from all of the presenters.
it's a shame I was unable to pop over to see you, as I'm considering buying a villa here in Mazarron. Love Carl

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Carl Edwardes, born 1947, commenced working as a Disc Jockey in 1964, where he and three other friends started a sound system called The TM Sound, this included Ronnie Payne, and David Keeble. The equipment used was very basic. The home record players were stripped of their turntables and linked to a small valve amplifier (50 watts). Playing at mostly YMCA and other Youth Clubs in the London area.
In 1967, Carl and David Keeble broke away and started their own sound system. Carl became the Mc and David concentrated on the choice of the records to play, and mixing the discs, whilst Carl interacted with the audiences.During the 1967 Summer of Love, they played at the Ship Hotel, in New Romney, replacing a local lad that put money into a Juke Box. Their reputation of playing new Imported records from America made the venue the place to go!. A frequent visitor to the venue was Jimmy Hendrix, whom along with other band members stayed at a small house at Greatstone. Carl became very friendly with Jimmy, and he was to go on and appear with Hendrix at a number of Venues in the Uk. Including the Bromel Club, The California Ballroom and Sgt Peppers in Majorca. Carl also visited America and made the trip to Woodstock, where he stood backstage when Hendrix made his unannouched appearance at the show.
Carl broke away on his own in 1968 and built a 5000 watt public address system that was most popular with the larger venues, American Airforce Bases and the Universities. Appearing with hundreds of established artistes, Bands and small groups. Using the following amplification, Vox, Vamp and WEM.
