Morning (or should I say evening) to you all. Hope you are all keeping well. Just a quick heads up here about a talk I'll be giving at Coventry Central Library on Jan. 26th, 2-4pm. It's about my recent Dirty Stop Outs Guide to 1970s Cov and I plan on including plenty of time for memories and stories from the audience. All welcome! Best wishes for the festive period. PS I have image of the poster from the library but still haven't figured out how to upload images....

Hi NeilsYard, seems my previous response didn't show up. The book should still be in HMV, I was told there were copies there. Hope you can get hold of it. Waterstones should have more copies soon but I guess after Xmas now. Or you can get it online from ACM Retro, the company who brought the book out or through Amazon. Hope that helps! All the best and have a lovely festive season!

Hi there Forum members! Thought I'd let you know that I'm now researching for and writing the follow up to 1970s DSOuts Guide to Cov - The 1980s! Any memories, stories, anecdotes, pictures/images for 1980s of pubs, nightclubs, cafes, restaurants, bands, shops etc. Please do get in touch! Would love to hear from you. People seem to be liking my 1970s book and I want to do a great job with the next one. All the best, Ruth

Hi Ruth - I should be able to assist with that one - I contributed to a lot of the Friday/Saturday night city central local economy during the mid-80's! Big grin Cheers There's a couple of threads already which may be useful - Mr George / Park Lane / Mr G's Club and City centre pub and club crawl I've some photos somewhere I'll try to dig out of me in a not so glamorous city centre state!

The Telegraph got there in the end! They've had various problems but better late than never with the article.

Hi there! Hope people are getting ready for the Spring, keep being told it is coming! What is coming soon is an event at the former Cov Evening Telegraph Building in Corporation St, April 7th, 1-5pm. It's an informal gathering if you like of anyone who was a 'dirty stop out' in the 1970s or 80s or is just interested in coming along. Well worth a visit to the space while it's still open to the public! There is URBAN cafe selling refeshments and food, I'll be there with my 1970s book ready to chat to people about it and also just to chat in a relaxing atmosphere! Maybe you're interested in the book I'm writing now, about the 80s and would like to share some memories of that period or maybe you're just a 70s dirty stop out? There will also be free tours of the building and low key 70s/80s music playing. Just come along even if to say hello! I'd love to see you as would Clare, who runs the CET space. All the best Ruth

Sorry for delay in saying a big thanks to you Dirty Stop Out Supporters! I'm nearing the end of writing the next one on the 1980s. There is still time for you to get any memories, plus pics, over to me about the nightlife, and daylife, of our fair city in the 80s. Tiffanys, Cov Apollo Theatre, Busters, Dog and Trumpet, Shambles Arcade, the market, Owens, General Wolfe, Warwick and Cov Uni Student Unions, Brandon speedway, the fair, the carnival - loads of places and things going on. Look forward to hearing! Have a lovely day, don't get wet Ruth Wave

Hi Ruth - whilst being completely hopeless at tracking down my 80's photos from my attic stash of Truprint imagery and such kind - someone's just kindly stuck this on Facebook - yes that's me in the centre with arms folded - IIRC this was actually at the Allesley Hotel for a friend's wedding but kind of shows the cutting edge of fashion of the era - namely white / Antony Price'esque wannabe slacks / stripes and sunglasses! Needless to say there are some other hair-dyed / eye-linered polaroids in a New Romantic type pose but these will be banned forever! Edited by member, 12th May 2018 9:13 pm

Thanks so much NeilsYard! Great pic, love the clothes and the pose. Sorry for delay in responding. Hoping for Sept. publication of the 1980s book but might be able to get this pic in still if you don't mind? Let me know, drop me a line. Once I have publication date then I'll be planning some book signing events plus a launch somewhere appropriate! Watch this space. Speak soon. Thumbs up
