Me to Jaysay, used to go in at lunch times, when I was a fulltime student at Blackburn Tech, or we used to go to the Mecca for the lunchtime sessions, the DJ played all the latest in soul. It went down well with the pies.

Yup Alan tried that as well, also Belper Street Baths in Summer as well. We started the twilight shift whilst I was at Tech, that was right through until 7pm. so you didn't need to come back for a night class, we used to do the Mecca at lunch and the Vulcan at tea
