LifeStory: Frederick Jamieson: Whaling, the cooperage and a Ford Zephyr

Back into the podcast archives today to revisit a great episode of 'Lifestory' with Frederick Jamieson. Frederick talks about his father, Walter Jamieson who spent most of his working life at sea- the Merchant Navy, fisheries protection and on whaling ships with Salvesen. We hear tales of his Leith granny, his own childhood and working life. From training as a cooper to working as a lorry driver. Also the heady days of being a young man in the late 1950s and early 60s. Driving a black Ford Zephyr and seeing Chubby Checker at the Top Storey Club.

Hey Thelma! I'm really enjoying the Soulville Evolution of Disco show on Friday afternoons. Brill that you understand just how much music is a part of our culture, and include such programming. George Reid certainly knows his Black Music history. Great DJ find. Great variety of music rarely heard on the airwaves. Well done all.
The Weekend Starts Here ! For Show 2 of Soulville’s Disco Evolution I have used B&S issue 24 -26 as my starting point (many thanks to Peter Mattock for sending me images of issue 24). I have dug out the tunes of the day as you would have read about them in the magazines, heard them on the radio or in a club and that is how I will present the show from now on. The show will include album and singles charts from the day mixing up the classics and the not so well known. So step back in time to January – February 1970. Holland Dozier Holland had left Motown and started up Invictus. Syl Johnson, The Impressions, Nina Simone and Robert Flack more were serving up socially conscious soul. Meanwhile over in New York David Mancuso and Francis Grasso where seeding the roots of disco from a variety of sources including Soul, Funk, Gospel, Rock, African and Brazilian rhythms. Join me on Soulville’s Disco Evolution at 1.30 – 3.30pm on Thelma FM. Click the Thelma FM Logo banner at the bottom of the page www.livingmemory.org.uk , or download the simple radio app from the google playstore to listen live. The sjow will also be available on https://www.mixcloud.com/soulville/ on the download later. It will also be repeated on Thelma FM on Saturday evening. I’ll let you know when. Big love to all who have liked, posted, listened, downloaded. It’s all about the music. Peace & Love x.
Love the shows keep up the good work guys ❤
All set for my trip in the time machine on Thelma FM at 1.30 today. Looking back at the old Blues & Soul magazines 1970 was a real turning point so as good a point as any to begin the journey. Albums that have gone on to become classics from Gil, Curtis, Donny and in 71 Marvin gave us What's going on and changed the game. In the US clubs 60s Motown was giving way to psychedelic soul, funk and the emergence of African music. all that and the new shoots in Philadelphia were about to emerge with a new sound. DJ's such as Francis Grasso was experimenting with "blends" between records. I have his setlist from the Sanctuary in 71 and I will be playing some of the tunes to take you back , if you were there, or just enjoy if, like me, you were too young. Hope you can join me.
