I remember the Uplands in The 70's. Yes, owned by Johnny Minns, (most decorated Britsh Soldier in WWII) who didn't give a hoot about anything and carried a sword stick at all times. The DJ at that time was his nephew, Bobby. Manager was Chris Somethingorother, buggered off to Australia years ago. There was another John FRYARS but he came along a little later, I think. Did Jimmy Smith marry one of the Ryan sisters? Jackie maybe?

Whatever happened to Pete Bashford, anyone know? I know he was the regular DJ in the Palmie as well a little later too but he just seemed to have disappeared overnight about 20 years ago and not seen him since.

I used to work in the Uplands Tavern as a barman. Remember John the Potman very well - decent. Like.:

Chris Smith was his name . Long hair - pally with Pete Bashford ( as was I at the time). I worked in there from 1973-1976 before going off to university. ( actually lived upstairs in the pub). Used to work behind the bar and also did the disco 2 times a week ( rock and roll and 60's night). Remember the Sullivans and Terry Naylor .Also very fond memories of an excellent and honest bar staff to work with - eg Dave Bulloch, Dave West, Micky Brooks, Barbara Nicholson etc.Good times and fond memories.

Hi, I'm Chris Smith and I used to be the manager of The Uplands circa '73-'76.
I did go to Australia and have recently returned and now living in Windsor. The hair in long... gone! But I'm still standing and would love to hear from anyone who was around at that time. Perhaps even meet up in the Actress for a beer.

Hi Sue!
I'm wondering which Sue that might be?
Yours has been the only response so far, must say I'm a bit disappointed, but then it has been a long time.

Hi Jockyboy, I hope that you are well.
Not sure that I ever had long hair but it was a thrill to find your message. I was looking for Pete Bashford, it sounds like he's not in a good place but would still like to get in touch. I'm also keen to catch up with anyone from that era, one of my favourite times
I was listening to Huey on radio 6 and he played a track from Abandoned Luncheonette. One of my all time favourites and if memory serves me well it was you that introduced me to the album. I also remember you telling me that if I didn't go to Aus I would regret it. Can't know for sure if that would have been true but I've done it, I'm back, and I have no regrets.
I would like to catch up if you're interested

Sorry but I've only been here nearly twenty years. After your time. I knew the Uplands, though smiling smiley
