Martin Fuggles was the DJ at the Ricky-Tick, Windsor from 1965 to 1967. He was persuaded to come out of retirement after over 40 years and got back behind the turntables to play a set at Club Rude! in Reading on 17 February 2011. He played the same vinyl that he used to play on the golden piano all those years ago.
Having got a taste for it again, he’s been keen to share those sounds with everyone who remembers the mod sounds of the 60s or is just inquisitive about what it was like back then by playing a Ricky-Tick set or two at various events but, due to Covid-19, he has had to cancel all his outings. He is still making plans for the Ricky-Tick stage at the Retro Festival at Newbury Showground on August 11/12/13 2021. More info here
He also has a monthly Ricky-Tick Record Show on Target Radio Online on Saturdays at 9.00pm and Thursdays at 6.00pm. (Please note it sometimes starts a couple of minutes late so please be patient!) Previous shows are stored on Mixcloud – please follow the links below.
These programmes featured records bought that month in 1963 to 1967 and some of the artistes appearing that month. (More artistes are featured in the 2019 programmes.)
