Does anyone remember "EXPLOSION", a night club down town Manchester. 1971-1972?

I remember the disc-jocky was a afro-american.. great guy, great accent, he also had a radio program. I remember some good looking guys. Ozzy was one, a great dancer.

Explosion was a great club on High Street. It was one of Manchester's first Discoteque style venues, different from the likes of Rowntrees and Top of the Town which had gone before.

I can still remember my girlfriend, Janet (now my wife) and her friend Janice on the small stage area, both in tiny hotpants, dancing away to the music.

The building disappeared years ago with the demolition for the Arndale Centre.
