ROCKIN’ ALL OVER THE TOON – Alikivi blog makes the news


On the blog in February, Roksnaps featured photos of bands playing live in Newcastle over 30 years ago.

The rare pics were by music fans Ian Coult, Tony Maddison and John Edward Spence – their memories of gigs from the 70’s and early 80’s. Photo’s which capture the atmosphere and excitement at Newcastle Mayfair and City Hall.

On Friday May 18th journalist Dave Morton wrote an article and featured the photos in The Chronicle newspaper and on its website.

The blog is coming up to 30,000 views, so a great way to mark that milestone is with a double page in the local newspaper.
