,99 Club - a Memory of West Bridgford.

The 99 club was in the hotel, it was great in the 1970's. I worked in the hotel and met some fab people; seems like only yesterday. All the Forest players use to come in the 99 club from the 70's. Anyone remember the DJs Derek, Tex, Dave and Brian the manager. It was very popular back then, packed every night. When I worked in the hotel I met the Hollies and Tommy Cooper. Many footballers used to stay there. Very happy memories, many nights there in the 99,,also Ace taxis and the Golden Curry on Arkwrght Street. Happy days. My name was Katie.

Hi Katie; I've just come across this site looking for some history on the Bridgford.
I was/am the DJ Dave you mentioned in your post. I used to work with Tex and on my own and used the name Dave Anthony.
I saw my 18th birthday in working in the 99 and consequently lost the next 3 days!
I went on to DJ at the Mecca Palais de Dance in Nottingham in the Bali Hai disco with the revolving dance floor!
Good to know someone remembers those times..
