    First post welcome and I hope you are correct.

    If this is some scam to generate more interest, shame on you if not well done.

    Lots of staffys up there dog-wise, an amazing array of tattooed people, maybe a parade could be organised for next year? Bands were ok but main problem with all bands I saw was that they had one good idea and stuck to it rigidly, not a lot of variety but a nice afternoon in the sun all the same. The Slaters Queen Bee from Real Ale bar was decent enough also. Ahem.

    Have looked and not found...

    Didn't a Stafford FM or likewise register not too distant past?

    I know they haven't said anything, on account of waiting for them to do so and waiting in vain.

    We did have this;

    followed by all sorts of suspicious minds? (Elvis has definitely left the building - and this one's better anyway)

    The above videos are down-down-diggety-down-da-down are they not? A professionalism brought to the scene that can only be appreciated.

    It grieves me that a Stafford Radio Station would not wish to be affiliated with a Stafford Forum - and what is worse - it grieves me that this should be from past experience.

    Live@ the Castle is a perfect example of where the two enterprises meet - quite apart from the Staffie Show, it pulls a big, big crowd (big enough this year to say the biggest?), proof positive that the folk of Stafford will get off their arses and get behind a big community venture - the same people would get behind a decent community radio station i'm sure.

    Just remember that, from what i could see at least, many-many-many people there were kinda young-young-young - "Everybody likes the Eagles, right?" - wrong.

    Could take a while for the cannabis smoke to waft away from the castle.

    I'm not on any of them either, thankfully!

    There wasn't anywhere near as much ghetto spinach smoke in the air as last year, but then we were sat near to the beefy delights of the BBQ for quite some time. And the toilets.

    We were sat round there and the smell wasn't very noticeable but it was if you walked about a bit. Did you see the toilet get knocked over?
