Hi Dave Bryant

Your memory of the Enterprise residents is spot on for the earliest years, later after Don and Maureen Wallis moved away Marian McKenzie (mentioned elsewhere is the thread) became a resident and then she and Don B were joined by Clive Woolf (Terry Gould was still involved). I'd sung a few years earlier with Clive (resident at the Cellar C#H) and when he left the Enterprise I became a resident, probably '72 - '75 singing mainly with Don B although we all did solos as well. Don and I tended to share the MC'ing and Don and I were also resident at the Cellar. Good days, Don and I revived a couple of songs at the Cellar Upstairs birthday celebrations a couple of years back after about 25 years since we'd sung together. The only place I think your memory has failed is that Sheila Finn did not collect the money at the time you're recalling, but probaby after all the originals had gone an Mike Butcher continued the club but it was really a different club post 1977'ish I guess.
