Mister Nice – The DJ that is so succulent, sweet, lovely & nice we just had to have him back!

Bert’s Pick of the Pops – We asked the custodial staff at Rumpus if anyone could DJ and to our surprise Bert the Caretaker said he and his Missus were mobile DJs in the 70’s. So they’ve dragged his gear out of the attic to play the Pick of the Pops from the 60’s and 70’s. Let’s just hope he forgot to pack the Disco.
