Memo
I am always being asked where did the name Bakerloo Junction originate. It came from a map of the London underground. Don't try and find the location as it doesn't exist. There is a Bakerloo Line but no junction. For the past 35 years people have been trying to find Bakerloo Junction. There was a good reason for the name when I formed the group back in 1974. I wanted to perform on the local cabaret scene. Cabaret Clubs would have been very reluctant to book a folk duo. The name Bakerloo Junction put them off the scent. It only took one performance in a club to convince them that we were an acceptable cabaret act. A folk duo arriving dressed in velvet jackets with bow ties and black patent shoes was most unusual and very impressive. In 1974 I compared a summer season in the Slieve Donard Hotel, Newcastle. I was convinced that a folk duo would be successful on the cabaret circuit. The second member of the act was Michael Keery. Mike was a lovely singer and a good guitarist and banjo player. I can remember the Saturday afternoon in Lisburn when my wife Pat escorted us around various shops looking for our new outfits. Mike thought we were mad. I have many happy memories of the numerous shows I did with Michael. Our main agent was Billy McCullough (Cuckles). His first booking for us was the Abercorn Club in Belfast - WHOW!! Bakerloo hits the big time. Mr 10% Billy was a real character. It was a pleasure to pay him his money just for the fun. We performed on the cabaret circuit until most of the social clubs disappeared due to firms closing down. By this time a number of other contacts had been established and we enjoyed the very best in local venues. Our next break was being introduced to Emerald Records. We were invited to the recording studio where Mervyn Solomon and George Doherty (studio manager) listened to us singing a few songs. They were impressed - I should think so. The next thing we knew we were offered a recording contract. Here we go! Here we go!

Memo
The company is entirely committed to working with traditional pipe organs covering all aspects of design, consultancy, manufacturing, restoration, tuning and servicing. Whilst we prefer the challenge of new mechanical action projects, the nature of our local market demands a readiness to adapt expertise to a wide range of work. We regard the slider soundboard as an essential prerequisite to good design discipline, tone production and mechanical reliability and have successfully employed either mechanical, electric or electropneumatic key actions as appropriate to each individual situation. The firm's tonal concept remains firmly grounded in classical principles of good chorus structure. After a period of experimentation with 'open foot voicing' and 'no nicking' in the 1970's, in common with many firms influenced by the organ reform movement, and with consideration of musical requirements of both the repertoire and liturgical accompaniment, our preference now is for a wide ranging and adaptable instrument unconstrained by slavish adherence to past practices. In the 36 years since its establishment the firm has undertaken some 200 contracts for the refurbishment of existing instruments, has designed and built 38 new organs (7 in Scotland and 1 in England) and currently tunes and maintains over 300 on an annual basis.
