Comment: Richard Scanes has passed away. 'Tricky Dicky' was a great servant to soul and dance music for decades, as both a DJ and a proprietor. His Trax Records shop in Greek Street was an invaluable barometer of public acceptance for me in the days when I worked in dance promotion. I actually knew TD from the time when I used to buy secondhand records from his lists in the late 1960s, and he was as passionate about a good new tune in the early 1990s as he was when he used to put those paper lists together 25 years earlier.
