I worked there in the 70's for John Quigley and a manager called Duncan.
The DJ was a girl called Julie I think and there was nice photographer who took pics of the punters. I remember a steward called Jim who was a martial arts guy from Bellahoustan and wee Jet who wore all the silver gear. I met him last year in Union Street and he looked the same.
Julie was the girlfriend of Max Langdon who with Frank Lynch were directors of Unicorn Leisure, the company who owned the WE. Julie was a lovely girl and I worked with her during my time there. She drove a Morgan sports car which I well remember as I drove a Triumph TR6 then. John Quigley went on to manage the Savoy Centre. I only met John once after leaving the WE when he and Max popped into my brothers hotel in Glassford Street for a drink and I happened to be doing the bar at the time.
PS was the manager you refer to not Graeme, he and his girlfriend worked there for a long time and looked after the main club area whilst John Quigley always did the door with a steward called Billy Marshall
