Neil Gits A New Toy To Play With !

3rd July 2021
Posted by Neil Matthew

I was asked to get in a little earlier last Monday to familiarize myself with the new mixer which had been installed in Studio 1 in the seven days since my previous live show. Being a “DJ” of over 40 years experience, the thought of having a slightly different set of faders to push and knobs to twiddle was hardly terrifying, but it did look very shiny and modern. However, looking around I started to notice a few more changes : a new keyboard for the PC, brand new CD players – identical to the old ones (which I love !) but in a much more practical place on the desk – and fabulous new speakers and headphones which both sounded amazing ! What a lovely surprise !

Of course, listening on the radio, I doubt you would have noticed any change at all, though I’d like to think my new equipment makes me sound even more smooth and slick than usual (!) so why not tune in to the ‘Repeat Play’ this Saturday at 5pm or use the “Listen Again” section on here to see what you think. At the end of the day, my show is all about the music, whatever techy stuff we do in the studio, so here are the latest tracks played ….
