Neil Gits A Nice Breeze

24th September 2023
Posted by Neil Matthew

I am being boring again – talking about the weather ! But it’s what us Brits do best and with the sudden soaring of temperatures recently it was hard to have a conversation with anyone and not mention the heat. The brief ‘Indian Summer’ was soon over though and whilst it had hardly turned cold, I was ready to get into ‘Autumn Mode’ as I love October & November, usually an ideal time to get out and do what I enjoy most …

My windows were soon open again though as I cooked up a particularly delicious ‘Big Boy’s Brakfast’ of sossies, bacon, mushrooms & tomatoes and the smell and smoke ensuing was best not left lingering in my open plan downstairs living room-cum-kitchen !! Once the unwanted odours had left the house, I enjoyed a lovely waft of cool clean air passing through from front to back on a mild day – best make the most of that for now, as I’m sure it won’t be long before the heating goes back on !

Of course one thing that is always ‘Cool’ is the soul music I play on my weekly show ! From January to December, Monday to Sunday, whenever you listen, whether live or catching up, top quality tunes are assured every time – take a look at the latest playlist for confirmation …
