Neil Gits Back To Business

11th January 2016
Posted by Neil Matthew

I am really looking forward to getting back in the hot seat for this evening’s show – the first “regular” one since Xmas after the two specials over the festive period and a short-notice night off last week. Sadly, no less than four of the tracks I have chosen will be played in tribute to artists who have passed away in the last three weeks, but unfortunately it’s a situation that is becoming all too common as more and more of the great names in soul music move beyond their pension age …

The usual features will mostly be back this week, including “The Tasty 12” , “The Old Gits Jazzy Bit” & “The Vinyl Reminder” plus there’s a new featured artist for the month of January with some particularly cool cuts lined up all taken from a cult LP of the 80s. Throw in outstanding requests from Ann, Lorna & Samantha and you have a pretty decent looking radio show ready to hit your speakers between 7 & 9pm tonight !

Tune in either online here at the website or on 97.8FM in and around the Basildon area – and listen out for details of some brand new soul events if you are ready to get out and about after recovering from the party season ! A revised “Recommended Old Gits Nights Out” list will be posted up before the weekend …
