Neil Gits Back Live Again !

21st January 2017
Posted by Neil Matthew

It may be 21st January today, but unbelievably, this week saw me return to the studio for the first time this year, after my longest break from doing my show ever due to various circumstances. I did feel a little bit rusty (even after 38 years of radio experience !) but it was great to get back in the old routine again and share my world of soul, jazz, funk & disco with the listening public …

Tune in at 5pm today (Saturday) for a second chance to hear the show – just ignore all the bits in between the music where I moan about what a rotten start I’ve had to 2017 and enjoy some top cuts from the 70s 80s & 90s for two hours !
