This time last year my last show of 2012 was a pre-recorded one due to New Year’s Eve falling on a Monday. Although this time I will be LIVE in the studio for my Gateway “farewell to 2013”, I thought I’d do the same thing as I did back then and put together an “Old Gits Best Bits” show.
I’ll be looking back through my last 52 playlists and picking out around 20 tunes that really stood out as being most enjoyable to re-discover, so get ready to savour two hours of non-stop cherished vinyl (OK … and CD!) Soul Soothers, Mellow Moments, Short Trousered Soul Tracks, Old Gits Jazzy Bits, Tasty 12s and several other tracks that I hope made you say “Yes! Loved that!” over the last year.
As ever the show goes out between 7pm & 9pm, but don’t forget there’s always a repeat play on Saturday at 5pm – if you read this in time here are the tunes I will be playing this evening !
Fatback Band – Do The Spanish Hustle
O’Jays – This Time Baby –
Bobby Womack – I Can Understand It
Terumasa Hino – Send Me Your Feelings Maze – The Morning After
Wooten Brothers – Tell Me
John Davis & The Monster Orchestra – Ain’t That Enough For You
Patrick Hernandez – Born To Be Alive
Howard Johnson – So Fine
Carrie Lucas – Show Me Where You’re Coming From Kurtis Blow – Xmas Rapping James Brown – The Boss Rufus & Chaka Khan – Any Love (Womack Rework) Sister Sledge – Mama Never Told Me Light Of The World – Blue Sky Day Anita Baker – No More Tears Jean Carn – We’ve Got Some Catching Up To Do Jesse Gomez – Baby I’m Coming At You Bobby Brown – My Prerogative

The “Recommended Old Gits Nights Out” lists will return in early January, once we’ve all got over the holidays and started planning stuff – enjoy the rest of your break and thanks for listening to “The Old Gits Soul Show” in 2013 !
Oh yes — a very Happy New Year
