Neil Gits Blinded By The Light

17th March 2022
Posted by Neil Matthew

As someone who is often on the road early evening / late afternoon it is with much relief that I am able to do most of my driving in some sort of daylight now and of course it gets even better soon when the clocks go forward again ! However, as at the end of Autumn, the beginning of Spring sees some very low sunsets and my route to Gateway now takes me head first into the Sun straight ahead, a situation that not even the most skilled positioning of the car visor can prevent …

Monday was definitely one of those days and maybe the effect it had on me explains a rather ham-fisted show this week, where my tongue was continually tied and my hands were all fingers & thumbs trying to operate the studio which just DID NOT want to be my friend for once ! Of course the music that made it on to the airwaves was top notch as you can see from the playlist posted below … and as you can hear on the ‘Repeat Play’ this Saturday late afternoon / early evening at 5pm. Just make sure you close the curtains first if your house faces west !!
