Neil Gits Digging !

17th May 2020
Posted by Neil Matthew

I’ve been “finally getting round” to doing a few long overdue jobs in the “Old Gits Office” in recent weeks and whilst in that mood, I spent some time rummaging around for groovy tunes from the 70s & 80s that I’d never ever played before on my soul show over the last ten years … and that wasn’t easy !!

I have small piles of paper lists where I have scribbled down good ideas and painstakingly dug out the vinyl copies or pulled the CD off the shelf where I once re-discovered them – and whilst doing that inevitably found a few more gems too !! I have also been making an effort to find fresh sources of quality soul, jazz-funk and disco to listen to, especially ones where there are no patronizing inane DJs, annoying adverts, depressing news updates or other irritating interruptions, just music, music, music … and found some cracking solutions to ‘the problem’ ! And that meant another expedition into the record library to see if some of the tracks I heard were sitting in there on undisturbed forgotten vinyl or if I was going to have to get my technological head on and attempt to download one or two of the better ones.

You can hear some of the results of my labours this week on the show and indeed throughout the summer as we head towards Gateway’s 10th Birthday celebrations. Tune in to the new live show this Monday at 7pm for two hours of the good stuff or listen online here via the website, either on “L:isten Live” or “Listen Again”.
