Neil Gits Festive … NOT !!!

24th December 2011
Posted by Neil Matthew

A very quick blog this week, just to remind you there’s a second chance to hear the pre-Xmas show at 5pm today, which although I haven’t felt less-Christmassy in years, does include a couple of festive offerings – tune in on 97.8FM in the Basildon area if you’re on your way to a Xmas Eve Party !!

My next two shows are specials – “Soul Superstars”, the first being LIVE on Boxing Day between 5pm & 7pm featuring around 25 of the finest male singers of the 70s & 80s with a politically correct follow up show on Bank Holiday Monday 2nd January paying homage to 25 of the great Soul Divas, which may or may not be pre-recorded. Either way tune in and enjoy and leave some feedback on Facebook if you are already a friend of “The Old Gits Soul Show”. (See the website schedule for repeat times…)

Last but not least, a big THANK YOU for everyone who’s tuned in over the last twelve months and contributed requests, compliments or just playful banter – all welcome ! If you are looking forward to this festive weekend … MERRY XMAS !!!
