Neil Gits On With It

Neil MatthewCool SoulLeave a Comment

Oh boy ! That was a stinker ! Three days of feeling like death warmed up, then thankfully back to near normality as the dreaded “man-cold” slowly wore off. Unfortunately, one of those three days was Monday, but not wanting to let my listener down (and knowing that I was unlikely see anyone else for any more than a passing moment whilst at the station!) I soldiered on and the show went ahead. In actual fact, it was quite a good one and I am probably going to listen to the first part myself when it is repeated at 5pm this Saturday – if only to see just HOW nasal I sounded !!

As always, it’s all about the tunes and there’s a bit more of them and a bit less of me understandably this week, so take a peek at the playlist below, then if that tickles your fancy, click “Listen Live” above and enjoy two hours of soul, jazz-funk and disco niceness from the 70s 80s and beyond.

*Monday 19th December will be the annual “Old Gits Best Bits” edition, with a mixture of the year’s hottest new soul music and the best “re-discoveries” from my old vinyl collection side by side !*

(Normal show again this Monday 12th ….)
