Good grief ! Where did that year go ? Suddenly I found myself presenting my last “normal” show of 2015 – and it wasn’t that normal either, with quite a few surprise selections that I hope you enjoyed, or will enjoy if you tune in to the repeat play today (Saturday) at 5pm. I included two Xmas songs, some 80s New Jack Swing, a recent release by a 70s & 80s funk legend, the original version of an RnB classic, my shortest ever Tasty 12″ with a nice jazzy kick on the end, six cuts off vinyl and a little Xmas present from Luther at the end as a thank you for listening each week !
Take a look at the full playlist below to see if anything takes your fancy and have a listen ! Next week I will be revisiting some of the fabulous old vinyl singles and album cuts I re-discovered over the last year on “The Old Gits Best Bits” , then on Monday 28th December it’s another special show “The New Gits Soul Show” with two hours of some of the fantastic new soul & jazz-funk that has come my way in 2015 – it has been an ncredible year for fresh quality music as you will hear ! Both shows will be live as usual, so i look forward to plenty of comments and feedback via email, text and good old Facebook at “The Old Gits Soul Show” page.
Merry Xmas to every lovely one of you who has listened in 2015 !
