Neil Gits Some P & Q!

19th September 2014
Posted by Neil Matthew

Yes, I have posted my blog a couple of days earlier than usual – because it is nice and peaceful at Old Git Towers this week with Nathan away on a residential course with the school and I am getting stuff done!!! It was a bit strange though going to the studios all on my own this Monday, but at least I was able to concentrate 100% on the music and bring you another super soul show, just the way you like it…

If you didn’t hear it live, of course there is a second chance to catch the hand-picked delights from the 70s 80s & beyond when the show is repeated this Saturday at 5pm. There was a little extra vinyl played this week too, so don’t pick up your radio and shake it when you hear a few pops & crackles – it is just classic old music the way it was meant to be heard! Check out the tunes & gigs below:
