Neil Gits Through Xmas !

26th December 2012
Posted by Neil Matthew

Well, I hope you had a nice Xmas – mine was pants, but there you go ! I am almost hoping that you DIDN’T get to hear any of my Xmas Eve Special “Dead Good Soul Show” as it would probably mean you were stuck indoors bored listening onlne at your PC or worse still, stuck in traffic trying to get somewhere better, tuned in on 97.8FM … but this Saturday you are probably allowed some quiet chill out time at home, so do try and catch the repeat play at 5pm. You will hear around 25 of the greatest names in soul music performing some of the brilliant music they left behind for us to enjoy before leaving us for pastures new…
