Neil Gits To Choose Selects

12th February 2022
Posted by Neil Matthew

Apart from a few minor tweaks to how I used to do things “before”, I am now fully back in the old routine and rotating my fast food treats on the way to the studio each week. Usually I will stop off at either Burger King, KFC, Subway or McDonalds before my show, though in the nicer weather I often pack a little home made lunch or grab a Tesco Meal Deal and park up in the sunshine / shade somewhere – you can’t be a Superstar Soul Radio DJ on an empty stomach !!

I remember what seems not so many years ago, when my son used to tag along to the studio with me after school & visiting my mum in her care home, we would rotate chain restaurants for a meal before coming in, normally Harvester, Frankie & Bennys, Toby Carvery, Nandos or maybe one of the better pubs that did good deals – how I miss the Fayre & Square brand, along with their huge cheap yummy desserts !! Now Nathan actually works at a local McDonalds, but he has barred me from going in on one of his shifts (!) so I hadn’t had the chance to get back to a mini Monday feast in there so far, although I had wolfed down several early morning Double Sausage Egg McMuffins on my various road trips last year ! On one trip out in the car recently he introduced me to Chicken Selects – OMG they are good … and the BBQ sauce they come with is to die for !!

So last Monday, with Son No:1 safely at home studying for his college course, Maccie Ds it was to re-acquaint myself with the Selects (plus large fries plus a triple chocolate cookie!) and that really did the trick inspiring what I felt was a particularly good show. Hear it again (or for the first time) today at 5pm when the ‘Repeat Play’ is aired or ‘Listen Again’ any time in the next couple of weeks, the tracks played are listed below. Oh …. and by the way, THOUSANDS of other great places to eat are also available – get out there and enjoy them again !! 🙂
