Neil Gits Further Behind!

Oh dear. The intention for this week was to have a right good catch up with all those little jobs that have been put to one side recently, but as the weekend begins that pile of papers and post-it notes is even BIGGER! :-(

So let s not waste any more time and get right down to business the music on this week s show! Some highlights to listen out for on this evening s repeat play at 5pm include the original 70s disco version of a huge hit for a British popster in 2001, a full extended version that s not often played of a classic funky pop n party hit, a 60s rock n roll standard given a cool 80s feel and my Not So Old Git Bit which is one of my most recent tunes played on the show, coming from just 2008!

Check the playlist below and see if you can spot which ones I m talking about! ;-)
