Hi Charlie,
The default mode of selection is to replace the previous selection  
with the new one, but you can use the additive mode of selection  

Change the selection mode to "append" (in the main menu:
Select... Selection Mode... append).

Then in the Sequence panel, each segment you drag out adds to the
existing selection, so eventually you can have multiple segments
selected.  The highlighting in sequence blinks off while you are
dragging a new segment, but when you let up, they will all be selected.

You probably want to turn the selection mode back to the default
"replace" afterward to avoid confusion.

I hope this is what you had in mind - Best,
