Another show, and another week has flown by; and just in case you missed the show this week – I’ve summarised all the key points in a nice little post below.
Here are the strange stories I mentioned this week:
- Some ‘possessed’ salad cream across the pond
- If you’re named Derek or Rodney (as in the classic TV comedy duo) – there’s a job waiting for you in Scunthorpe
- The best place to sit on a plane if you hate turbulence
- The latest ‘UFO crash site’ in Myanmar
On this day in music:
- 1962, The Beatles appeared at the Star Club, Hamburg, Germany, sharing the bill with Little Richard
- 1983, Lionel Richie started a four week run at No.1 on the US singles chart with ‘All Night Long’
- 1997, The Spice Girls were at No.1 on the UK album chart with their second album ‘Spiceworld’
In your celeb birthdays, we have:
- Anne Hathaway, 34
- Ryan Gosling, 36
- Neil Young, 71
For your trip back in time:
How could we resist… I had to play an ABBA track at some point! Today’s trip back in time was ABBA – Mamma Mia, and you can see the video below:
Between 1975 and 1977 the song hit number one in the UK singles chart – and quite rightly so – it’s one of those all-time great tracks.
Right, you’re up to date. I’m back on Gateway next weekend during the Gateway 97.8 open day where you can pop in and see the show live on air from the studio.
Speak to you next week! 🙂
