Happy Saturday!

Tyler back in the chair for another 3 hours – and goodness me, did it fly by! Speaking of flying by… how is it the 14th of January already?! Anyway, let’s not dwell on it – but I’m just saying – you can still get Christmas wrapping paper on sale at The Eastgate… just in case you’re looking to be more prepared this year! Anyway, here’s what I mentioned on the show this week:

Here are the strange stories I mentioned this week:
