Oh heyyy!

Tyler back with you on Gateway, after a couple of weeks off.

My goodness, this radio stuff is fun to do after a two week break. To top it all off – no Producer Jack this week! But, y’know what?… it’s great being back.

So, onto this week’s content:

In your weird news/content:

On this day in music:

  • 1972, Elton John started a five week run at No.1 on the US album chart with ‘Honky Chateau’, his first US chart topper
  • 1989, Simply Red scored their second US No.1 single with ‘If You Don’t Know Me By Now’
  • 2002, Sir Paul McCartney was named the highest-earning music star of the year so far after selling tickets worth £33.9m during his recent US tour

In your celeb birthdays, we have:

  • Elyar Fox, 22
  • Olly Alexander, 27
  • Forest Whitaker, 56

For your trip back in time:

One of the best-selling hits of 1994; Baby D – Let Me Be Your Fantasy was this week’s Back in Time on Gateway.

That’s your lot from me this week. I’ll be back in your ears next Saturday. Until then – have a brilliant week!
