Posted by Tyler

Another 3 hours have flashed before my eyes!

Saturdays 12-3 = Tyler Pittaway back in your ears on Gateway, with more:

  • Local events in Kelly’s Diary
  • Sports with Producer Jack and Richard Becker
  • A trip back in time
  • Celeb birthdays
  • Musical on this day
  • Brilliant music
  • Cookies… okay, we don’t actually have cookies 🙁

Well, we do have cookies, but they’re in the cabinet by reception. If anyone asks, I didn’t tell you that.

This week on the show, it’s been World Maths Day and I’ve been practising the ‘Bus Stop Method’ in the studio with Producer Jack – which has proven I really need to resit my GCSE maths, but alas, I digress.

Here are the strange stories I mentioned this week:

On this day in music:

  • 1965, Jimi Hendrix signed his first recording contract in the UK, where he would received $1 and a 1% Royalty on all of his recordings
  • 1966, The Four Tops started a two week run at No.1 on the US singles chart with ‘Reach Out And I’ll Be There’
  • 1979, ABBA played their first concert in North America when they appeared in Vancouver, Canada

In your celeb birthdays, we have:

For your trip back in time:

We don’t mess about here… I played the excellent Men At Work – Overkill from 1983. For some bizarre reason that song only charted at 21 in the UK.  Check out the video below:

They’re one of the most underrated bands of the 80s, and they can thank me for the royalties later!

Tonight, Cineworld Basildon are showing:

  • Inferno, starring Tom Hanks (12A)
  • The Girl On The Train, starring Emily Blunt (15)
  • Bridget Jones’s Baby, starring Renee Zelleweger (15)
  • Deepwater Horizon, starring Mark Wahlberg (12A)

And, tonight on the telly-box:

  • Strictly Come Dancing on BBC1 at 6:30pm
  • The X Factor on ITV1 at 8pm
  • 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown on Channel4 at 9pm
  • Grown Ups (2010) on 5STAR at 10pm

I have a week off next week, but be sure to tune in on Saturday afternoon 12-3 for your Saturday afternoon soundtrack on Gateway.

I’ll be back with you on the 29th October, and as it’s the show before Halloween – there may be some scary surprises in store 😉
