Coffee & Tea – 25th February

25th February 2017

Happy Saturday!

Tyler back in the studio this week with another 3 hours that have just… vanished, frankly. Anyhow, hope you’ve had a good week thus far; here’s a run down of what I mentioned on the show this week:

Here are the strange stories I mentioned this week:

On this day in music:

  • 1956, Elvis Presley had his first national hit when ‘I Forgot To Remember To Forget’ went to No.1 on the Billboard Country & Western chart
  • 1995, Madonna started a seven week run at No.1 on the US singles chart with ‘Take A Bow’
  • 2004, The Rolling Stones topped a US Rich List of music’s biggest money makers

In your celeb birthdays, we have:

  • Ricky Reacts, 17
  • Ed Balls, 50
  • Lee Evans, 53

For your trip back in time:

As Chris Martin performed such a touching tribute to George Michael this week on The Brits – I thought I’d play a Wham! track myself. This week I played Wham – Young Guns (Go For It!), and you can see the video below.

Rightio! You’re up to date for this week. I’ll be back in your ears next Saturday from 12 – speak to you then!
