Coffee & Tea – 29th October

29th October 2016

Happy Saturday!

My thanks to Aris for covering for me last week. I had the pleasure of attending The Radio Hub’s Workshop hosted in Kent by SFM. We learned a lot about the rules of broadcasting – and I discovered over 100 new forbidden words and phrases that I never knew existed! We actually have them on a convenient print out available in the Gateway studios now…

Saturday the 29th of October turns out to be Internet Day and Cat Day; both of which are just excellent.

Anyway, what happened this week on the show? It’s all below:

In your local events guide:

  • Hazel Morley Memorial Quiz Night @ W I Hall, St Edith’s Lane, Billericay, CM12 9LL
    7:30pm – 11:30pm | £5 entry
    It’s a bring your own drinks and nibbles quiz night for teams of up to 8 people.
  • Halloween Fun Quiz @ Westcliff British Legion Club, 7-9 Northview Drive, Westcliff, SS0 9NG

For your trip back in time:

A classic; I played Culture Club – Church of The Poison Mind. You can see the video below:
