Happy Saturday!

Tyler Pittaway back with you this week on Gateway after a weekend in Germany. Let me tell you now; if you’ve not been to Hamburg before – get over there straight away and see it for yourself. It’s super Christmassy. Anyway – here’s what happened on the show this week.

The Basildon Community Gospel Choir

I had the pleasure of being joined in the studio (very impromptu) by the excellent Basildon Community Gospel Choir.

The vocal on these guys are absolutely amazing – and you can see more from them on Facebook.

In The News:

On this dayΒ in music:

  • 1989, Billy Joel started a two week run at No.1 on the US singles chart with ‘We Didn’t Start The Fire’
