Coffee & Tea – 22nd February

22nd February 2020
Posted by Tyler

Happy Saturday!

@TylerPittaway & Producer Fraser back on air this week for Coffee & Tea.

This week, in honour of LGBT+ History Month, we found out our Drag Names with an online generator:

Tyler: Mrs Frieda Wylde

Ari’s: Madame Peaches Wylde

Fraser: Miss Kiki Bang Bang

That means Ari and Tyler are Drag Sisters! Who’d have thought it?

What else did we talk about?

Some interesting stories we learned about this week:

On this day in music:

  • 1975 – The Average White Band went to No.1 on the US singles chart with ‘Pick Up The Pieces’
  • 1992 – Shakespears Sister started an eight-week run at No.1 on the UK singles chart with ‘Stay’
  • 1997 – No Doubt went to No.1 on the UK singles chart with ‘Don’t Speak.’
