5th June 2012
Posted by Gateway 97.8

Welcome to the Gateway 97.8 old skool dance show 6 blog, where you will find information on definitive cuts from the golden era of Club, Drum & Base and House music from 1986 to 2006.

This Track listing is from show 6 and follows along with some informative/trainspotting facts about the tunes played.

My first track Is a tribute to the late Donna summer.  Whenever you hear this track,  it is guaranteed to make you smile and I am going to break all the old skool dance show rules to play you the original full length re-eq’d 1977 original of I Fee Love,  and I can even remember this getting to No1 when I was in my teens.   This record though is absolutely timeless……. and priceless.
