Hello dear Gateway listener.  Here’s another batch of fine tunes for you to chill out to.  I also have a special guest on the show.  One of Danny la Rue’s former dancers who is also a super soprano, Katie Milton, who will be chatting about the Marvellous Music Hall which comes to the Queen’s Theatre in Hornchurch every so often.

This week’s ‘Retro Rewind’ takes us back to August 1978 where I’m counting down the top five UK chart singles.
