Nineties Revival – 01/11/2011

3rd November 2011
Posted by Gateway 97.8

Pop stars, hairdressers and taxi drivers is how a 1991 episode of ‘The Word’ described our county when they ran a feature on Essex Girls. Twenty years later, we’ve moved on a bit, though still causing immense fascination. Maybe not for the description above.

1991 was also the year we had number one hits from The Simpsons and Chesney Hawkes and the Dartford Bridge opened. Celebrating it’s 20th birthday at the weekend, I decided to take the Nineties Revival back to the top ten singles and albums which were in the charts then. Elsewhere in the show we featured Seals debut record ‘Crazy’ as he releases a new soul album, Wet Wet Wet were our 80s in the 90s icons and Shades of Rhythm popped up in the dance floor anthem.

So join me for the next 90s Revival – Tuesday evenings from 7 on Gateway 97.8 FM. You can ‘like’ the show on Facebook now too.
