Music Box

January 1985
No fear of the camera, and (thanks to his roadie days) personal experience at the hub of the music industry, helps Gareth pass a screen test and in the space of three days he becomes a TV presenter.


Gareth began hosting numerous music and youth programmes for "Music Box"  the pioneering pan-European satellite music station, forerunner to MTV. For 18 months Gareth presented and produced shows such as The Gaz Bag, The Gazette, Techno Top, Chart Attack  and the Gaz Top Running Trivia Quiz. In 1986 he wrote and produced his first documentary "Perseverance: The Story of Slade" shown across the UK and Europe.
