Random Thursday. That is what every Thursday on the Top Morning show is called on Top Radio 90.0. it is the only day of the week when we get to go down Proverbs Lane, sing our stories and for today, talk about our deepest fears. All of these and much more is what each Thursday has in store as the anchor- Tosyn Bucknor does her thing.
But first, there is the Area Show which is the show on which people get to display their talents by: saying, shouting or singing ‘Area’, and it is the show on which traffic updates and weather reports are received. The traffic at MAza Maza, OJo, Sango, Festac, Sagamu, Ojuelegba, Obalende, Onipanu, Dopemu, Iyana Ipaja, Mile 2 and Obanikoro was quite. However, the traffic at Ketu, 3rd Mainland Bridge, Ikorodu, Ikeja, Abule Egba, Ogba, Akute, Berger, Yaba and Egbeda was quite light. The weather was cold and breezy this morning, and it even rained at Ijebu Ode.
During the Area Show, a question was raised about people’s deepest fear. People mentioned various things they fear, including: dogs, snakes, cockroaches, travelling in planes, loneliness, death, sickness, poverty, spiritual wickedness, attacks from men of the underworld, women, and a number of people said they’re afraid of failing. Whether it is one of these or some other ones that have not been mentioned, we all have our fears. It is the mastery of our fears that makes us victorious in life.
Being a Random Thursday, a lot of randomness is allowed even in the songs we listen to. So for the Yarn Free Zone today, we listened to songs like: Delilah; Money, Money, Money by Abba; and Linkin Park’s ‘Crawling’. Couldn’t have been more random huh?
