HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAMIREZ!
Todays top of the morning falls on a very special day- Damirez' birthday!
AREA AND ANIMATED FILM, THIS MORNING WITH TOSYN BUCKNOR
This morning people called in to give the report of traffic control in different areas and also their best animated films. Someone called from Akute and said the traffic from Akute to Sabo was bumper to bumper and his best animated film is Tom and Jerry. Another person also called from Ikeja and said a trailer fell along Ikeja road this morning and his best animated film was shrek.
There were several other calls about traffic from everywhere like Chevron to Lekki, Awolowo Road, Iyana Ipaya, Ikorodu, and so on, and animated films like Lion King, Tarzan, Pocahontas and so on were mentioned, with cartoons like Tom and Jerry and even Voltron being mentioned!
People called, sent in text messages, left messages on Facebook, and also twitter, and throughout the Area show, Sweet 17 played nostalgic music in keeping with Thursdays Nostalgic theme, and also some soundtracks, like ‘Hakuna Matata’ from Lion King, and ‘Beauty and the Beast’ from the movie of the same name!
After the Area Show, more music was played, as people called in to give proverbs in any language other than English. We had proverbs in Yoruba, Igbo and Isoko languages today, and all the listeners were able to say what lessons they had learnt from them!
TOP NINE MOMENTS WITH ARAMIDE PAUL TAIWO
Aramide (or SuperMyd! as Tosyn likes to call her), spoke on things happening around the world and Nigeria in particular. Highlights include the tragic earthquake in Haiti which claimed lives and property, the death of Teddy Pendergrass, and the Court ruling that Vice President Jonathan Goodluck could take executive decisions, on behalf of President Yar Adua who is still recuperating!
Tosyn gave the stock market and weather report, and Aramide wrapped things up with a quote as always!
Top of the morning then continued with more music, and the SONG OF THE WEEK!
This week, we have been listening to ‘WHAT A FEELING’ by Beautiful Nibia!
SING YOUR STORY
Sing your Story comes up every Thursday!
Listeners are encouraged to call in with stories, and then sing songs that best capture the emotion they feel!
So many stories were told via phone calls, texts, facebook and twitter and by the time the show ended, people had laughed, cried and s.h.a.r.ed!
