STORY AND SONG THURSDAY
Top of the Morning show today the 21st of January, in the year 2010, it was fantastic and fun as we started off with the AREA show, where the only thing that gets you on the show is shouting AREA, the area mama in her usual Thursday style, asked the audience to give the weather, traffic reports and to mention what they can see in their neighbourhood through the window. Many people called and gave the weather, traffic reports from areas like, Lekki, Ikoyi, Ikorodu, Surulere, Agege, Mushin, Ketu, Isolo, Apapa, Ijebu and even Oyo state and other places to mention a few. On PROVERBS SEGMENT, where we usually have proverbs in any language other than English and then translate them into English, we had proverbs from, Yoruba land, Ibo land, and Zangalist land, etc. Some people even gave us one proverb in English. The audience communicated through the following mediums, twitter, phone line, text messages, and facebook.
However after the proverbs segment, more music was played, and after that was TOP NINE MOMEMTS by Aramide Paul Taiwo. She started with Nigerian news then to foreign news, sport news and entertainment news. After was the stock exchange and weather report by Tosyn, immediately after that was the usual ‘Quote of the Day’ by Aramide.
The SING YOUR STORY SEGMENT was fun all through, the audience called in, sent messages both on twitter and facebook. The first caller said something very touching about the Haitians earthquake incidence and also sang a song for them. However, many people also called in, sent messages about a story they loved to tell and a song that suited their story.
The ‘sing a story segment’ rounded up the top of the morning show with lots of music from different artistes both naija and foreign. This Thursday was just too gbasky as usual.
