marathon Wednesday

As you already know without being told that wednesdays are usually days to look out for because they simply stand out.Lets do this for starters or people that are not familiar with the show,its AREA AREA AREA AREA!!!!!! Yeah!thats our early morning anthem like 'ARISE O COMPATRIOTS',you all know what you do on wednesdays now no need to tell again.....ok i will tell,its request wednesday when our esteemed callers dont only give us the traffic reports of their areas but are opportuned to hear any song of their choice that is you give us the traffic and weather report of your area and we in return give you your choice song.
We can never forget our top nine(9)moments with supermide.This is a mment when we are put through the top nine(9)newsaing the headlines and if memory serves me right i thing the major topic of discussion was the return of our be frank i dont know maybe i should conclude or still hang on to it as a rumour but whatever they said he's back.
It was also a day when we had guests in the studio and without being told i can bet you all want to know who graced the day,SAMKLEF and BRACE ever heard of them?SAMKLEF is the man behind HE DON BETTER ever heard that song?if you say know,then you are on a long thing and if you have,you are a strong thing.They took us through their journey so far in the industry and we got to find out that Samklef wasnt only a musician but a producer,he actually produced our song of the week by VECTOR and track titled KILODE.BRACE on the other hand falls into the language speaking artiste and i know you will be saying'we have too many of them already'but i have a speech like MLK junior had a dream and my speech says........LOOK OUT FOR THIS GUYS,they are simply hot.
then the moment that stole the day when you had 15 seconds to tell us about yourself and the calls kept coming,lets listen to some of the comments
Segun says:i am segun for all information check my profile on face book SEGUN TT,Oyindamola says:My name is Oyindamola i am an intern in top radio and when i am not working i think and write and Shola says:i am shola an intern in top radio who loves being creative,you wont believe some sang their way into 15 seconds but believe me when i say you could know alot about someone in less than 15 seconds.
I will never forget DJ DON GQ who was on the wheels of steel doing what he knows how to do best,dishing out unending jamz to make it memorable time in the studio.after all said and done it was time to go and we all couldnt believe it was time up for us because the show to us was just begining and yours truly Tosyn signed out with her own 15 seconds and you want to know how?ok i am Tosyn bucknor and i am signing out DJ GQ top of the morning pop champaigne and the song played sraight into the waiting ears of our listeners and we called it a WRAP.For those of you that missed out of todays show you know what i tell you but before i do,go pop champaigne and sip on it while you are sitted on a long thing.

Fun Fearless Proposal(?) Friday!!!

The weekend is here again & of course the Friday edition of top of the morning starts off with the usual AREA Show where listeners call in & send text messages informing other listeners of the traffic situation in their AREA & also giving us weather report of their AREA. It was fun as usual with soothing music & there were a whole lot of responses from different locations in Lagos & environs. Then the Area show paved way 4 another segment which was a mixture of a week review & the shout out segment where callers have to call in & shout out for real, text messages were not left out but they had to be creative to be read out, believe me callers were really shouting out to friends, family members & off course loved ones which was really fun.
And now for the part I enjoy the most on the show on Fridays is always the entertainment segment where we get to know what’s happening in the entertainment scene both home & abroad & we had a guest in the studio to help out with the entertainment gist unknowing to her that she was in for a big surprise.The surprise popped up when a random call came into the studio & it was a guy proposing to his girl friend who happened to be in the studio & he popped the question (will you marry me? ),then he walked into the studio still making the call,then his girl friend flipped out in amazement & in great shock at what her boyfriend just did & the whole station was in awe of what just happened with congratulatory messages coming from everybody around.
The show had to go on after the surprise package with the entertainment segment and Beyonce’s father was in the news; the latest gist about him being that he now has to pay child support for the child he fathered with another lady while still married to Beyonce’s mum. Ha!
Lady Gaga was also mentioned as being the big winner at the Brits Awards which held on Tuesday! She won three awards, including International Female Act. The Brits is in its thirtieth season and Oasis was honoured- Best Album in thirty ywars. Apparently, the Spice Girls won Best Peformance in thirty years!
And congratulations to KEL!
Now only will she look good fashion wise, but also cos of her hair!
Yes o, KEL and GBEMI OLATERU-OLAGBEGI were recently unveiled as Brand Ambassadors for Soul Touch Hair products!
Yes o!
The show wrapped with ‘Ijinle Pampam’ a song by the Knighthouse crew featuring eLDee, Kel YQ and Othello!
So guys, let’s do this again next week, abi?

did today rock?

Did today rock? i am having to start with this question because i dont know if it did.was a little down this morning with a headache so i really couldnt be up and doing,but as usual top of the morning rocks all the time thats because it starts with AREA and others follow.What was the highlight of today?ok i will tell you,how many of you remember DR LEE's chinese interpretation of AREA?dont tell me you missed out of that toooo because i truly will not forgive you.
Anyway we had our traffic report from our truluy dedicated callers who helped us with the traffic report of where evere they were and SUPERMIDE gave us the top nine(9) moments,at least we now know the acting president of the country Goodluck Jonathan has kicked against the congratulatory messages he has been getting from the media on his conferement as acting president and in the same vane stopped people from paying him visits in Abuja.thanks to Supermide I wouldnt have known.there was the launch of a new programme today VALENTINE FLAVA with Matilda and Okechukwu and as a result saw to the early closing of the top o the morning crew.we were also entertained with some sports news by tosyn.i am looking foward to tomorrow because we definitly will be having a guest up in the studio with us and who he/she is................i truthfully do not know but know this that i am equally excited and anxious to know who this person will be.while i take my leave from the studio i want to wish Manchester United good luck in their clash against Ac Milan later today.....with these few words i hope i have been able to carry you along.any quote for the day?nope SUPERMIDE has already done that.

Top of the Morning (welcome back edition) Today’s edition of ‘Area’ was the welcome back edition, where listeners had the opportunity of talking about their weekend. It also featured the usual traffic and weather report. Amu Francis was the first caller on the show.

During the show, information about activities which took place during the weekend was given. The weekend was packed with activities ranging from football and the Grammy awards.

For sport, the ban on the Togo team by CAF was reviewed and listeners expressed their opinion through phone calls, text messages, facebook and twitter.
For the Grammys, award receivers included Beyonce, Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga and Michael Jackson, whose children received it on his behalf.

After the area show, listeners were given the opportunity to give acceptance speeches if they were to win an award.

The top nine moments which was read by Aramide Paul Taiwo at past nine featured stories on health, technology, entertainment and sports.

After the top nine moments, the song of the week was introduced which was Taylor swift’s ‘you are not sorry’.

The top question for today was ‘What do you think about Nigerian artistes organising beneficial concert for Jos like they are doing for Haiti?’.Most viewers said that the crises in Jos was as a result of religion but Haiti was a natural disaster. The show ended with Jason Derulo’s ‘watcha ya say’.
