Music and Moments: Best show on Nigerian radio?
Welcome to the best show on planet earth!”
That’s usually the opening line of Chukwuebuka, a regular caller on Music and Moments, the hit radio show on Nigeria Info 99.3 FM. As expected, the show’s format has continued to attract more listeners every week.
Produced and presented by Sam Umukoro and Ifeanyi Akogo, Music and Moments is a call-in radio programme driven by music and memories of the listeners. During the show, songs are played and the presenters will open the phone lines for listeners’ to call in and tell what memories the songs evoke. The Programme airs Saturdays, 11am – 12 noon, and Friday 6:15pm – 6:50m.
No doubt, songs from the past can stir powerful emotions and transport one back in time. It is an experience shared by everyone; once you listen to a song from the past, you are transported back to that particular moment, like stepping into a time machine. You feel everything as if you were actually there.
No doubt, the relationship between music and memory is powerful and against this background, the show has continued to resonate with its teeming audience.
An independent production, Music and Moments clearly is another example that people love stories. Many songs are like soundtracks to their lives. Listeners unabashedly call to share all kinds of memories; good, bad, ugly, many callers tell it all – no holds-barred.
However, one complain from some listeners is the time of the show. They believe the time is too short and the station should increase it or give the show more than two days in a week; a request that lends credence to the success of the show.
Arguably one of the best shows on radio today, Music and Moments attracts listeners across different strata of the society and has garnered advertisement from top brands such as Coca-Cola, MTN, Interswitch and FSDH Assets Management Ltd.
