“Welcome to the best show on planet earth!”
That is usually the opening line of Chukwuebuka , a regular caller on Music and Moments , the hit radio show on Nigeria Info 99.3 FM.
Unsurprisingly, the show’s format has continued to attract more listeners every week . Music and Moments presented by Sam Umukoro and Ifeanyi Akogo is a call-in radio programme driven by music and memories of the listeners.
During the programme, 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 piece of music 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.
The relationship between music and memory is powerful and against this background the show has continued to resonate with its teeming audience.
Arguably one of the best shows on radio today , Music and Moments attracts listeners across different strata of the society.
