Smooth Breakfast

6:00amTuesday

6:00amTuesday

Smooth Breakfast is an energetic morning show with amazing music, intelligent talk, and refreshing (though sometimes heated) discussions on topical issues happening around the country aimed to both inform and entertain the listener. We like to say, ‘It is the grown-up way to start your weekday’. Listeners are updated with the top national headlines of the day and a brief rundown of top stories from around the world covering wider Africa, international, business/economy, sports and any other news story of public interest. The Freshly Pressed segment is a detailed analysis of our top national newspaper headline stories by a dedicated panel of analysts from various sectors ranging from Research analysts to Legal counsels, interspersed with listener interaction via social media The Grapevine is our light-hearted but enlightening entertainment news segment offering the best and latest of local new music and video, local and international celebrity gossip. It also provides updates on past and upcoming events, films, and album releases via lively interaction between our in-studio guest analysts and listener on social media. It airs Tuesdays and Thursdays. On The Lagos Talks Segment, listeners call in and comment on topical issues culled from the daily headlines (whether political, economic, governance, etc). In most cases, it is one of the topics discussed earlier in Freshly Pressed. Lagos Talks981 is an opportunity to share views and opinions on the issues discussed and understand better how it directly affects the lives of our listeners.

On Tuesdays, the element that would catch your attention is the Office Journal (10 mins from 11am) which is an avenue for those in the office who are already enjoying the music to share things going on in the office while issues like changing jobs, going for promotions, getting optimum input from staff as per levels of work done in the office.

Strictly Soul on a Wednesday has a different element called Smooth Side of Life, which takes a look at celebrities and other guests on their life and what makes them tick or for a better word smooth.
