We are truly neighbours as I am very local to you (DA8).

Ola Nathan Marsh was the guy with the 'oyinbo accent' who used to announce programmes on NTA 2 channel 5; he was also a friend of JAJ's and used to do voice overs for JAJ's radio programmes.

Yeah, I remember Christ Chapel; I think by the late 80s they moved to VI?

The memories from that era just tend to bring a smile to one's lips.

Other memories include Gbenga Adeboye's programme; another was the pidgin "I go die ooo"; the Lagos Weekend paper (i forget the name now!); then the early naija "funky music" music - Alex O, Alex Zitto; Orits Wiliki, Charly boy etc etc.

Adverts like Planta - " . . . the rich creamy Planta with that best butter taste for you"; Schweppes bitter lemon ". . .  fresh and free as a bird in the skyyyyy . ,   17 kobo a bottle of the shelf, liquid contents only"!

etc etc etc lol lol lol  grin

abi o, ok i rememeber him now, but i know him by a different name though, Lived near me in Ire Akari Estate in Isolo then, Tunji Aderinto to be exact, hummmmmmmm

We must catch up o since we are practically neighbours o,

My favourite ads then was Joy girl , Nasco Buscuit, Corina Shoes, and MOBIL OIL

Do you rememeber this Signal tune (what soap was it?)

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, COUNTING EVERYDAY
Bla, Bla bla,
You can even hear the sound of the ----- ------ @ ------ (if i fill in the gaps you will know)
Will he ever get there?, will he ever make it? Will he ever hear the sound?,
of the ------- ------- @ ------------!!!

I went on Disco 80 one evening and didnt realise it was televised live that evening, Won the dancing competition with Funmi Ajila, but didnt realise my Dad was watching me live angry
The rest is history lipsrsealed, you can imagine what i went thro @ home that month, lol cool, Family meetings galore, grin
That was the era of "get out of my house, oga meji o lee gbe ninu ile kan naa" wink

Those days! we laugh about it now though!! smiley cheesy

Signature tune of Cockrow at Dawn. grin I was really 'small' but I faintly remember Banana Split show. It must be really old. Was Danladi Bako in Cockrow at Dawn? Cool dude. I only remember Ene Oloja and Bitrus and Uncle Gaga. Bako and Barbara Soky were dating at one time, I think. The moment my little eyes could register print I was reading gossip mags. The best soaps,best programmes,best music,best adverts, best everything on TV were in the eighties.
Re: Does Anyone miss NTA Of The 80's? by spikyn: 8:32pm On May 04, 2009
Any ideas on how I can lay my hands on these old programs? Particularly the NTA -made/produced stuff?
Re: Does Anyone miss NTA Of The 80's? by MadMax1(f): 11:00am On May 05, 2009
I really don't know. You might want to try film databases where you may download, or search for DVDs on movie sites,but the NTA programmes might be trickier.

Wait. I just saw that. You were on Adio family as a guest?! shocked You were an actor in the eighties? How cool is that?
Re: Does Anyone miss NTA Of The 80's? by Orilee9ice(m): 1:17pm On May 06, 2009
abi o. Mad max, my sistha! it was really cool then, you were walking on broken ", i was Mrs Adio's nephew who had just arrived from Jand on hols, her daugther didnt like me cos i was "oppressing her", cramping her style so to spaek. you know the drill in those days, i really enjoyed it

wish all those programmes were shown again! i am going to 9ja soon. will se if i can lay my hands on some

Those good old days were really fun! I missed 'em a lot. Where do i start? From cartoons like voltron, superted, terrahawks, thundersub, danger mouse etc to soaps and drama like Bassey and co, The new masquerade, Koko close, behind the clouds and not forgetting my fav, ICHEOKU, an igbo drama depicting the colonial years where a 'supposedly well read' warrant chief/ clerk misinterpretes the intentions of the colonial master to the indigenes. I miss that programme like MAD!

80's TV? NTA? NTV? These are the wisps of the wiil of old men and women. Old School? Why don't you old grunts forget the past and think of the future. Modern times are a hip-hop world, the world of Justin Bieber, Alicia, Rihanna, the internet, sexting, and the many good Nigerian stars that I will not mention. The past is gone and will never come back, I hate it when you old folks keep whining about how good the past was and how bad the present is. I was not there in the past...you were, and if you guys had not spoiled the past, the present would have been much better. As it is, you are responsible for making the present bad.
So please, you old loosers should quit talking about the past, enjoy the present and think of the future...not that you still have much of it left anyway!
