Dear Friends & Visitors,


Something to share from the Age of the Dinosaur!

17thBIRTHDAY 1963
Xmas 1963

It’s amazing how time flies because another Xmas is already upon us!

I’ll be off my beat for the rest of the year, and as we commemorate the birth of the King of Kings, here’s wishing my Christian readers from around the world the Merriest Christmas ever, and all others, the best of this holiday season.

I should be back here on January 1, 2015, God willing.

TỌLA.

      Thanks, Mr. J for the compliments.

      It was taken Dec. ’63 by Paragon Photo, Ado-Ekiti. I know you are from Ondo State but have you ever been to Ado?

      Thanks for those wonderful pics from the past, especially the one on how the West was rendered ungovernable bt the central govt. which I re logged here.

        Yes I have, one of my childhood friends is from Ijan. I wonder if Paragon Photo preserved their archives? I am shooting a documentary early next year on Yoruba indigenous percussion music which will definitely take me to Ado.

        Dear Mr. J.,

        Ijan? Really? That’s great1

        Paragon, “Ọga Paragon”, as we addressed him back then, used to have his studio on the main road near the central market before the big Catholic Church. You can ask about him as he was v, well-known but with my knocking the 70 door (!) he must be well into his 80s now.

        Good luck in that wonderful musical project. If you send me a note to my contact address, I’ll direct you to a musicologist who MAY have ideas or know people who may have ideas on your project. He composes, is a maestro on the Pipe Organ but best of all, he teaches Music.

        Rgds,
        Tola.
