Who would have thought that after just two years, the little show, Your Legal Corner, would get so big?
The creators, producers and sponsors of the one-hour legal advice talk show on Power 106 celebrated its second anniversary last Thursday. The show has quickly become one of the most listened to programmes on radio, so guests descended on Power 106's headquarters on Bradley Avenue to bask in the glow of it all.
Hosts Dahlia Walker-Huntington and Ronnie Thwaites marvelled at the number of persons who were able to access information on legal matters dealing with immigration and deportation. Callers have called in from Africa, South and Central America, and as far away as New Zealand. It was revealed that since its inception, the hosts have never been able to respond to all the callers. No wonder Thursday is one of Power's most popular days.

Power 106's Sandie Saunders spoke of future plans to expand to other markets (South Florida, for starters), and doing outside broadcasts. There were plenty of big ups for Digicel (the show's first sponsor) Communications and Business Solutions who produced and helped to conceptualise the show, and the newest sponsor, Jamaica National Building Society.
Guests out included Leary Johnson, Tricia Gray, Christine Coke, David Cook, Joni Wedderburn, Jean-Paul Menou, Marvin Campbell, Cheena Sharpe, Michael Brown, Nikolaus Price, Andrea Lopez, Errol Howlett, Anna-Kaye Chisholm, Shar-Lee Davis and Suane Morgan.
