Motivation Minute is a radio programme aired every weekday on Music Radio 97 in Trinidad and Tobago.
The programme started in March 1992 and has continued without a break since.
It’s not always a minute, usually a handful of seconds longer. It’s not always about motivation. Often described by listeners as inspirational, thought-provoking, good reminders or just plain interesting. The segment uses everyday experiences (often personal ones) as starting points from which to explore aspects of the human condition.
