Quiz Kids

As Ken mentioned at the end of the My Favorite Letter Show, this week's show will feature a grand Seven Second Delay Trivia Game. I'll be in studio to serve as your Quiz Master, and we'll be looking to determine the biggest SSD fan of all time. You're all encouraged to call in and compete, but I'll also need the blog's help preparing questions. Listeners will get on-air credit for their help, and will still be encouraged to compete (I just won't ask you your own questions).

As an example, Ken suggested questions about things like the name of Andy's first wife. (Easy, right?) I think lots of personal history questions like this would be great. I'd also like to see some episode-specific questions, call screener questions, and theme music questions. Email me as many questions as you can prepare, and I'll bring them all to the show on Wednesday. Special thanks to listener Joe and blogger Austin for already helping out.

On a personal note, I am excited about returning to the WFMU studios after my little visit for the Wheel of Fate Marathon Show. During that visit, it was so strange watching the voices of Ken and Andy coming out the faces of Ken and Andy. Can you imagine? The guys were just how you'd picture them-- Ken was extraordinarily kind to everyone around him, and Andy carried a little plastic bag with a copy of the New York Post and a box of animal crackers hanging out. Call Screener Jeff was great as well, and he took a couple pictures of me grimacing with excitement. I'm excited to go back and represent the blog this week with our awesome trivia questions.

Andrea, you LOOK just as cute as you sound!

Dave said...

Agreed.

Raj said...

... so do you guys, Ken and Andy.

Man, those were some good questions. I'm glad I didn't call in, as I would have been eliminated pretty quickly. Good job, all.

Kind of sad that Andy's no longer officially a WFMU staff member.

Okasa said...

Yeah... damn that batard Irwin. I've got half a mind to unsubscribe to his Muriel's Treasure podcast.

Grrrrrr.

PS: That would be a good topic for next week's show: Trying to get Andy back into the staff.

(fatal flaw: it would be a fake show)

being a sad and lonely hippy I would be ever so slightly less sad and lonely if I could listen to more friendly banter of Ken and Andy.

Could we try to get the some of the old shows that some of these archivists have collected up? Or some of the old poor audio quality ones that Ken had mentioned before? please?

Richard Jennings said...

How come the congoo.com guy didnt call in this time? I was waiting for that.

Andy on your right, Ken on your left?

A good question would've been - Why did Ken's dog have to wear that lampshade on it's head?

daniel spaniel said...

another good question would be why oh why is Andrea grabbing Andy's butt?

Maybe Ken's dog was trying to be funny.

I was really dismayed to find that I knew the answers to a shockingly large proportion of the trivia questions. I feel much, much worse about myself and my future now.

John,

If it makes you feel better. The questions I didn't know made me feel good at first but then I wanted to pillage the archive to confirm or beg for said show to be in the archive, rather than channel that good feeling by going out and talking to woman.

If that doesn't define onanism, then I don't know what....

Did Andrea say "live or Mem-MOE-rex?"

Too young to know about memorex tapes. I am old. We are old. Oldy McOld.

Great show, though! I knew many many answers but alas could only podcast this ep and hear it yesterday. boo.
