Pardon our oxymoron – New Archives, Available Now!

For those of you who wonder what the Says You! gamers sounded like at the very beginning – head to our shop and check out our season archives.  Seasons 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 are finally available to hear and own as a set or individual episodes.

Something Bubbly?

John, who hears us from KQED, writes…

“Thank you for reconfiguring archival shows for rebroadcasting at a time when you cannot schedule new live shows. My wife and I celebrate weekly by listening while drinking a nice bottle of champagne–perfect, synchronous timing. That’s real champagne, not some ‘sparkling imitation.’

Verse Comes Two-Verse

Jordan, who listens on KUHF, writes…

“I listened to the repeat that was released this morning and it just occurred to me – were the songs featured in Round Five of SY-2207 all first performed by one artist and made more famous by other artists? E.g. “I Heard It Through the Grapevine” was first performed by The Miracles and Marvin Gaye made it more famous, and “Respect” was first performed by Otis Redding but became more famous with Aretha Franklin’s rendition?”

Clever guess!  It’s not entirely correct and not exactly the answer we were looking for, but thanks for taking the time to craft and send a response.  We were looking for: “All the lyrics come from the second verse of the song” (hence, the title of the round: Verse Comes Two-Verse.)

Funny Bones!

Ron, a NEPR listener, writes…

On one of the recent composite shows, a round was introduced as having been submitted by Larry Blamire. By any chance was this the same Larry Blamire who wrote, directed, and starred in the hilarious sci-fi spoof “The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra”?

Says You! attracts all kinds of listeners – sometimes its almost scary to find out who we resonate with… Proud to have Larry and Ron as listeners.  Here’s the trailer to Larry’s sci-fi classic!
