SOMETHING NEW FOR SAYS YOU! The ‘9-Tease’ Remix with the Original Six

In 1996 Says You! rolled out as a half-hour. NOW, these early episodes have just been remixed and remastered. Join us this weekend for something NEW – Says You! Repartee, repurposed for today’s entertainment needs.

After a deep archival dive into our 600+ shows, we emerged with games that have NEVER been podcast and most have been aired just once or twice. Why? In 2006 Says You! grew from a half-hour of hilarity to an hour. Now, ten perfectly preserved seasons can be heard again.

Most of us will hear these questions and quips for the very first time.

New format, same game. Instead of five rounds with a running score, these 60-minute shows sport nine rounds. Richard Sher hosts as our intimate, invitation-only audiences cheer on three games at each performance – a total of 15 rounds! We’ve selected the NINE rounds that play well with others. Enjoy Says You! in our amateur age – filled with bon mots and blunders that are as ‘fresh’ as ever.

Shelter in Poetry

Craving an escape from politics and pandemics? Try a panacea of poetry!  Arnie Reisman’s new anthology is packed with immunity-boosting insight.  Explore new territory (Arnie’s mind) without the downside of air travel.

Arnie Reisman shares his thoughts in poetic form. It’s April -America’s national poetry month – and this April is a perfect time to read, write, and think.

“Keep washing until hope shines through

I feel I’m living through the pages cut
From the first printing of the Book of Job
(The God-approved edition)
It was some segment about the threat
Of end of days or evolution of species

I feel I’ve been given the job
Of finding where to punctuate
A run-on sentence heading for the final period
At a time when all pens,
Pencils & cursors have vanished…”

Same Mame, different Name

Alan from Miami, FL writes –

“Okay, first of all I love your show, but I have to get this out before my head explodes. Its Saturday night and I am listening to your show in Miami, and I am screaming at my radio in my car in the most loving and respectful way I possibly can. It is because of your Broadway question at the top of the show. I will just get to the point. Ok, Auntie Mame and Mame are two completely different shows that are both based on the same woman and the same book called Auntie Mame by Patrick Dennis. Auntie Mame is the non-musical version that preceded the musical version that is simply called Mame. Both shows had broadway runs and Auntie Mame definitely starred Rosalind Russell on Broadway AND the amazing film version that followed. Mame the musical version came later and starred Angela Lansbury on broadway and when it came time to make the film version of the musical they went with Lucille Ball in the title role.

So, the question that you asked in its original form, the correct answer would have been Rosalind Russell in Mame because Rosalind Russell was never in Mame because she was in Auntie Mame.”

 

While the panel got stumped on semantics we did issue a correction at the end of that very same show. To say the least, everyone here at Says You! has been sent a directive to watch the original Auntie Mame! Thanks to Alan for the clarification and reaching out.
