Gary from Littleton, CO, and a loyal listener of KQED, wrote us about a bonus question:
Back in February 2018 I attended a taping in Palo Alto, CA. One of the rounds had the following songs as answers:
I Heard It Through The Grapevine
Like A Rolling Stone
Little Old Lady From Pasadena
Glad All Over
As a bonus question, the host asked the audience what those songs had in common and said that the answer would be given on air. I don’t recall ever hearing that answer. Do you recall what the common thread was?
The common thread was that in each case, the lyrics were taken from the second verse of the song. Hence the round title: “Verse Comes Two-Verse.” We never said we would reveal the answer on air though, so we won’t blame you for missing it!
