Janet, a loyal podcast listener, writes… “…How could you mention James Doohan without noting that he lost his finger during the D-day invasion at Juno beach? Despite the omission, I still love your show!” We never meant to count him out – a digital error, if you will!
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.’
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 […]
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 – […]

I would like SO much to know how to obtain […]

As an editor who had much to do with the preparation of the […]
Tim, who listens in on VPR in Northfield, VT, writes in: “Hi! Listening to podcasts is getting me through the quarantine isolation — Actually podcasts are my favorite distraction while doing other things, from exercise to raking the lawn to cooking and dish-washing. “99% Invisible” is one of my favorites; you may well know it.”
Cricket, who listens on KTOO Radio in Juneau, Alaska, writes: I am sitting here listening to Says You! on my computer, on KTOO radio, wishing that you could prevail upon the people at WAMU radio to ditch Here and Now or As It Happens (two shows with way-too-nosy-and-intrusive questioners) or Ask Me Another (LAME) and put on Says You! in this time […]
Tony Lima, who listens in from Silicon Valley, writes: Last night my wife Norma and I watched “A Serious Man.” The ancient TV series “F-Troop” plays a key part. Later I was listening to my “Says You!” archive. Episode 1304 featured a series of questions about the Old West. One of the questions was the […]
