Hurry up and “Wait”
By Ron Ehmke

Ah, these kids today, getting all their news from The Daily Show and The Colbert Report—such a meager regimen! Why, every hardcore public radio listener knows that the best way to keep abreast of world events comes in the form of Wait, Wait … Don’t Tell Me!, NPR’s LOL-worthy quiz show. Every week host/writer Peter Sagal, scorekeeper Carl Kasell, and a rotating panel of regular guests (including Paula Poundstone, Roy Blount, Jr., P. J. O’Rourke, and former Daily staple Mo Rocca) review the absurdities of the past seven days through trivia questions, limericks, and unparalleled one-liners. Miss out no more—Spree is now an official sponsor of WBFO’s broadcast of the show, Sundays from 6 to 7 a.m. and 10 to 11 a.m. on 88.7 FM.
