Thursday night, April 17, thousands of WNPR members jammed into the two theaters at The Bushnell in downtown Hartford. They came to see host Peter Sagal, scorekeeper Carl Kasell, and a group of regular panelists as they tore apart the week's news on Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me. The hit NPR show has been going strong for 10 years, and has grown into one of the most popular programs in public radio history.
The panelists for the show were three long-time contributors, humorists Roy Blount Jr., Tom Bodett, and Roxanne Roberts. They tackled the important issues of the day: The presidential race, Pope Benedict's visit to the U.S., and Necco Wafers.
Each week, audience members are quizzed on their knowledge of the week's news, and the crew welcomes in a special guest. This week, it was former Saturday Night Live star Jane Curtin.
If you missed it on the weekend broadcast, you can listen to the show, and thanks for making the "Wait, Wait" event a huge Connecticut success!
