Ways to Connect

Begins Saturday, September 15th on WSDL, 90.7 at 10AM

Take one word, add two teams, create three definitions and throw in a live audience. That’s Says You! – the last word in radio quiz shows since 1996. Join us for a warm and witty hour of recreational thinking. Five rounds mixing words, associations, pop-culture and live music - all at the expense of the English language. Curious listeners know our motto: It’s not important to know the answers…it’s important to like the answers. If you like Scrabble, crosswords, anagrams, and Jeopardy! — you’ll love Says You!

Hal Wilsons speaks with John Reisinger about his book, "The Secrets Behing The Structures"

John Reisinger’s book is about what he calls the back stories behind some of the world’s greatest structures. “Structures have back stories,…sometimes stretching over  centuries and involving wars, intrigues, disasters, and bizarre characters. From the Cathedral at Chartres to the Great Wall of China, the world is full of beautiful and impressive structures with an inside story that few know about.”
