Says You! - A Quiz Show for Lovers of Words, Culture, and History

Says You! is public radio’s quintessential quiz show, aired weekly from coast to coast. Undeniably the warmest, wittiest cocktail party you’ll ever enjoy, whether there’s bubbly in your glass or in your personality. It’s spirited and civil, brainy and boisterous, with bon mots and badinage aplenty, peppered with musical interludes. If you could play badminton with words, it would sound much like Says You!. Fast paced and playful, it’s the most fun you can have with language without getting your mouth washed out with soap.

Take one word, add two teams, create three definitions and throw in a live audience. And, that’s Says You!, the last word in radio quiz shows since 1996. Curious listeners know our motto: It’s not important to know the answers…it’s important to like the answers.

From the Martha's Vineyard Hebrew Center in Vineyard Haven, it's Says You! Our original panel - Carolyn Faye Fox, Arnie Reisman, Paula Lyons, Tony Kahn, Francine Achbar, and Barry Nolan play a retrospective game. Dave Zobel guest hosts this episode with music from Zoe and Jon Zeeman. 

You might have noticed the show is a few minutes longer than usual. Beginning this season we're letting the band noodle a little longer and including the full musical pieces where we usually cut for the NPR news break.
