On-Air Challenge: Every answer is the name of a popular music group, past or present. You’ll be given clues in which two letters in the group’s name have been changed. For example, given “The Bench Boss,” the answer would be “The Beach Boys,” after changing the N in “Bench” to an A and the first S of “Boss” to a Y.

Last Week’s Challenge: Think of a two-word phrase for something seen at a baseball game, four letters in each word. Change one letter in each word to a new letter to get a new two-word phrase that names a popular music group of the past. Name the group.

Answer: The baseball term is either “foul tips” or “foul pops,” and the music group is the “Four Tops.”

Winner: Michael Oleske of Manhasset, N.Y.

Next Week’s Challenge from listener Sandy Weisz of Chicago: Name an article of clothing that contains three consecutive letters of the alphabet consecutively in the word. For example, “canopy” contains the consecutive letters N-O-P. This article of clothing is often worn in a country that’s name also contains three consecutive letters of the alphabet together. What is the clothing article, and what is the country?
