On-Air Challenge: The word “mother” has a surprising property. If you move the first two letters to the end, you get “thermo,” the prefix for “heat.” Every answer today is another six-letter word that, when you move the first two letters to the end, you get another word or phrase.

Last Week’s Challenge from listener Gary Witkin of Newark, Del.: Using only the six letters of the name “Bronte,” repeating them as often as necessary, spell a familiar six-word phrase. What is it?

Answer: “To be or not to be”

Winner: Charlotte Sky of Pebble Beach, Calif.

Next Week’s Challenge: Name a state capital. Change one of the vowels to another vowel and say the result phonetically. You will name a revered profession. What is it?
