On-air challenge: Every answer is the name of a TV show past or present. Each can be found in consecutive letters in the sentences I read you. Name the TV shows. For example, in the sentence “We watched the acrobat many times”, the hidden TV show is BATMAN. Hint: Each answer has at least 6 letters.

Last week’s challenge from listener Ed Pegg Jr.: Think of something that the majority of adults buy. It’s a two-word phrase with 10 letters in the first word and nine in the second. This phrase uses each of the five vowels (A, E, I, O, and U) exactly twice. What familiar product is this?

Answer: Automobile Insurance

Winner: Maggie Waltz of Ann Arbor, Mich.

Next week’s challenge from listener Sandy Weisz in Chicago: Name two parts of the human body. Put them together one after the other. Change the 7th letter in the result to the next letter of the alphabet to name something that’s often found in books. What is it?
