I love the show Wait Wait on NPR. It comes on at 11am every Saturday and I plan my morning around it. Used to clean while listening, now I play on this site while listening.

Does anyone else think this is the funniest radio show going? And I love it best when Paula Poundstone and Tom Odet are on.

Sigh, I haven't listened to "Wait, Wait..." in ages, but really enjoy it! I used to listen pretty much regularly when I was driving long haul because Saturdays usually found me sitting in some truck stop and it sure beat listening to all the "Truck Stop Lawyers" inside at the restaurant counter! Now that I'm always home on Saturday, we're usually doing other things!

But of course, and the big prize is Dan Castle's voice on yr. answering machine. I like the limerick portion.

I don't listen regularly, but enjoy it if it happens to be on.

I'm sure that you meant Carl Castle, JavaPhil. He's a great news reader and it seems a little odd to hear him in the less restrained environment of WWDTM. But I do enjoy him in a Don Pardo kind of way.

The Saturday a.m. show that gets my attention on NPR is Car Talk.

Lightbulb NPR Programs

Oh, yes, I listen to it - and Car Talk, if I have time, or in my truck on the way to jobs. NPR's programming (when I can catch it) is both stimulating and informative, if you can sift through the extreme liberal stuff. I don't take anything for granted, when they report something even though it might sound absolutely true, I do my research and look at both sides of the story.
