Listen to the Story

CARL KASELL: From NPR and WBEZ-Chicago, this is WAIT WAIT…DON’T TELL ME, the NPR News quiz. I’m Carl Kasell. We’re playing this week with Faith Salie, Luke Burbank and Charlie Pierce. And, here again is your host, at the Chase Bank Auditorium in downtown Chicago, Peter Sagal.


Thank you, Carl.


SAGAL: Thank you everybody. We’ve arrived at the WAIT WAIT…DON’T TELL ME Bluff the Listener game. Call 1-888-Wait-Wait to play our game on the air. Hi, you’re on WAIT WAIT…DON’T TELL ME.


SAGAL: Hi, who’s this?

KELLY: My name is Michele.

SAGAL: Where are you calling from Michele?

KELLY: Franklin, Massachusetts.

SAGAL: Franklin, Massachusetts, that’s sort of out in the suburbs of Boston, right?

KELLY: That’s right.

SAGAL: What do you do there?

KELLY: I’m a musician and a music teacher.

SAGAL: Oh, I see. That’s cool. That’s a great thing to do. I always think of music teachers as basically being the real life version of Hogwarts, because…


SAGAL: No, I’m serious, because you’re giving our kids magical powers if only they studied.

KELLY: Oh, I wish you hired us.

SAGAL: What’d you say?

KELLY: I wish you could hire us.
