In the first segment someone mentioned that the copywriter that wrote Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer must be a really rich man. This is actually a really interesting story that you might want to share with listeners. Robert L. May wrote Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer for Montgomery Ward Department Store, as a children's book to hand out to customers during the Christmas Season. May did not actually own the rights to the song since he created for Montgomery Ward and received no extra bonuses for creating it. While working on the project, May's wife died of cancer, leaving him swamped with medical bills, while trying to care for his daughter at the end of the great depression. As an act of charity, Montgomery Ward gave the rights to Rudolph to May after the season was over. May got together with his brother-in-law, a songwriter by profession, and they ended up selling 25 million copies of their song, making May a rich man.

Another great All Quiz Bonanza! Congrats on your 150th show too!

However, I have to inform you that you got all of the "who is this song about?" quiz wrong. Taylor writes all of her songs exclusively about me.

The non-word vehicle designations are a marketing tactic by the automakers to force an association with the brand when talking about the vehicle. Basically the exact opposite of the quiz, you associate the RX-7 with Mazda, the 325 with BMW, the CL55 with MB, the S60 with Volvo, etc.

Come in brains! Blinkered doesn't mean drunk. It can be used to describe a narrow minded person, or someone with a very limited point of view. That's at least the most frequent use I've heard. It originates from horse racing where horses who are easily spooked or distracted from running straight have their field of vision purposely limited by a device - blinkers.

Example: he's always got such blinkered opinions on things.
