I've listened to Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me on NPR for several years and their prize has always been Carl Kasell's voice on your home answering machine. I was looking at their webpage and found samples
of some of the messages Carl has recorded. I never realized that Carl would record whatever message people wanted and would even sing, if it was requested. His rendition of "What's New Pussycat?" was worth the price the people paid for it.
