Hey, Hit Parade listeners—we’ve got an unusual schedule for August. Today’s show is a recording of a recent installment of Slate’s Wednesday Night Live, which was a live trivia edition. Hit Parade host Chris Molanphy was our quizmaster, and he fired Billboard chart brainteasers to a foursome of Slate luminaries. Then they turned the tables on Chris! (Did any of them stump him?)
Later this month, in the place where we would normally bring you a full-length story, we’ll instead be doing a super-sized edition of our regular Hit Parade—“The Bridge” show. We’ll be following up last month’s Yacht Rock episode with some very special guests. You won’t want to miss it.
