Whatd' Ya Know?

I've gotten so far behind on our blogging- it has been a busy couple of weeks. Two weekends ago Brian and I attended a taping of Michael Feldman's What'd Ya Know? , a news quiz from Wisconsin Public Radio. The live taping was held at the Hoyt Sherman Place in Des Moines, seen below.
The inside of the theater was beautiful. We sat in the balcony and had a nice view of the stage. Here Brian is calling his parents, brother Jeff, and sister-in-law Laura, telling them where we were and that they should listen to the show. Here's me!Watching a radio show being taped is interesting. Brian thought it would be very formal, but it wasn't. In fact, it was a little goofy to watch. As you can see, the stage was anything but formal. We had lots of fun! Highlights of the show included a fantastic opera singer from Des Moines Opera House, a retired couple playing the piano who were a huge hit on YouTube, and the introduction of a HUGE pork tenderloin sandwich from Smitty's Tenderloin Shop in Des Moines. This picture is not great (we were pretty far way), but you can make out Michael, the owner of Smitty's, and the tenderloin sandwich. (Jeff- this is for you!) What fun!
