The public radio game show Says You! is coming to Bloomington — and staying longer than expected! A live taping of the show Saturday, May 3, at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater is sold out … but WFIU and the IU Jacobs School of Music are hosting a second show! It’s Sunday, May 4, at 1 p.m. at Auer Hall on the IU campus.

The Buskirk-Chumley box office is handling ticket sales for both shows, including the Sunday show at Auer Hall.

At both shows, host Richard Sher and his panelists will offer their signature wit and whimsy, bluff and bluster. The Auer Hall taping also is scheduled to include a question-and-answer session, and a performance by IU’s Wasmuth Quartet.

The programs being recorded in Bloomington all will find their way to public radio listeners across the country in the months to come. Sher is calling this round of live tapings “Hoosier Dada — Abstract Wit and Wordplay from Says You!

Says You! is a simple game with words played by two three-person teams in front of live, enthusiastic audiences. For nearly two decades the program has offered listeners the best quips, quotes, and questions that public radio has to offer, all scored to the rhythms of musical guest performers.

Dozens of categories pique your curiosity, among them Cryptic Puns, What’s the Difference, and Odd Man Out. At the core of the game are the bluffing rounds where three definitions are given for a mystery word, only one of which is the true meaning. Says You! airs on WFIU at noon every Saturday. Because of strong listener support, WFIU recently expanded the weekly program from 30 minutes to an hour. Find out more about the radio program at the Says You! website.
