On-air challenge: I'm going to give you some words ending in the letter A. Anagram each of them to get a familiar word starting with A.
For example: IDEA --> AIDE.
Last week's challenge, from listener Justine Tilley of Vancouver: Think of a familiar three-word phrase in the form "___ and ___." Drop the "and." Then move the last word to the front to form a single word ... that means the opposite of the original phrase. Here's a hint: The ending word has seven letters. What is it?
Answer: Here and now --> nowhere.
Winner: Karen Peterson.
Next week's challenge: Take the words DOES, TOES and SHOES. They all end in the same three letters, but none of them rhyme. What words starting with F, S and G have the same property? The F and S words are four letters long, and the G word is five letters. They all end in the same three letters.
