Back on January 21st, I wrote about my favorite 75 radio shows, with the criteria that to qualify for the list, I had to have heard at least 7 shows.
At that time, I had only heard 5 shows of Twenty Questions. Twenty Questions is just like the game you played as a kid or a teen, where you (actually a panel of five) can ask up to 20 questions to guess whatever the show has cooked up: an animal, vegetable or mineral.
You don't have to be a mental giant to enjoy the show. Twenty Questions was heralded in it's day for being a family show that everyone from blue collar pop to 7 year-old junior could enjoy. It was also different from the rise of the stunt game show, which was widely popular at the time, but also received a lot of negative press as well.
It was fun entertainment then and still is. You will be surprised how quickly a half an hour goes by while listening to the show. I'd probably put it somewhere in the 40's in my Top 75 List...
There are now 10 shows available.
