Quiz shows had been a radio staple since the early 1930s, but in the spring of 1938, producer Dan Golenpaul had a fresh idea: Why not allow the much-quizzed listeners to ask questions of the experts? This simple concept became the basis for Information Please, a long-running and winning series that brought wit, style, and good-natured bantering into the homes of America for over a decade.
Featuring host Clifton Fadiman, announcer Milton Cross, and a regular group of panelists that included Franklin P. Adams, John Kieran, and Oscar Levant, Information Please remains one of the most erudite, witty, and consistently entertaining quiz programs ever to hit the airwaves.
