Word Freaks


NPR game-show host Richard Sher sums up Says You! listeners as people whose "best conversations take place in their living rooms." The Boston radio personality brings his show to Cleveland for a two-program taping this morning at WCPN-FM 90.3 (it will air in late November). The 10-year-old program — heard at noon on Sundays — is sorta like Family Feud crossed with the board game Balderdash. Two three-member teams — the audience constitutes an unofficial third group — are pitted against each other as Sher tosses out little-known words and phrases. The team that scores the most correct definitions wins. "I've learned it's not important to know the answers," says Sher. "It's important to be amused and informed by them."
