The Mad Trivia Party

with Chris Played by Charles Berman

Where we get mad, and you get trivial!


A state of emergency is in effect in Broome County and there is a ban on all unnecessary travel, so the panel cannot make it to the station for The Mad Trivia Party this week.

Stay out of the rain, or else your radio will get wet and you will be unable to listen to us next week.
