Says You!

Sunday at 6:00pm

It was a dark and stormy night when, suddenly, Richard Sher drew the Trivial Pursuit question "What do you call the band of low pressure that surrounds the Earth at the Equator?"

In his typically debonair fashion, his first thought was: "Who cares?! What a dumb question."

Then, he realized the answer was "the doldrums."

"Eureka!" he shouted to himself, because if he shouted out loud, his game-mates would think he was crazy or, worse yet, steal his idea.

Richard's epiphany was "the point is not that it's important to know the answer; it's only important to like the answer."

When he managed to get a bunch of people in a coffee shop talking by challenging them to name the music on the shop's sound system, a game show was born!

Says You! - the witty word game show.

Says You

Richard Sher, creator, executive producer and host of the long-running wordplay program Says You died on Feb. 9 after a battle with cancer. He was 66.

Richard created the program 19 years ago using his talent and passion for language and puzzles. The program is now carried on more than 100 public radio stations nationwide.

VPR is sorry to announce that, due to illness, Says You must postpone their live shows scheduled for Friday, February 13 at Saint Michael's College and Saturday, February 14 at Dorset Playhouse.

The shows will be rescheduled at a later date, and the folks at Says You will be contacting all ticket buyers to make arrangements. For further details please visit Says You's wesbite here.
