Whad’ya know about Penn State?


Michael Feldman’s syndicated public radio quiz show “Whad’Ya Know?” aired live from Penn State’s Eisenhower Auditorium last weekend. The university’s website has a gallery of photos from the visit.

Feldman aimed a few sharp jokes at one of his guests, Penn State President Graham Spanier, making light of Joe Paterno’s accident on the sidelines last year and on the university’s refusal to release Paterno’s salary. Before playing a tune on his washboard (we are not making that up), Spanier told Feldman that Penn State is one of the few places where the stadium is named after the former college president, but the library is named after the football coach.

Ben Hughes of the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club, local chef Paul Kendeffy, and Penn State Altoona professor and former sportscaster Bob Trumpbour also were among Feldman’s guests. Feldman opened the show by leading the audience in several rounds of “We Are … Penn State!”

You can download a podcast version of the show from the Public Radio International website.
