Elite Team Answers Life's Little Questions On 'Big Brain' Program June 24
Got a burning question about one of life's little questions, like "What
causes 'brain freeze'"? An elite rapid reaction force of reference librarians
will be ready to answer it from 10 to 11 a.m. June 24 on the "Big Brain" program,
broadcast live from the new Iowa City Public Library on WSUI (AM 910) and
the WOI Radio Group (AM 640).
Listeners will be asked to come up with questions that never seem to get asked, such as "Why are people right or left handed?" or "Why is a doornail dead?" To add to the fun, listeners will be asked to call in during the live show to provide the answers, or at least, educated guesses, in addition to the librarians' solutions to the query.
Listeners call in with questions during the hour (toll-free 1-866-780-9100) or e-mail them in advance to email@example.com with the subject line Big Brain. "Big Brain," radio that answers life's little questions, is a special edition of "Talk to Iowa" program, broadcast weekdays 9 to 11 a.m. on WSUI (AM910) and the WOI Radio Group (AM640). It can also be heard live on-line via the WSUI website at http://wsui.uiowa.edu.
