was a contestant on a NPR trivia game show with her daughter. Ms. Falk reports today that she recently wrote a trivia game for NPR's Ask Me Another program. According to Ms. Falk:

My Game on NPR

You may have heard I was a contestant on Ask Me Another, the NPR trivia game show, in April 2014.

Perhaps you know one of my talents is re-writing the lyrics of popular songs, usually to celebrate the milestone birthday or anniversary of a family member.

You can hear the game I wrote based on the song Gloria, by Van Morrison. The guitarist of Ask Me Another, Jonathan Coulton, plays the melody and sings my revised lyrics. The contestants guess the name of the woman described -- and then sing and spell her name, like Van Morrison.

Listen to the segment or enjoy the entire show;...

Yes, I was paid for this game, but, more important, now I am a contributor to NPR; someday, that may be useful in my work as a Public Relations professional.

Please let me know how well you did playing the G-L-O-R-I-A game.
Here's the Spell My Name game created by Ms. Falk

How well did you play G-L-O-R-I-A?
