      I don’t know where to begin. Ok, I do know…Brule. That’s where I started deer hunting in 1989. Deer avoiding, really. I would play along with my intense hunting buddies, march into the woods in the cold darkness, then plot my escape…back to my truck, hoping not to be seen or heard. By 7:30 am I was driving aimlessly, finding hot coffee where I could…Lake Nebagamon, Iron River, Barnes, Gordon…pastry, as well (duh!)…while deer avoiding, I discovered WYK…OMG! It began a 27 year tradition…not just during deer season…every Saturday! I have told quite a few people that this show being axed hurts more than if the remaining members of my nuclear family died….that’s the family I was born into, right? Not the family I had some choice in (wife), and then made my own (kids)…don’t want them gone, but the others. Don’t want them gone, but would trade their lives for WYK…sounds harsh, but you need to get to know them….

      Anywell, I am still grieving. My weekend walks on Park Point here in Duluth aren’t the same. I was old enough (23) when I found WYK to know what I had…I relished it for those 27 years, never took it for granted…life was NEVER better than to hear Michael Feldman burst out laughing…truly…magical…perfection. Thanks.

    Thanks much for the files! Glad to find out that not much has changed since 1985. Show format was the same (except for category “Presidents”), and on June 22nd one of the topics was self-driving cars and drones… not kidding (43:00).

    This is beautiful, Michael. I am just going to marinate in this for… jeez, who knows how long? Months, maybe.

    Hey, I wanted to ask – in the event that you see this and don’t think I’m mad – do you remember a show about twelve years ago in which you asked a guy from Chicago what he did in Chicago and he responded with “Drink beer”? And then you asked him what kind of beer and he said “Cheap beer”? And then you gave him some beer?

    This has been driving me crazy since the day I heard it and I have no idea how to track it down.

    Anyway! Thanks, again. This is stupendous.

    This is great. You should consider uploading these to the Internet Archive (archive.org). A nice interface for folks and an easy way to keep it organized. Once you have 50 shows uploaded, they’ll create a collection just for your uploads.

    Michael – I found you on Whad’ya know.net. Sent you an e-mail at address and it bounced back. Facebook connection isn’t working today. Sorry to make this so public, but don’t know how to contact you otherwise…

    Hope you are doing well and What’d Ya Know 2.0 is thriving. Back at the transition from radio to podcast, I made a donation to keep the program afloat, but never heard anything back. I saw the transaction on my Visa statement, so I know it went through.

    I’m not the most techy person, so wasn’t sure how the Podcasts would work. I still don’t have a cellphone, and finally got off dial-up a few years ago. I had subscribed, and was expecting that they’d be loaded into an e-mail, or they’d be some kind of notice. I haven’t heard anything. How does this work?

    In this 2017 political roller-coaster world, your voice is needed more than ever. Still doing the 2-hour Saturday show? I’d love to listen.
    Thanks.

    Michael, I am converting all your mp3s to mp4s (video).

I am doing this for myself mostly but I’d be happy to give you the files when I’m done for your audience.

    Well, I’m listening to “Dinner Party Download” and I hear an interview with Ann Lamont talking about forgiveness. Then I remember an episode of Whadya Know and a rather uncomfortable​ exchange between Annie and the show’s host, Michael Feldman. I searched the Web and found this website. Our local station uncerimoniuosly dumped Whadya Know a few years ago and it was nice to discover that Mr Feldman is still cracking wise. Funny how the mind works, eh?

    So, I wanna know… did Annie ever forgive you?

    Great to find you again, Michael!

      No, never. Tell you what happened, love(d) Annie btw, great writer, and funny, but in her first novel was this really goofy character I thought was comic relief who turned out to be, really, Annie herself. When I mention how hilarious she was she hung up on me like, forever. If you’re out there, Annie, miss you.

        I was mopping the family room floor on a Saturday, listening to the show on KPCC, when that exchange took place. It was one of the oddest radio bits I’d ever heard and really did seem to come out of left field. While it did seem like high drama at the time (I was mopping the floors, remember…), it was also disconcerting and may have been the only time I’d ever heard Michael Feldman at a loss for words.

        Glad to see you’re still alive and kicking… and I hope that Ms. Lamott gets in touch one day. Life is just too short!

    Great show yesterday. A bit of focus on the fairly insignificant country of Norway…

    I’m watching on YouTube, perhaps that is the way to go…? Not sure if a podcast is the thing for your loyal fans. Don’t picture them wearing earphones, but who knows. The livecast might need to be edited down from 4 hours and 46 minutes, though 🙂 Just my 5 cents.

    You complained that it had been a segment without any actual content being revealed. But that was not true. It was revealed that Tom once gave a caller an unfortunate advice: The caller’s car wouldn’t go in reverse, so Tom told him to buy a house with a circular driveway…

    Dearest Michael and WYK fans, I was listening to WYK this past weekend on Washington DC’s WAMU and the show involved a guest recalling a funny Harry Caray traffic stop story. I’d love to share it with my father-in-law but all attempts at finding recent previous shows just direct me to podcast subscribe links which then tell me the ‘item is not available in U.S.’. Can any of you direct me to a link to the show I mentioned above?

    Michael, I just have one question that’s been burning in my brain since I first listened to your show, lo these 10 or so years now. There, at least in Milwaukee, was a little 2 minute or so ditty played between the 2 parts of the show. It is an upbeat number and it got me through the day when I was working for the phone company (Car Talk and A Prairie Home Companion were the other staples of my day). I want to know if there is a name for it, or if I can download a digital copy or what? I really miss the show and miss this tune.
