Whad'Ya Know?

The two-hour comedy/quiz/interview show heard on public radio stations across the country. Each week Michael Feldman invites folks to answer questions drawn from his seemingly limitless store of insignificant (but somehow important) information.

We have some very sad news to share with you.

The cast and crew of Whad’Ya Know? are devastated by the loss of our dear friend, Jim Packard. “Jim was my only successful long-term relationship,” Feldman said. “He was simply the best and irreplaceable,” he concluded. For 27 years, Jim kept Whad’Ya Know? on time and Michael on track. He stood by Michael’s side, taking the jabs and barbs of the host with grace. Jim kept score and awarded prizes for the quiz and took listeners to the “Town of the Week.” His final performance was a live Whad’Ya Know? broadcast from New York City on June 9, 2012.
