Information Please Old Time
Information Please was an American radio quiz show, created by Dan Golenpaul, which aired on NBC from May 17, 1938 to June 25, 1948. The series was moderated by Clifton Fadiman (19041999). A panel of experts would attempt to answer questions submitted by listeners. If the panelists were stumped, the questioner earned five dollars and a complete edition of the Encyclopædia Britannica. As the years went by, the prize money increased accordingly.
Panel regulars included writer-actor-pianist Oscar Levant (19061972) and newspaper columnists and renowned wits and intellectuals Franklin P. Adams (18811960) and John Kieran (18921981). All the panelists were well-versed in a wide range of topics, though each had a specialty. Music questions were often addressed to Levant. Adams was well known for his mastery of poetry and Shakespeare. Kieran was an expert in languages and botany. A typical question would have three or four parts and would require the panelists to get a majority of the questions right, lest they lose the prize money.
