We can't offer his voice on your answering machine (you'll have to win that), but how about official scorekeeper Carl Kasell's head on a pillow instead? Wait Wait Don't Tell Me
, catapulted mild-mannered, NPR newscaster Carl Kasell into superstar status! OK, that may be a slight exaggeration since he did earn a place in the Radio Hall of Fame after an over fifty year career in radio, including being the newscaster for NPR's Morning Edition
for over thirty years. Regardless, his time on NPR's oddly informative news quiz show, Wait Wait Don't Tell Me
, has made him into a pop icon for smart people. Now we've created an equally odd homage to our favorite scorekeeper. This decorative and functional 100% cotton pillow measures about 14" tall and is made in the USA. Imprinted with Carl's image on one side and the Wait. Wait Don't Tell Me
logo on the other, along with plenty of blank space for collecting the autographs of your favorite NPR stars--we've even included an "official Carl Kasell autograph pen"; a permanent black pen, ideal for decorating this oddly desirable throw pillow. Even if you never meet Carl or any of the other voices of NPR that you know and love, this pillow makes a funky and clever gift for NPR fans of any age!
