Says You!

Join host Barry Nolan and his panelists for a live performance of Says You!, the “game of words” and popular public radio show, in Champaign-Urbana. The live show—which will be taped for later broadcast—will take place at 7 p.m. Saturday, February 4, 2017, in the Lincoln Hall Auditorium (702 S. Wright St., Urbana) on the University of Illinois campus.

It will feature special local guests and a local musical act.

You can make a gift to WILL to get premium seats for the live taping, including an invitation to a special reception event with Nolan and the panelists at 5:30 pm the night of the show. Or you can get regular tickets directly through Says You! on their website very soon.

Airing at 10 am Sundays on WILL-AM 580, Says You! is played by two teams in front of live, enthusiastic audiences. For almost two decades, Says You! has offered listeners some of the best quips, quotes and questions public radio has to offer.

Dozens of game categories include Cryptic Puns; Definitions and Derivations; What’s the Difference; and Odd Man Out. And at the core of the game are the bluffing rounds, in which three definitions are given for a mystery word, only one of which is the actual meaning.
