NTN Encore Question of September 18th, 2004
Answers: 1. Boston Pops 2. Mormon Tabernacle Choir 3. Benny Goodman Orchestra 4. New York Philharmonic 5. The Rolling Stones I wasn't playing this week. I was at a soccer awards banquet. I was wondering how difficult the Encore would be this week. At most it will be four weeks before I'm here on a regular basis, all going well. Thanks to GIRLIE on the Playback message board for the recap. Encore Question: Their debut performance occurred on June 1, 1934: page down further for correct answer... Correct Answer:...3. Benny Goodman Orchestra I would have only been able to get rid of one choice as the Rolling Stones were in there as a novelty answer. Yeah we get it, they are old however none of them were even born in 1934. Benny Goodman would have been worth a chance because it was from that time until the end of Second World War that they were at their most popular. [from my music book, Boston Pops was founded in 1885, nothing about the other groups was listed]. I MIGHT have gone for this but paged too fast through the recap before I could think about it. I would have gotten only four in the OnBeat round because I knew early in the week that I wouldn't be playing so didn't read up on music news this week. 20000 points before the Encore question would have been difficult.
