[quote name=\'zachhoran\' date=\'Oct 17 2003, 08:05 PM\'] [quote name=\'sshuffield70\' date=\'Oct 17 2003, 07:57 PM\'] Zach, it's spelled SEGER!!! :) :) [/quote]
I know it's Seger, but I was just doing a little joke about Bob Zager's similarly sounding name :) [/quote]
 Who's Bob Zager?

A Google Search revealed the only Bob Zager is/was a mechanical engineering student at Washington University (not to be confused with The George Washington University, University of Washington, or Washington State University).

Did you mean Denny Zager, who teamed up with Rick Evans for one of the worst songs of the 1960s counterculture revolution?  :puke:

Or did you mean Bob Saget?  :)

As far as we're concerned, the ONLY Bob Zager is member 156 of our little operation.  BTW, Bob happens to be extremely knowledgeable about game shows, he's a huge fan of Dick Clark and he has one of the largest game show home game collections in the country.

Despite being from Michigan, I have not, however, known him to rock with the Silver Bullet Band.

Whose authorization do I need to begin construction on an Evans-and-Zager room?  I'll also contribute The 5th Dimension's "Aquarius/Let the Sun Shine In"; that gets on my nerves.

 I'm sorry, we're holding up permits on all new construction for the next half-millenium or so.  The next available date is in the year 2525.

What about Art James' "Who What Where" which was also the title of a 1977-1986 "Joker's Wild" catagory?

In a 1980 episode, Jack Barry even mentioned that then-announcer Art James and then-producer Ron Greenberg were involved with The Who, What or Where Game when that came up as one of the categories.

I know towards the tail-end of the run. "Classic Concentration" started calling the end game "Winners Circle"

Whos Whats Wheres, to be exact--invariably introed by Barry as "based on the show of the same name" or some variation.  I assume Ronnie Greenberg always fell over in laughter.

was Clearence Sale once the name of a game show?  If it was, Clearance Sale is also the game on TPiR that copys Easy as 123
