You’ll hear the winner’s names announced and the week’s quiz question, along with all the other ingredients you have grown accustomed to: your letters and essays, On This Day, quirky facts and news, interviews, and great music … so be sure and tune in every Saturday.

This week’s quiz answer: In March, Susan Owensby asked which three parties came out on top in the first round of local (departmental) elections held on 21 March here in France.

Congratulations, winners!
