Wait Wait.... It's Carl Kasell!

Carl Kasell, the official scorekeeper for the NPR News Quiz Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me anchored newscast on NPR for thirty years.  The North Carolina native's voice can also be heard on hundreds  of  answering machines across the country.  WCQS reporter Greta Johnsen spoke with Kasell recently about living in the South, waking up early to deliver the news on Morning Edition, and not taking life too seriously.
