On the question about the tuba and how low in frequency can it go; upon further checking there appears to be different types of tuba's. So let's make the question, "How low can a bass tuba go in hertz?"
The microphone referred to as the "Fat Boy" was a vintage Shure microphone. Think post(age)
The question about hot dog sales: they sell more prepared hot dogs than all the major league baseball AND football stadiums combined. It's not 7 Eleven or any other convenience stores.

BONUS QUESTION TO QUIZ CHALLENGE:

The Bonus Question this time was inspired by a recent shopping trip in which I noticed that 2 different stores I went in, had Christmas decorations out already on their shelves. The last time I did a bonus question, it was a Double Bonus and the names we were looking for were Bob Dylan & Frank Zappa. This time, the names of two famous musical artists will be given in advance and the question involves finding the common denominator between two very different people and two very different songs.

Bonus Question: Mel Torme wrote and sang the most performed Christmas tune ever called The Christmas Song (Chestnuts roasting On An Open Fire). The famous folk and rock artist Neil Young wrote a popular song called Cowgirl In The Sand. Two very different people and songs for sure: what is the connection between these two songs ? It's something major, not how many letters are in the titles (both 16 by the way), or anything like that. This isn't about verses or words.You will either have heard about this or not.

Bonus ? #2. There is something really major that both singers names have in common. What is it ?

Bonus ? #3. In what way is Neil Young & the traditional in home Christmas Tree display connected ?

Today's Bonus Question Clues:

Clue To Bonus ? #1: Close the windows.

Clue To Bonus ? #2: An A and a period would make them 2 totally different things.

Q: What do you call a guitarist that breaks up with his girlfriend ?

A: Homeless.

Most people who try the quiz challenge, like to keep their answers to themselves and don't bother posting their answers. If someone does get the Bonus Question or any questions & decides to share it, do not explain why that is your answer(s). Looking stuff up on the net is cheating. Answers forthcoming on Wednesday. More clues coming up tomorrow.

Extra clue to Bonus Question #2.

The New York Yankees were eliminated by those awesome Red Sox last night in a thriller. It's down to 4 teams now. The Yankees have a tie in with Bonus Question #2. It could help you figure it out.

The following is not an official question but, its something that I thought of, that no one on any sports talk broadcast or telecast has mentioned. In last years National League & American League Championship Series, at the first pitch of both series, something happened that never before happened in the entire history of major league baseball. What is it ?

All answers to all the questions will be given tonight around 10 pm eastern time.

ANSWERS TO TRIVIA CHALLENGE QUIZ:

1. A piccolo has the highest frequency range. It goes up to near 4,000 hertz.

2. It varies, but 14 to 20 guitar frets are not unusual.

3. A standard bass tuba goes down to between 43 and 44 hertz.

4. The practical joke loving drummer was Keith Moon of The Who.

5. The now famous Fat Boy microphone became highly associated with Elvis Presley. I believe it was pictured on one of the "Elvis" U.S. postage stamps.

6. The number of keys on a grand piano varies between 88 and 108 on some custom models. Older grand pianos sometimes had a few less than 88 keys.

7. C. Catch Bull At Four was a Cat Stevens album.

8. Drum sticks are usually made of hickory wood.

9. Joe Walsh was the guitarist.

10. It was Jackie Gleason in a Honeymooners episode.

11. Costco sells more prepared on bun hot dogs at their in store food court each year than all the MLB and NFL stadiums combined.

Bonus Question #1: High Temperature. Mel Torme on a day of blistering heat during one of the worst heat waves, thought that writing a Christmas song might psychologically make him feel cooler. Cowgirl In The Sand was written by Neil Young with a high "internal" temperature ; he had the flu and had an extremely high temperature of way over 100 degrees. Maybe he should have written a Christmas song too.

Bonus Question #2 : Both of their respective initials are the initials of US states. MT & NY.

Bonus Question #3 : Neil Young, years ago, bought the Lionel Train Company. A long time, traditional under the Christmas Tree fixture.

The Question for fun about last years AL & NL baseball championship series. Answer: It was the first time that both the AL & NL championship series was represented by the 4 teams from the 4 most populous cities in the US. New York, L.A., Chicago and Houston.

Tomorrow some explanations on the Bonus Questions and other question clues.

SUMMARY OF SOME OF THE QUIZ CLUES:

The Bonus question clues as usual, were fun this time. In case no one noticed I usually make the clues easier as it gets closer to Answer Day. Better to keep you in suspense at least for a while that way.

Painless-eggs
Painless -aches. Painless eggs referred to the most common comedic phrase about it being hot outside, " hot enough to fry an egg on the sidewalk." It could have also meant boiled eggs, which are cooked without a pan and hot water could have conjured up an image of a therapeutic jacuzzi. So anyone guessing that they wrote those songs sitting in a hot jacuzzi. Nice try but incorrect.

Shut the windows. That's something we do in both cold weather ( if one has the flu) and blistering heat (if one has air conditioning).

Add an A and a period and it becomes something different: Adding an A to Neil Youngs initials spells out the word any and adding a period after the initials of Mel Torme is the word Mt. (mountain abbreviated).

Reserved For Kings And Angels refers to the traditional under the Christmas tree display which traditionally was a nativity scene. A white cotton sheet is usually placed underneath to look like snow. I thought about giving the words "snow angel" but that might have given it away. Reserved For Kings referred to the 3 wise men, a usual part of the nativity scene. The nativity scene in more modern times is often substituted for by a train layout (Lionel was the most popular early choice); the Lionel company was bought by Neil Young, and now the most popular choice under the tree has become lighted porceilan houses and buildings.

Spell Right changed pan-less eggs to painless eggs. The proof reader in me did not catch that till now. In the last clue "Mercurial" was actually 2 clues in one, hinting at a thermometer and also referring directly to the unimaginatively hot planet.
