Teasing Out A New Word

On-Air Challenge: Add a letter to create new words in a series of word teasers.

Last Week's Challenge from listener Monti Montgomery of Washington, D.C.: Name a style of music. Change the middle letter to a B, and you'll name a style of cooking. What are the style of music and the style of cooking? (There are several ways to spell the cooking style, but the answer is one of them.)

Answer: "Baroque" is the style of music, and "bar-b-que" is the cooking style.

Winner: Ken Hudson from Midlothian, Texas

Next Week's Challenge: Think of an animal whose name contains an O. Change the O to an H, and rearrange the result to name another animal. What animals are these?
