On-Air Challenge: A game of categories based on the word APRIL. For each category, name something in it starting with each of the letters A-P-R-I-L. For example, if the category were "Chemical Elements," you might say Argon, Platinum, Radium, Iron, and Lead. Any answer that works is OK, and you can give the answers in any order.

1. Five-Letter Girls' Names

2. Parts of a Car

3. Foreign Rivers

4. Terms in Geometry

5. Words Ending in "X"

Last week's challenge: Name two things found in a kitchen — one starting with G, the other starting with K. If you have the right ones, you can rearrange the letters to name two other things, one of them found in the kitchen starting with F, the other one probably found elsewhere in the house starting with K. What things are these?

Puzzle answer: "knife" and "griddle" turns into "fridge" and "kindle"
Puzzle winner: Kris Sandine of New York City

Next week's challenge: This week's challenge comes from listener David Edelheit of Oyster Bay, N.Y. Think of four 4-letter proper names that are all anagrams of each other. Two of them are first names — one male and one female. The other two are well-known geographical names. What names are these?
