CARL KASELL AUDIO

Familiar NPR voice, Carl Kasell, navigates users through the NPR in-car app. Kasell is the official judge and scorekeeper for NPR's weekly news quiz show, Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me!


Click for clip 1: "Hi, this is Carl Kasell, I'm here to help you get the most out of your NPR experience. Your favorite stations are accessible through the number buttons on your dash. Press once to listen. Press again to discover more from that station. However, no matter how many times you press, I won't magically appear in your car. Sorry"

Click for clip 2: "Here's a neat trick: If you find a station you want to come back to, press and hold a number button of your choice to save it there. You can browse through stations using the next and previous buttons on your dash."

Click for clip 3: "Use the Topics menu to hear audio taken from all your favorite NPR programs on the topic of your choice. You’ll find my show, Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me! under the NPR Should Be Ashamed heading. Just kidding."

Click for clip 4: "Create your playlist before you get in the car, and choose Playlist from the menu to listen to your own mix of NPR programs. I assume it'll be just Wait Wait, over and over and over again. Right?"

Click for clip 5: "When you're done listening to the hourly news we'll begin playing your first favorite station. Press and hold the one button while listening to a station to mark it as your number one favorite." And when you're picking favorites, remember, I'm right here. I can see you.
