Answer: Chairman Mao.

Winner: David Slobodin of Asheville, North Carolina.

Next week's challenge: The challenge comes from listener Daniel Grossman of New York City. Name a major American company. Drop its first and last letters, and the remaining letters in order will name a famous singer — both first and last names. What company is it?
