Each Friday, Ithaca Blog's affiliate, Small World Music, will sponsor a contest for Ithaca Blog readers. It will consist of a simple question, and a prize for a randomly-selected correct answer, as well as one for a randomly-selected wrong answer. (We believe in rewarding not just expertise, but effort, too!)
Today's question: Besides their profession, what do these notable musicians have in common: Ray Charles, John Coltrane, Ani Difranco, and Bruce Springsteen?
Hint: you might get the answer on Weekend Edition on NPR tomorrow, if you listen closely.
Hint #2: their mothers all have something in common, too.
The prize is a gift certificate for $10 from Small World Music.
Submit your answer (one per person, please) directly to this Ithaca Blog posting, or to Small World Music's e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org), or by calling Small World Music, 256-0428.
Winners will be selected on Tuesday.
Thanks, and good luck!
