Saturday Word Play- They Came from the CEEB!



In the 6 lines below you'll find the syllables of 10 writers who, at one time or another, worked for the CBC. The first syllable in his/her name is in the first line, the second in the second line and so on. How many can you find? Bonus points for naming a book they've written.

As always, feel free to do all ten at home but only answer one in the comment section below. That way 9 others can play along.

OK - maybe it's because I am a constant CBC listener (always on in my house, and in my car), but I found this one to be easy. Lets go with one of my favourite broadcasters (who is still to be found on Radio 2),

BILL RICH-ARD-SON
Who wrote, among other things, Bachelor Brothers' Bed and Breakfast, Bachelor Brothers' Bed and Breakfast Pillow Book, and Bachelor Brothers' Bedside Companion (all of which I recently re-read my way through).

Couldn't miss this one
REX MUR-PHY
He can string so many words in one sentence that it leaves me breathless.

Stuart McLean - assorted Vinyl Cafe books.
(I was looking for Linden MacIntyre - The Bishop's Man first, but great game this week anyway!)

Kate: I'm not much of a radio person but I tune in on occasion.

Gypsysmom: And he's a Newfoundlander.

Raidergirl: Oddly, it was Linden who inspired this week's post. Then when I sat down to create it, he slipped my mind entirely!

I could probably get all the rest too (for the first time in my life) cause it the Ceebs innit?
