Quiz shows had been a radio staple since the early 1930s but, in the spring of 1938, producer Dan Golenpaul had a fresh idea: why not allow the much-quizzed listeners to ask questions of the experts? This simple concept became the basis for "Information Please," a long-running and winning series that brought wit, style, and good natured bantering into the homes of America for over a decade.
