It’s WAR on The Kiosk next Saturday…

At 11am on Saturday 11th December 2010 on Phantom 105.2 – It’s WAR as teams representing these two venerable publications lock horns in The Kiosk Quiz of the Year.

It promises to be a great competition – not only for the teams but for a lucky Kiosk listener. We have a great prize for one listener who correctly predicts the winner of the quiz: a €200 gift voucher from EASONS – The perfect place for all your gifts this Christmas. See the bottom of this post for more details.

Team Ticket vs Team Day & Night

“We’re going to MURDER them. And then laugh. Out loud. And point our fingers at them. And laugh again.” – Jim Carroll

“Jim who? He’ll be Off the Record after this.” – John Meagher

Jim Carroll vs. John Meagher

Sinéad Gleeson vs. Nialler9

Lauren Murphy vs. Eamon Sweeney

Phantom 105.2’s arts and culture show The Kiosk will host a special edition Christmas pop quiz battle on Saturday, December 11th, between The Ticket — the entertainment magazine published weekly by The Irish Times — and Day & Night, the entertainment magazine published on Fridays by The Irish Independent.

Bracing themselves for battle from Day & Night will be John Meagher (captain), Eamon Sweeney and Nialler9.

Risking their reputations from The Ticket will be Jim Carroll (captain), Sinead Gleeson and Lauren Murphy.

Armed only with their wits and their terribly short-term journalist memories, our gladiators will be answering questions like the following:

‘Which famous literary figure did Bridget Jones interrupt at a party to ask for directions to the toilet?’

‘Which Irish poet praised Eminem for creating ‘a sense of what was possible’?’

‘What is Hunter S Thompson’s lyrical connection with Brandon Flowers?’ ****

In the words of one revved-up contestant, armed with piles of NME back-issues and a slightly frantic look: “This is WAR!”

“We’re hugely looking forward to this special edition of The Kiosk,” said Nadine O’Regan, the presenter of The Kiosk. “Both teams will be putting their reputations on the line — all of them are extremely well-known and respected names in their field – so you can be guaranteed there’ll be drama.”

****Answer A: In the book: Julian Barnes. In the film: Salman Rushdie

**** Answer B: Seamus Heaney

**** Answer C: His quote became the basis of Brandon Flower’s most misunderstood lyric: ‘Are we human… or are we dancer?”

We also have a great competition running this week on TWITTER (@nadineoregan) or EMAIL  to win a €200 gift voucher from EASONS – The perfect place for all your gifts this Christmas

All we want you to do is tell us which team, Team Ticket or Team Day & Night will win the Kiosk quiz. Answers MUST be with us before 11.30am on Saturday 11th December to qualify.

One winner will be selected randomly from the correct answers.
