GET's Dain Schult, Announces Continued Research on Radio Game Shows
GET CEO, Dain L. Schult, remarked, "This will be the catch-all for a variety of radio quiz shows that owe their inspiration to the 1930s/1940s when panel programs were devoted to the art of telling jokes. Time has come again to get America thinking and laughing.
"High-brow quiz shows were lampooned on 'It Pays to Be Ignorant,' and other memorable parodies were presented by such satirists as Spike Jones, Stan Freberg and Bob and Ray.
"There were also game shows highlighting kids (Quiz Kids) and other types for being able to identify the titles of songs or music artists.
"The idea behind these new radio show will be a continuation of the 'Theater of the Mind' concept of conjuring pictures in the listeners' mind while making these 30-minute weekend shows interesting, entertaining and rewarding with cash prizes.
"The challenge is to convert the essence of classic quiz shows from 70 years ago into programming that will be listenable and accepted by contemporary demographics. The constant onslaught of digital media is such that programming has to be in short segments to match up with existing attention spans. Having studied the current market of game shows, we came to the conclusion that it was time for history to repeat itself with entries that are mainstream.
"We're already testing various contemporary programming ideas for our proposed slate of game show offerings. So far, we've come up with the following tentative show names and ideas:
"You So Smart (SM)"; "Expert on Nothing with Opinions on Everything (SM)";
"You Don't Know Squat (SM)"; "I Know That One! (SM)" - (servicemarks of Global Entertainment Technology, Inc.)
"Fully developed, the idea is for of a variety of 30-minute programs interfacing various formats that be syndicated domestically and internationally."
