Master J presents the fifth of eight different Arts Based Game Shows that Won't Work. Proving this week's format doesn't work, and also proving - by turning up – that there is indeed a thin line between bravery and stupidity are guests: music producer King Ahmed, model Sara Pereiro, screenwriter James Ruzicka, and musical theatre actor Karen Holmes. The rules will be explained and then most likely ignored. You can play along at home, though you will need to build yourself a radio studio first. Today's game show is called, "It’s Not the Singer, It’s the Other Song". Expect singing, confusion, and for points to be given and taken away from the guests, in such a manner you might suspect some of them played for Everton Football Club. For more information visit Master J on Facebook. [Repeats Wednesday 7.30pm.]
