From Clark County Commission hearings to NPR for Wayne Newton
After a daylong hearing about his plans to turn part of his Shenandoah estate into a new Las Vegas tourist attraction, Wayne Newton is in a different kind of fray today. The singer-entertainer is the special guest along with sharp-witted comedienne Paula Poundstone on the popular NPR radio show Wait Wait … Don’t Tell Me, and you can go watch the recording today at the Paris.
Wait … Wait takes a fast-paced and irreverent look at current events, including the weird. It’s a modern and hilarious twist on an old-time radio quiz show that featured games, including the always-popular “Not My Job,” which invites personalities to answer questions that are way out of their area of expertise.
Today’s rare Las Vegas recording session will air on the 550 nationwide NPR member stations this weekend. Here in Las Vegas, you can catch it Saturday at 10 a.m. and Sunday at 1 p.m.
Joining Wayne and Paula will be CBS Sunday Morning contributor Faith Salie and humorist Adam Felber from HBO’s Real Time With Bill Maher. Peter Sagal is host of the show with judge and scorekeeper Carl Kassell.
Meantime, check out Senior Editor John Katsilometes’ coverage in The Kats Report of the Clark County Commission hearings involving Newton and Shenandoah. Mr. Las Vegas told the commissioners that he’s already dropped plans for a wedding chapel at his Arabian horse ranch estate.
