How well do you know Strombo?

April 29, 2012I owe you an apology if you entered the contest but got your email bounced back. I copied the rules to the original contest we ran 4 years ago but did not realize it had a closed email address included in the information. Our regular email is Please send your entry to that address only. *kicks self*  

Does anybody need some hints before you enter that contest? 

Lets go over the questions again.

Contest questions

(Please read the contest rules below before playing. Do not answer in the comment section but feel free to leave comments. Good luck!)

1) What city is George's home away from home? (hint: he just came back from there)

2) Name two CBC tv shows, not including the news or Hockey Night In Canada, that George has appeared on as himself.

3) Name the 3 guests from George's favorite tv show that have appeared on George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight. (Hint: one was in the month of April 2012, in Vancouver.)

4) George often asks the following, particularly to British guests, during rapid-fire Answerpology. What is the correct answer (and there IS a correct answer according to him ) – Stones or Beatles?

5) Which occasional guest host on George’s CBC Radio 2 Spirit of Radio show

6) Name 3 Dragons from CBC’s “Dragon’s Den” have appeared on The
George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight show?

7) How can you help George, World Food Programme Ambassador, feed
hungry people around the world (and have fun with trivia)?

8)When did the Strombo Show make its debut on Radio 2?

9)What do the red cups you see George and his guests sipping from represent?

10)What organization honored George with a membership in 2012?
