The Answer: Ken Jennings


Recommended Posts

Who was seen singing along at the Raspberries reunion concert in New York a couple of years ago?

I recently read an article in the local paper about Ken Jennings (remember, the lady who ended his win streak is from Ventura). I was pretty sure Ken had to have a website- he's still very popular and is releasing a new book on trivia. I decided to take a chance and ask Ken about that Raspberries concert. Here's what he had to say about it:


Yeah, I like the Raspberries. I'm pretty big on 70s power pop in general and have those UK reissues of all four albums.

I happened to be in NYC for something that weekend (book tour, maybe?) and saw a listing for the reunion show at House of Blues. Got a ticket on the spur of the moment, just on a whim. And I'm glad I did--they all sounded great.

Thanks for the ericcarmen.com invite...I will definitely use that for any future Raspberries-chatting needs.




Pretty cool, huh? :lol: Kirk.

Great post, Kirk! We spotted Ken in the crowd that night and since I hadn't missed a night of his fantastic run on Jeopardy, I had to meet him.

Teasingly, I said, "I'm Alex Trebeck, and the answer is 'Raspberries.'" He made a cute show of looking up at the ceiling like he was really thinking hard for a bit and then answered, "What is the best band on the planet?"

I LOVED IT!!! Just had to hug him! Then we found out he was a fan. What a cool night!
