PAUL: We'll get back to my hospital tapes in a

How are you feeling ... like it's your lucky day ?
Got a hunch you gotta act on ?
Then it must be time to play, What's That Noise From
Newfoundland, the game show to end all game shows !
More modern now than ever before !
From the wealth of noise available on our verdant isle,
we have chosen this, as our mystery sound.
Engineer and quizmaster Hollis Duffett, let it out one
more time !
SFX: THE NOISE
Ah, a thing of beauty is a joy forever, and I feel that
way about sound.
So, into the giant mail bag I reach, trolling for the
correct answer ... and here's an entry from ... the United
States of America, our partner in crime to the south.
Quite some time since we had a letter from the US.
Anyway, the contest entry is from the Newman family,
Jeffrey, Harriet and Jacob, of Fairport, New York -
just on the outskirts of Rochester, I believe. They
must listen to our shortwave broadcast. The Newmans
write: "We think the latest noise from Newfoundland
is a sea plane landing near the shore."
Well, Newmans, an inventive reply, but you must scrutinize
our clue more closely, because it's not a sea plane landing
near the shore.
But the Newmans are not the only ones invited to scour their
minds identifying our noise. We are an equal-opportunity
contest. Get your pen and paper ready, I'll give you our
mailing addresses right after Hollis Duffett gives you the
