 Questions are sent to the host during the show, using the [[chat room|IRC]] channel. To avoid any peeking by the players, questions have to be sent to Mutt via personal messages. Type "/msg Mutt this is my question (answer is ##)" to message Mutt, who is also frequently in channel as "​Backstage"​ and will announce the start/end and nickname of the question drop off on the air. Questions are sent to the host during the show, using the [[chat room|IRC]] channel.

 +===== Tuninator =====
 +A cast member selects two musical numbers. Typically it is done [[Yappy Fox]], although there'​s been a tuninator crafted by [[JackRabbit]] as well.
 +
 +The selection rule for the tunes is that the same band or performer and both songs had to have made it onto the Top 40 singles chart (U.S.) at some point.
 +
 +As the songs are played, the channel audience can terminate one of the songs early ("​kill"​),​ but has to endure the other in its entirety. Killing is done by typing out the **correctly spelled full name of the artist and the song** in the channel.
 +
 +As the audience has no idea what the second song will be, killing the first one is a game of chance... will the second song be better than the first one? Or - more often - be worse?
