Happy 80th, Carl!

Today, April 2, is Carl Kasell's 8oth birthday. Many happy returns!

Carl was among the students that helped start WUNC in the 1950s when the station first went on the air in Swain Hall on the UNC-Chapel Hill campus. And, while he has announced his retirement from "Wait Wait Don't Tell Me," you'll still hear his voice on the program for the next few months.

Send Carl a birthday tweet on Twitter using the hashtag #Happy80Carl. Want to leave Carl a message at Wait Wait? Call 1-888-Wait-Wait (1-888-924-8924) and select the second option.
