Last week's challenge
Start with the words FEDERAL TAXES. Change one letter to an L and you can rearrange the result to spell a five-letter word for places where tires are often seen and a seven-letter word for what you sometimes do to tires. What are the words?
Answer: If you change the R to an L, you can spell AXELS and DEFLATE.

On-air questions: OK Mike, next week brings the NFL Draft. It all begins Thursday in Kansas City, with Carolina, then Houston, then Arizona getting the first three picks. Bad news for Dolphins fans: Miami forfeited its first-round pick to settle a tampering case. At any rate, today’s show from me, Mr. Irrelevant, is all about the N-F-L. I’ll give you a category, you draft a correct answer that starts with each letter.

1. Colleges that have won an NCAA basketball championship, either men’s or women’s: N
2. Tony Award for Best Musical winners: F
3. U.S. presidents: L
4. U.S. state capitals: L
5. REM studio albums: N, F, L

Extra credit
1. Late night TV hosts: L
