Question of the Day: How Is That Pronounced?

by Corny O'Connell

We're still thinking about the Academy Awards when John Travolta mangled the name of Idina Menzel who sang the Oscar-winning song "Let It Go."

Or worse, you mispronounced it for years until finally learning how. List them in the comments below and we'll spin a set after 9am, hopefully with the correct pronunciations.

Here's what we played:

Bon Iver "For Emma"

INXS "Mystify"
