RAY: The answer is, it did, but not in the way you think.
RAY: And the mistake I made was that I didn't put it near, too close to the microwave or anything like that. I put the CD player down on the counter, and I put the radio on top of it.
RAY: And when you play a song that has a lot of bass, like "Iko, Iko," boom-boom...
TOM: Mmm-hmm. Yeah.
RAY: The bass was making the thing shake...
TOM: Shakes everything.
RAY: And making the CD player skip, and when I played, you know, the melodious sounds of Tish Hinojosa...
TOM: Yeah. Of course, there was no big bass sound.
RAY: No big bass sound.
TOM: No vibration.
RAY: She got no stinkin' bass in her music.
TOM: Simple case of vibration.
RAY: Simple case of vibration and the CD player. Of course, I spent the better part of four weeks figuring this out. But that's another story. So who's our winner, man?TOM: Well, the winner is Michael Levine from Portland, Oregon.
