    I'm not sure if they still do this segment but does anyone else remember this from WZPL? 99.5

    Dave Smiley used to have listeners call in and honk their horn. He was somehow able to tell them what make, model, year, and even color based on their horn honking.

    How was this grift performed?

    Were the "listeners" just plants? They offered a $100 cash prize if he couldn't guess it and I'd never ever heard someone actually get it. I heard the show every day while I was growing up; my mother would listen to his show while taking me to school - or from school, I don't remember which.

    I don't see any other way this would be possible. If someone else can figure out a way the scam worked feel free to chime in and honk your horn - I promise I'll guess wrong.
