Mr Greens all around, with Wed and Fr the only FJs that needed any musing at all.
"Radio-" for me, but I nearly clammed. I hear "radiology" and I think of the part of the hospital that deals with a lot more than Xrays.

Re the Roentgenology angle, I'm always put in mind of this old ditty:

The Roentgen Rays, the Roentgen Rays,
what is this craze?
The town’s ablaze
with the new phase
of X-ray’s ways.

I’m full of daze,
shock and amaze;
for nowadays
I hear they’ll gaze
thro’ cloak and gown – and even stays,
these naughty, naughty Roentgen Rays.

I missed two episodes this week, and got the 3 I saw wrong, so I've gone ahead and marked myself as all 5 wrong...

I used the "geek" smiley to indicate my response was roentgenology. In fact, when Alex chuckled at Kendra's response, I was so unaware in that moment that there was a more common word, that I thought he was going to comment on her meticulous pronunciation of the oe.

Only 2/5 and 2/3, but I'm blaming the fact that I was hopped up on cold meds all week. I've never even heard of roentgenology- am I the only one? Learned something new this week.

Just missed a perfect week in FJ. I talked myself out of the correct answer because I thought I remembered music with the song. All of that, as it turned out, was Bobby McFerrin's voice.
