Another 28,000 combined Coryat.

Good game and Buzzy did give out a score check when the DDs played.

If I had seen the FJ! clue I would have avoided writing Eric's miss at first and gone straight to match Ed & Ilena which I quickly realized was a good switch to make.

Knowing the NATO alphabet is an easy study for J! players as it does come up on the show every so often. Glad it played fine in this game.

Ed will play on TV on Feb. 8th.

For a third time, the categories were recycled.

IDEAS FOR TOURISM CAMPAIGNS is from #5825 ($400 was modified to name a glacier instead of towns; $200, $800, and $1000 were new)
BROADWAY HIT ALIASES is from #7031 ($1000 was a real J!6)
SCIENTIFIC & MEDICAL ABBREV. is from #7327 ($600 was modified so as not to give GM foods a good name)
OCCUPATIONS is from #7602 ($400 was a real J!6, and similar to many other clues, such as ROCKS & MINERALS $400 in #1496; "hamadryad" was changed to "cobra" in $800)
H.P. SAUCE is H.P. from #7420 ($200 was modified to eliminate its being a video clue; $800 was a real J!6)
NATO PHONETIC ALPHABET CODE WORDS is from #7263 ($200 and $400 were new)

LITERATURE is from #7436 ($400 and $1200 are new)
PICK YOUR POISON is from #4152 ($800 is a J!6; $1600 was modified)
RHYMING FOLKS is from #5600 ($400 was a J!6)
MISCELLANY is not from any identifiable prior category and may be made up of all J!6's
WILL YOU STILL NEED "ME" and WHEN I'M 64 are from #4676 ("64" $1600 was modified away from being an audio clue)

MISCELLANY $1600, "This British make of car that James Bond enjoyed driving was co-founded by Lionel Martin", is an interesting clue, because if you guessed the other founder is a man named Aston, you'd be wrong; it was Robert Bamford. A couple of other past clues explain:

#8187, aired 2020-03-24 CAR "MA" $600: In 1914 a brand name was born when he raced cars up Aston Hill
#4203, aired 2002-12-04 & AWAY WE GO $800: The name of a "hill climb" Lionel Martin raced in, he used it in the name of the auto company he later founded

The last time they asked about Shaquille O'Neal in a RHYMINGING NAMED category, they reluctantly accepted just "Shaq". 2023 Jeopardy! Masters quarterfinal game 4. The clue presented here says that he "hosts" the podcast in the present tense, but it appears all past episodes have been wiped from distribution, except on YouTube, where a final show is from seven months ago. (A news article from a few months ago hinted it may be back.)
