National Public Radio personalities are like the Wizard of Oz: a disembodied voice behind an unknowable curtain of secrecy.

Given their shared preoccupation with kidnapping, family dysfunction and untimely death, it's sort of surprising that Lifetime and Megadeth don't share more fans. Can you tell the difference between the titles of Lifetime movies and Megadeth songs?

How well do you know the many appearances of Pee-wee and Paul?
