Riffed from the Headlines is our weekly quiz where we choose three riffs linked by one story in the news. Guess the story that links the riffs and you could win a Day 6 tote bag and a personalized note from our very own Brent Bambury.

Last week's clues were Sir Elton John with with "Where To Now St Peter", The Mutton Birds with "Anchor Me" and The Nation - big hint there - with "29 Years."

Alice Nimmo of Camrose, Alberta, correctly guessed the headline we were looking for: Peter Mansbridge's announcement that he'll be retiring from hosting The National as of July 1st.

Congratulations Alice! A Day 6 tote bag is on its way to you.
