Band members then had to figure out the riddle and play the song (the answer is "Where Oh Where Has My Little Dog Gone?). Listeners received $10 per question that was used on the air. If they could stump the musician, i.e. "Beat the Band, they received $20 and a box of Kix. Musicians who missed the answer had to "feed the kitty, meaning they had to toss half-dollars onto the bass drum (something audience members loved to hear). The musician who scored the most points then got to take home the kitty.The second season of Beat the Band came during the war years and was hosted by "The Incomparable Hildegarde."

It began as a summer replacement for The Red Skelton Show, but ended up lasting over a year. Sponsored by Raleigh Cigarettes, the format was the same except that radio listeners won $25 and a pack of Raleighs for beating the band. Also, instead of "feeding the kitty with half-dollars, musicians tossed packs of Raleighs on the bass drum to be sent to soldiers overseas.
