Value This - The weekly Radio Appraisal show with Brian Kathenes and Leon Castner

Brian and Leon, will blow your mind with their witty and thorough knowledge of everything that you can put a price tag on. Listen every week on your local public radio station.

Synopsis: Special guest star Mel Smith talks about a unique collectible-miniature art.  She’s our friend from Nags Head, VA and knows all about these unique very small pieces-which often bring very big prices.  We also have lined up the 4th and 5th grades from the Hope Elementary School who want to know if a work in their schoolroom is worth anything.  We’ll give them some tips to find out and let you listen in on the conversation.

There are Places I Remember:

Barre, Vermont

No, we haven’t been there but we’ve been close.  Vermont is the granite state and Barre is the capitol of granite.  The Hope Cemetery in Barre has examples of all kinds of granite-from a queen size bed to a huge soccer ball.  It’s probably the most unusual cemetery in the US.


Saying of the Week
