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: Well, we don’t know it all and we prove it this week on Value This. Does Maxine have a 300 old Chinese writing desk or are we fumbling in the dark (as we usually do)? A caller has a great story about early baseball signatures and another wants to know if their copy of the Declaration of Independence is the real thing. Stranger things have happened-usually on our show!
Q: What language did the US use as code during World War II?
Q: Who published Ulysses S. Grant’s memoirs?
Those Were the Days
Remember the old Sears catalogues? Sears finally bites the dust and builds a store for their customers. What a store and a signal of changing ways to buy things. The first motel was “invented”-or named, calling itself a Motorists Hotel…or short Mo-tel. Chrysler started building luxury items on standard cars starting with the Chrysler Six. The New York (Football) Giants were added as an expansion team to the NFL. Pittsburgh won the series.
Saying of the Week
Always do sober what you said you would do drunk. That will teach you to keep your mouth shut.
