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:    We didn’t plan it this way (we’re not that smart), but this show is X rated.  Then again, maybe all our shows are X rated.  One caller has a racy Marilyn Monroe photo not fit for public consumption and another (a female truck driver on the road in Nebraska) called Auntie has a rare Hustler magazine.  We just couldn’t make this stuff up!
