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 have a special guest, a fast talking auctioneer (Randolph Holford) who you can understand since we slowed the show to 78RPM. (What’s a 78RPM?)
Q: Where were most cast iron mechanical banks sold?
Q: What other American ceramic company introduced a line of colorful dinnerware in 1936 in 5 colors? (Hint: they had to remove the red in 1943 because the chemicals used in coloring were needed by the war effort.)
Those Were the Days
Less than 30 years ago, but it seems like 100. Troll dolls appeared (who cares) and the Adams Family Pinball Machine was introduced (top selling of all time). Not much else except in the news we had the case of the Long Island Lolita. Amy Fisher shot her lover’s (Joey Buttafucco) wife in the face. Mary Jo recovered and promptly divorced her husband. It was a slow year for news.
Saying of the Week
