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:  A kind of Christmas hodge-podge with nothing to do about Christmas (sorry).  We will talk about a stone head, a mini Bible, and a hotel menu-none of which relate to each other or have anything to do with the holiday season but that’s what we do on Value This!

Those Were the Days


This was a sports year-as well as being the year that ended World War I.  Jack Dempsey knocked out Jess Willard in Cuba for the heavyweight championship.  Babe Ruth hit 2 home runs in a single game for the Boston Red Sox, a feat he later duplicated 72 times (but not for the Red Sox).   Jackie Robinson was born.  The Green Bay Packers were formed in Wisconsin by Curly Lambeau.  The Black Sox scandal lit up baseball when the Chicago White Sox reportedly threw the series.

The song of the year was Til We Meet Again by Henry Burr and Albert Campbell.



Saying of the Week

Don’t pray when it rains if you don’t pray when the sun shines.

Richard Nixon
