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: This is about as eclectic as it gets. We have a guy who “salvaged” a piece of a basketball floor in North Carolina, an Oklahoma pottery piece that neither us or an Oklahoma expert can identify, and a steamer trunk owned by Mr. Green Jeans—“old lumpy.”

Those Were the Days
This is the year of It’s a Wonderful Life, a movie flop that became a huge hit years later. It’s also when Mother Cabrini became the first American saint and the St. Louis Cardinals won the series. Jacques Heim and Louis Reard were no saints; they designed the first bikini for public consumption. Moving right along…Lionel made an electric steam train that blew real smoke. The song of the year was The Gypsy by The Ink Spots.
Saying of the Week
He who angers you conquers you.
