Pork is down 8 cents per pound in the past two weeks. Big savings on commercial meat over choice cuts. Buying lower quality meat will save grain. Mrs. Gannon describes how to make lower grades of meat more tender - grinding or slow cooking.
With Halloween only a week away she recommends pumpkins. Also, grapes, prunes and apples are real bargains.

Canadian smelts are low cost and should be considered for breakfast.

About Miscellaneous

Programs ranging from the 1930s to the 1970s covering a variety of cultural and political topics.

From archival broadcasts of sewer plant openings to single surviving episodes of long-defunct series, "Miscellaneous" is a catch-all for the odds and ends transferred as part of the New York Public Radio Archives Department's massive NEH-funded digitization project, launched in 2010.

Buried in this show you will find all sorts of treasures, from the 1937 dedication of the WNYC Greenpoint transmitter to the 1939 lighting of the City Hall Christmas tree and the 1964 reception for Nobel Prize recipient Dr. Martin Luther King Jr

This collection includes some unique “slice-of-life” productions that provide a telling portrait of America from the 1940s through the 1950s, such as public service announcements regarding everything from water conservation to traffic safety and juvenile delinquency and radio dramas such as "The Trouble Makers" and "Hate, Incorporated."
