I have (had) an old stapler. I don't use it much, maybe once a month at most. But I like to have one around. This old girl was getting worse and worse... I tried to use it the other day and it wouldn't even push a staple thru 2 sheets of paper. So it finally pissed me off enough that I ordered a new one from Amazon. You know what I bought OF COURSE.
wait for it...
Interesting nugget... I googled Grand Ole Opry to make sure I spelled it right (Thought there was an apostrophe in there somewhere but no...)
Anyways... First link I trusted was Wiki. In the first paragraph it said the GOO was started in 1925! KDKA started in late 1920 (Pres. Harding election results.) GOO was only 4+ years after that! I would have guessed mid 30's maybe but 1925... that's REALLY in radio's infancy!
In 1925 I would guess there were MAYBE a couple hundred radios TOTAL within a 50 mile radius of Nashville. Well before the TVA, most of the region didn't even have electricity.
