One of my favourite radio broadcasts…kind I enjoyed doing…was the Case of the BREAD BAG HAT.
We were at a farm auction near Marsville, Ontario, about 20 years ago when the auctioneer casually put up a few odd looking hats. Hats like something I had never seen before.
“Ladies and gentlemen these hats have been made from bread bags.”
“Plastic bread bags just like these,” and he held up some bread bags some of which were Wonder Bread and others.
“Mrs. —— (I have lost her name) hates to see things wasted so when she saw all these plastic bags going to land fill sites she used here rug making skills and began making bread bag hats.”
“Yes, right now…Do I have a bid?”
So Marjorie and I bought a few bread bag hats and the following week I turned it into a radio program. People seemed interested. Take a look at the hat.
