The Great Depression pushed many to great risk

Grin-N-Bearit, recording an episode of their KETR Program on the Texas A&M University-Commerce Main Stage

In the grips of the Depression, times were very tough for the country in 1931. Farmers were offered a fraction of the worth for their goods, and some found no other option to make ends meet than home-brewed white lightning.

In the first episode of this new Grin-N-Bearit series, you'll find Jessie Blalock and his hard working family desperate to make ends meet, and hear the lengths they will go to in order to keep food on the table.

Hear The Grin-N-Bearit Show on the first Wednesday of each month at 7pm during Notably Texan on KETR, with a rebroadcast the following Saturday at 7.
