Summary
This is a recording of Alden Aaroe discussing a controvery that began when a listener offered him some free bamboo for his yard. Listeners immediately started contacting Aaroe, alerting him to the insidious evil of bamboo and the damage it can do to a person's yard, plants and driveway. Another listener wrote in to tell him, conversely, that the United States government was supporting bamboo as the new crop for southern farmers. Aaroe also briefly talks about Mother's Day and does a voice advertisement for Markow's Florist. The recording begins with an advertisement for the 1958 University of Richmond-WRVA Radio Scholarship Quiz
