Aunt Sammy's Radio Recipes, Revised, (originally published in 1931) brings together 400 of the most popular recipes and 90 of the menus included in the Housekeeper's Chats. Immediately with the start of this radio service for women in 1926 came the demand for the recipes. Aunt Sammy herself was a character created by the U. S. Department of Agriculture Bureau of Home Economics and the Radio Service to be the 'wife' of Uncle Sam. Many women across the country 'played' Aunt Sammy at local radio stations when the show aired. By 1932 the radio show was on 194 stations, but Aunt Sammy faded out during the Great Depression. After 1934 the name 'Aunt Sammy' was no longer used. The radio show was renamed "Homemaker Chat" and that show was discontinued in 1946.
