Friday's Contest. Win a Prize!

Ithaca Blog's contest this weekend, sponsored by Small World Music, pertains both to music and to apples, in honor of Ithaca's Apple Harvest Festival, today and tomorrow.

The apple used as the logo for Apple Records, the Beatles' record company, is a popular variety in America today, but had not yet been introduced to America when Apple Records started, in 1968. The variety was developed in Australia, introduced to England in 1935, and to the U.S. in 1972. What is it?

The prizes are $10 gift certificates to Small World Music. We award one prize from among the right answers, randomly selected, and one from the wrong answers, to reward not just expertise, but effort!

Send answers to Small World Music, at Or phone it in, at 256-0428.

Thanks, & good luck!
