Interesting. I never saw the supermarkets when I lived in the Albany area in the 1950s, but I do
remember seeing, in the kitchen of the school cafeteria, a large can of applesauce bearing the
brand name "WGY." It also bore a stylized picture of a radio station labelled "WGY" with a tower
sending out signals. I wondered why a radio station was putting out its own brand of applesauce.
This would seem to explain it.
