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.
