The Better Half was a couples game show on Mutual radio that pitted
husbands and wives against each other to find out who was "the better
half."  The questions were fairly easy and about American life in general
with topics such as household items, color associations, and travel. Tiny
Ruffner hosted the program during its entire run until January 19, 1949.
