Chambers Street Theatre for 11:00am on Jan 19th, 2017

It's so nice to be back on air.  We have been having some pretty big storms but it's been needed water.  The five year drought was tooooo long.  Well, today's reading is from "Roughing It" by Mark Twain, Chapters 9 and 10.  If you ever wondered about the Pony Express, here's your chance to hear the story from men "on the ground."  That's what Twain said about himself...he was there for the Gold and Silver strikes, and the Pony Express, and all the rest of the 1800's.

Thanks to all the folk I meet in town who recognize my voice and say how much they like my show. I like every one of you and we always have a nice chat about Mark Twain. You all are the best of people.

Here's our offering for your collection.  It's an ode to our kitty Katie ...


A wonderfully warm Katie Cat

would come running whenever you sat.

She'd rumble and purr,

and had wonderful fur 

to cuddle and nuzzle and pat.
