Chambers Street Theatre for 11am on Jul 30th, 2015

Every once and a while, the "The Chambers Street Players"  come on the show with a skit.  Today the radio show: "For the Birds," crowds five performers in the about 4 feet by 6 foot KDRT studio with three mics and cooks up a fun time, or such was the intention.

Ruth has been searching through Mark Twain's works to find a section that could be as close to Twain's every day voice and thinking as possible.  In the Autobiography, Twain writes of his wife's death.  There is not the stage performer here, or the man who loved big words -- it's mostly a regular voice sharing a painful time.  Of course, it's a well written painful time so listen in and hear the legend's "close as we can get" real voice.

Today Ruth reads from Mark Twain's Autobiography again.  This week it's about Dueling and how Twain tried to get out of it.  As usual, Twain is funny.  We also hear two versions of "Happy Trails" written by Dale Evans.

And it's back to Mark Twain and his "Autobiography."  Ruth reads from Chapter 15.  Twain tells of his first heart breaks and something of the ladies who rejected him.  Twain also shares memories of some of his boyhood chums.  It's a good chapter and worth the reading or listening.

Today Ruth goes back to the beginnings of Tom Sawyer in "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer."  Mark Twain recalls some of the fun he and his friends had as boys.  We start with Chapter One with Aunt Polly trying to raise two boys, and it's not easy.  Tom is a bit full of "the Old Scratch," a past term for the Devil... but a more polite name to use for a Bible reading Aunt.

"Tom Sawyer Abroad" was written by Mark Twain latter in life.  He wrote other subject matter, but came back to Huck, Tom and Jim.  This time he borrowed from Jules Verne and put our three friends in an air balloon over the African desert.  The two sections Ruth reads from are about caravans.

Today Ruth reads from "Roughing It" by Mark Twain.  It's Spring and so Spring Fever has hit Mark Twain.  He wants a change.  He wants to go somewhere.  He wants variety.  Well, he gets it.  He's made Editor of the newspaper for a week.  Twain has no loss of words for how difficult the Editor's job is.  It's not the writing, it's the topic.  If only he had something to write about.  Listen in for some Twain fun at the paper.
