Chambers Street Theatre for 11am on Sep 3rd, 2015

And once again the CD player did not work for the "Happy Trails" introduction to the show so Ruth and Mike Sullivan hum.  Today Mike and Ruth open with the second half of Twain's "Tahoe," where the entire mountain side is burned.  

Then it's on to two skits: "Beautiful Lake Tahoe" and "Advice Mailbox."  The end of the show closes with Ruth and Mike humming "Happy Trails."

Today Ruth reads the first half of the Mark Twain "Tahoe" experience.  Yes, Mark Twain was at Tahoe as he was almost everywhere else in California and Nevada.  Next week Ruth will read the second half of "Tahoe."  Well, it's one of those "to be continued" shows.

"Life on the Mississippi" was written by Mark Twain about the time before he was "a famous writer."  Here he is, just "learnin'" the river, and there's more to it than just water with a boat on it.  "Learnin'" the river required seeing in the dark when the night was dark as black cats.  Listen in for special learnin'.

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.

Chambers Street Theatre for 11am on Jul 9th, 2015

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.
