Chambers Street Theatre for 11am on Jan 29th, 2015

And we're back with Mark Twain and his book "Roughing It."  Today Ruth reads the chapter about Grandfather's Ram, and a more silly story with regional accents can not be found.  Hope you enjoy this Twain story with accents written for all time to be pronounced correctly.  We've lost so many of these charming ways of speaking.  Twain gives a good record of the time.

Once again,  the Performing Company of KDRT presents a "live" presentation of "Advice Mailbox" and "Courthouse."  With Ruth in the studio is Bryce Parker and Alex Silva Sadder playing all the characters in the two shows.  We had a great time!  Hope you enjoy it, too.

Today Ruth reads from "The Land of Little Rain" by Mary Austin.  The secction read is "The Scavengers."  Austin was writing in 1903 so she was one of the early "Save the Earth" writers.

KDRT is open again so Ruth is reading "Curanderos" by Arnold A. Rojas, and part of "Scavengers" by Mary Austin.  Both these selections are from "California Heartland" by Editors Gerald W. Haslam and James D. Houston.  Because "Curanderos" had a humorous side Ruth included the Stan Freberg "St. George and the Dragonet."  Happy New Year and remember to laugh!

Finally a break in the BIG STORM and a bit of sun same out.  Ruth rode her bike to the station and read her story from  her book, "The Weight of Gold": THE CHRISTMAS PUDDING.  It's Winter in the Gold Country and miners are in tents watching the rain, when Ben thinks of his Mother's Christmas Pudding.  He starts making the Pudding and other miners join in so Christmas Eve is a joyous celebration with Ohhs and Ahhs.

The BIG STORM hit Davis and Ruth looked out the window and decided not to ride her bike in the predicted 60 mile and hour wind and rain.  She called in and a repeat show was aired.  

Chambers Street Theatre for 11am on Dec 4th, 2014

Ruth reads from the first of several sections of Mark Twain's Civil War memories.  This section is from the beginning of the War during great confusion before the great blood bath.  There is still some humor in Missouri.
