Chambers Street Theatre for 11am on Mar 5th, 2015

Today Ruth starts off with Mark Twain's "Letters from the Earth," Chapter "The Damned Human Race."  This chapter covers the big discussion about was earth made for man?  Then Ruth reads from Robert W. Service, "The Parson's Son."

Today Ruth reads from Mark Twain about manners, then Sakile McCoy comes into the studio and reminds Ruth about the Numbers Poem Sakile was scheduled to read.  It's all in fun and part of The Chambers Street Players.  Children will love the Numbers Poem.

The Chambers Street Players strike again with a full cast of four voices doing the KDRT Nature Show.  This week the Bird Reserve is visited and a real bird finally identified.  There is also a Mark Twain selection about the quaintness of women, and that our two main ladies are.  Nancy Streeter from the Musical Comedy world is a great addition to the CST.

We return again to Mark Twain.  He is the best.  After his death, in 1939 "Letters from the Earth" was finally to be printed for the first time.  Twain died in 1910.  Why the wait?  It's a long story you can look up, but today Ruth reads the chapter: "Extract from Eve's Autobiography."  It's all the fun you would expect from Twain.

In 1903, Mary Austin's book "The Land of Little Rain," was in print and selling very well.  Austin was born in 1868, and deserves to be read because she wrote well and movingly.  She records what she saw and keeps a record of the time and people.  Ruth reads "The Pocket Hunter" today.  This is a chapter describing the gold seeker still on the hunt.

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.

Chambers Street Theatre for 11am on Jan 15th, 2015

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.  

Chambers Street Theatre for 11am on Jan 8th, 2015

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!   

Chambers Street Theatre for 11am on Jan 1st, 2015

KDRT is still closed for the Holidays so Ruth is reading "The Christmas Pudding" again.
