Chambers Street Theatre for 11:00am on Feb 9th, 2017

Today we are all the way up to Chapter 12 in "Roughing It" by Mark Twain.  The stage coach is on the road west again and there are rain storms, 14 foot drops, and rivers to cross.  Twain and his brother are going through the Rocky Mountains that has an old Medicene Trail found by the Indians.  It's the South Pass and it's more a valley in the mountains that a scary trail.  Listen in for all the details of the South Pass.

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.

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.
