Mister Ron's Basement http://misterron.libsyn.com/ & the Blog http://misterronsbasement.blogspot.com/ & a Full Catalog indexing all of Mister Ron's Basement http://ronevry.com/Mister_Rons_Full_Catalog.html which is still a work in progress but marvelously useful none the less. Mister Ron's Basement is devoted to presenting the finest works of public domain humor. Every week or so Mister Ron himself Ron Evry reads a classic of humorous literature.
I'm making this sound dry and it really isn't. Mister Ron's Basement for 22 JAN. 2009 is
Eugene Field's - 'In Praise of Pie.'

I'D like to weave a pretty rhyme
To send my Daily News.
What shall I do ? In vain I woo

The too-exacting Muse;
In vain I coax the tyrant minx,

And this the reason why :
She will not sing a plaguy thing,
Because I 've eaten pie.

A pretty pass it is, indeed,

That I have reached at last,
If I, in spite of appetite,

Must fast, and fast, and fast!
The one dear boon I am denied

Is that for which I sigh.
Take all the rest that men hold best,

But leave, oh, leave me pie!


Mister Ron opens with the great 78 rpm of "Make yourself a happiness pie" does a quick in tro of the work then a reading and close with music. What else do ya need?
Check out the index. yer bound to find something of interest.
And now for your listening pleasure.

Make Yourself A Happiness Pie Ray Noble & The New Mayfair Dance Orchestra. Vocals by Al Bowlly

This is the version Mister Ron used.

A recent Mr. ron fave ov mine is Max Adeler's 'An Old Fogy.' http://slapcast.com/users/revry/7263
Quote:
Mister Ron's Basement #1392
When Mark Twain was accused of plagiarizing Max Adeler's 'The Fortunate Island' for his novel 'A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court' he responded by saying that he read Adeler's story, liked it, and thought there was no resemblance. However, the Adeler story he compared to his own that appeared in the 1882 "Fortunate Island' book was a different one -- 'An Old Fogy' -- one of the first Time Travel stories ever written.

For tonight's Saturday Night Special story we present 'An Old Fogy,' the tale of an old man (written in 1882) who wished to return to simpler times of sixty years previously. The old man gets his wish.

If you could imagine a 'Twilight Zone episode written in 1882, you might have this brilliant tale.
Great Stuff
If you like the Max Adeler (Charles Heber Clark) story, and have a hankerin fer a bigger bite try chewing on Fortunate Island (1880) a Serialized Novelette http://ronevry.com/Fortunate_Island_Serialized.html

It began in March of 2005 and currently has over 1350 Episodes.
While some may not find my voice or delivery style to their tastes, there is no denying that the many humorous stories by mostly forgotten authors that I have rescued from oblivion are restoring a vital American Treasure to the world.

Most people’s view of early American humor begins and ends with Mark Twain or O Henry. Yet authors such as Fanny Fern, Max Adeler, George Ade, Edgar Wilson (“Bill”) Nye, M. Quad, George W. Peck, Philander Doesticks, and Stanley Huntley, are highly significant in the development of the uniquely American attitude of not taking everything seriously.

To the world at large, American humor, represented by film, television, comic books and strips, and stand-up comedians, is the pinnacle of comedy. A good portion of our entertainment exports (always in the very top ranks of our Gross National Product) is descending from the works of these mostly forgotten writers, who were once household names.

Utilizing researching techniques that simply weren’t available a few years ago, I am uncovering the stories that our ancestors used to laugh at, and have discovered that a great deal of it is still extremely funny today. The podcasts, in recent months, have been fully indexed, and can be accessed at: http://ronevry.com/Mister_Rons_Full_Catalog.html

W. L. Alden had a long career writing wacky stories, but he especially had a knack for churning out tales about cats! This week we are exploring some of his feline-itious output.
'The Zadoc Pine Labor Union' wich was on Mister Ron's Basement #1417 Sat, Aug 15 2009 can be heard right here http://media.libsyn.com/media/misterron/Mister_Rons_Basement8-15-09.mp3
