Mister Ron's Basement #1627
This week we will attempt to dig up some so-far-unread George Ade stories that are Worth Reading.
We begin with a tale from his 1899 book, 'Fables In Slang.' It has the pretty self-explanatory title of 'The Fable of the New York Person Who Gave the Stage Fright to Fostoria, Ohio.'
Time: approx five and a half minutes
The Mister Ron's Basement Full Catalog can be found at:

There is a nifty interview with Mister Ron in issue #59 iProng Magazine (now known as Beatweek Magazine) which can be downloaded as a free pdf file here.
John Kelly of The Washington Post has written a lively piece about the Basement. You can read it here.
A hint to new listeners - you can use the catalogs to find stories by specific authors, or just type their name in the keyword search field. To find some of the best stories in the Basement, simply click here!
