Mister Ron's Basement #17

Perhaps the longest story so far in Mister Ron's Basement -- 'Solander's Radio Tomb' by Ellis Parker Butler.

NOTE: We have attempted to clean up the sound quality in this episode, but it really is hopeless. You may not be able to stand listening to this one -- which is too bad, because it is a funny story.

Time: approx twenty-three minutes
