Mister Ron's Basement #1503
This week, we will be reading stories about that new-fangled invention, The Phonograph.
Our first piece is excerpted from Mark Twain's 1892 novelette, 'The American Claimant.' It has no title, so we'll call it 'The Colonel's Invention.'
Time: approx eight and a half minutes
