Mister Ron's Basement #1506

This week, we have been reading stories about that new-fangled invention, The Phonograph.

From Scribner's Monthly back in 1880, we find reference to what was then a two hundred year old Cyrano de Bergerac story that must have fascinated readers just discovering the phonograph. It's called 'The Phonograph in the Moon Two Centuries Ago.'


Time: approx four and a half minutes
