Mister Ron's Basement #1522
SUNDAY SALAD features TWO pieces today -- the first one is an unsigned news story from 1880 about a vicious escaped monkey, with a strong dose of facetiousness and quotes from Poe -- all trademark Huntley elements, making us suspect that it was indeed written by Stanley Huntley, but we will never be able to prove it. It is entitled 'A Thrilling Story Revealed.'
Listener comments on this story are especially welcomed.
The second piece is a poem by Huntley from that same issue of the Brooklyn Eagle about an enterprising preacher called 'Not A Happy Lot.'
Time: approx five and a half minutes
