Mister Ron's Basement #1630
This week we have dug up some so-far-unread George Ade stories that are Worth Reading.
Ever have trouble speaking before an audience? Here's an 1899 tale of a minister who comes up with a novel solution to just that problem in 'The Fable of The Preacher Who Flew His Kite, But Not Because He Wished to Do So.'
Time: approx seven 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!
