Mister Ron's Basement #1000 (Part Three)
EPISODE #1000 -- 'The Stanley Huntley Story' is so BIG that we have to present it in THREE PARTS!
Today, we offer Part Three, featuring a detailed look at Huntley's humorous writing for the Brooklyn Eagle, the invention of 'Spoopendyke' and a array of funny stories. We also are presenting Huntley's 1880 Brooklyn Eagle interview with Reverend Henry Ward Beecher, a truly fascinating newspaper piece. The episode wraps up with a look at Florence Huntley's life and writing after Stanley's death.
Time: approx ONE HOUR and seven minutes
We will be taking a hiatus for about a week, and then we will be back with lots more of the funniest stories from the Public Domain...
