Mister Ron's Basement #586

A Special Holiday Treat!

Robert J. Burdette delivered his lecture 'The Rise and Fall of the Mustache' from 1877 to packed houses for well over thirty years. It is almost totally forgotten today, and while much of it is terribly outdated, most of it is timeless, and worth hearing today. It will make you laugh, and cry.

This is, without a doubt, the absolute longest story we have read, or ever will read, here in the Basement. It is worth listening to. Your comments are appreciated.

Time: approx One Hour and Thirty-Two minutes
