About: Cal Stewart (Uncle Josh Weathersby)

Turtle Talk: Cal Stewart recorded this monologue in mid 1919. about six months before he died in December 1919. Edison issued this performance in 1921.

Edison advertising in 1920 states: " The Chautauqua movement is a mighty one for bringing education and amusement into the lives of those who live in the country. Theaters and 'opery' houses do not bother Chautauquans, for they give their programs just as well under tent as anywhere else. A show of this kind comes to 'Punkin Center' and Uncle Josh. of course, subscribes for tickets. His impressions are given on this record."

Tech Tidbits:
Edison Diamond Discs, 50844-R was transferred using a 3.7 mil full conical stylus in a Stanton 500 cartridge at 80 rpm. Turtle used Cool Edit and DC-ART 32 software to reduce noise.
