20.2 "Bucky & Becky" from our “Laugh, Clown, Laugh" show performed live at The Slipper Room in Manhattan on 9/25/16

This story about the old-time brother and sister comedy duo Becky & Bucky Beans is several things. It's a radio documentary that spans from the slapstick era of silent films to the golden age of old-time radio. It's funny and it's sad. It's also a ghost story.

This episode is a special collaboration with our friends at the WCZY public radio show and podcast "Audio File Search." Extra special thanks to host Alex Severn for joining us at The Slipper Room and sharing this fascinating story.
