National Jukebox - 1901 Recording About Bicycling

Uncle Josh Weathersby on a bicycle, performed by Cal Stewart, January 8, 1901 - a two minute, 41 second recording from a 78 record of a then-humorist spoofing cycling. Part of the Library of Congress' new "National Jukebox" that streams audio recordings from the late 19th and early 20th century. There are a fair number of "spoken word" performances and not just music.
