"Bud" Guest cut his own niche with his daily program, "News from the Sunny Side of the Street" which consisted of amusing annecdotes and local color submitted by listeners and retold by Bud in a folksy, back porch style--the sort of thing that Garrison Keilor parodied so well in his "News from Lake Woebegon"--

As to "The Face on the Barroom Floor", it was not written by D'Arcy, it was written by one John Henry Titus, as the fifth Canto of his larger work, "An Ideal Soul", first published in 1872. There are a couple threads about it around here somewhere.
