We're getting a jump on April Fool's Day with an hour of stories about pranks, hoaxes, and general mischief. (4:11) West Virginia storyteller Bil Lepp and his buddy Skeeter have a mischievous plan to rig a competition at a summer camp in "Vacation Bible School," recorded live in the Apple Seed Studio. (26:23) Host Sam Payne talks about a high school prank on a double date that didn't go off as planned in today's entry in the Radio Family Journal.
