Today we bring you a full hour of stories from Georgia storyteller Andy Offutt Irwin, all recorded live in the Apple Seed Studio. It's an hour full of zany fun, quick wit, and what critics call his Silly Putty voice. But we hope you’ll take away even more: sweet observations about lifetime relationships between generations that will have you thinking about some of the people who are important to you. (2:30) "Polyphemus" is a musical, comical take on the ancient story of Odysseus, who among his adventures, was held captive by the horrible Cyclops. (15:22) "Book Every Saturday for a Funeral" is one of Andy's popular tales about his fictional Aunt Marguerite. In this story she makes a long drive to visit Joy, a lifelong friend who may not have many visits left. (34:14) Host Sam Payne shares an original song called “Songs About You” about being far from the people you love. (40:21) Young Andy finds a perfect (and potentially dangerous) present for a fellow Cub Scout in the story "Secret Santa."
