Welcome to The Apple Seed! Some time filled with stories for you and your family. Since 2013 we’ve been bringing you tall tales, personal tales, fairy tales, historical tales and more. All kinds of tales, from all kinds of tellers. There are times for all of us in which life doesn’t bring us quite what we expect. Sometimes that’s a good thing, like an unanticipated snow day or a present from grandma. At other times, it’s less desirable, like the sudden loss of a loved one or an unexpected illness. Life is a series of the unexpected. When life’s surprises come our way, all we can do is react the best way we know how. In today’s stories, you’ll get to hear about different kinds of people experiencing the unexpected. On today’s episode, enjoy the following: “Johnny Appleseed” by Jim Weiss from American Tall Tales (2:46) Radio Family Journal: "Four Cavities" by Sam Payne (17:30) The Daily Mix: "It's a Wonderful Life" with Andy Offutt Irwin (23:50) “The Elf of Springtime” by Odds Bodkin from With A Twinkle in Your Eye (32:39) “Accident” by Kevin Kling from Wonderlure!
