It’s time for a special episode of The Apple Seed, filled with stories for you and your family, celebrating the passing from one year to the next. And what a year this has been. We’re looking forward to the hour with you. We’ll think together about the unpredictable nature of a year’s journey as we enjoy a story from Kevin Kling about riding the rails is search of great seafood. We’ll acknowledge the difficulties of the year in a snatch of a story as old as 1889, written by Jerome K. Jerome. We’ll think about the setting of goals and the making of resolutions as we hear the story of Kyle McDonald about his audacious adventure in trying to trade a single red paperclip for a house in Canada. We’ll talk about the New Year’s tune Auld Lang Syne, written by Bobby Burns and sung each year all over the English-speaking world to send the expiring year into the past. And we’ll even have a little party with Bear and his animal friends in a story from Bill Harley. On today's episode, enjoy the following: "Train" by Kevin Kling (8:31) "Goodly Knights" by Jerome K. Jerome, performed by Sam Payne (2:48) "Red Paperclip" a conversation with Kyle MacDonald (13:22) "Come on Out and Play" by Bill Harley, performed live in The Apple Seed studio (12:08) "Auld Lang Syne" by Stewart Foster (3:33)
