On today's episode of The Apple Seed, we bring you stories of friendship, but with a musical twist. Music is something that brings us together, and it can often help us tell those stories that are near and dear to us. We hope that the stories you hear today help remind you of songs and moments that you love. (4:37) "Bear's Party" by Bill Harley: Bill Harley tells a musical tale with our studio audience about a bear who just wants to have a party with his friends. When it looks like things won't turn out, things turn in a new direction. No matter what all of his friends said, Bear was always optimistic. His wise words can teach us a lesson when things don't seem to be working out the way we hoped they would. "You never know what might happen". (22:25) Radio Family Journal by Sam Payne: Sam shares a memory about summer nights and dancing in empty parking lots. Sometimes the perfect way to end a summer day is to drive to the middle of nowhere, turn up the music, and dance in the car headlights. Sam had many of these moments, and it inspired him to write a song about it. Join Sam in reminiscing about those good old summer nights. (31:08) Original Audio Drama "Silk and Swenson": Join us for another original Apple Seed audio drama! This old western story tells of characters Hector Silk and Phoebe Swenson, who are enemies at best. Through a series of unlikely events, and lots of music and singing, will these two finally see eye to eye? We're excited to bring you this western musical tale of "Silk and Swenson".
