This week’s Storynory & Mory is a repeat episode from last year, featuring two stories from Japan. In the first, we find out how music, dance, and fun first came to the world. In the second, we hear how a brave warrior protected a dragon and became known as My Lord Bag of Rice. Look for a brand new episode next week!

A Christmas Carol continued this week, with Ebeneezer Scrooge meeting the ghost of his business partner Marley and the ghost of Christmas Past. Tune in next week on Christmas Day to hear the conclusion! Also this week, we played The Christmas Cherry Tree, which is drawn from a medieval English tale about Sir Cleges. It is a bit off-beat for modern Christmas sensibilities, but fun.
If you missed this week’s Storynory & Mory, you also missed the first installment of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol.” But don’t worry – you can still listen to the story by clicking on the link below. Then you will be all set for catching Part 2 next week, and the last part on Christmas Day. Plus, be sure to listen to the fun Katie story about her grandmother’s invisible umbrella. Enjoy!
Naida co-hosted this show, which featured the return of the Wicked Uncle whom we met a few weeks ago. Jeremy and Jemima’s parents once again make the mistake of entrusting their children with the wicked uncle for a few hours. But what could go wrong if they are just hanging out on the beach? Listen, and find out.
Here is another Rudyard Kipling “just so” story, explaining how things came to be just so. This one explains why the sea has tides. There may be some alternative explanations out there as well, but this one makes for a great story.
The Thanksgiving week show for Storynory & Mory featured a time-traveling turkey who is trying to enjoy a “delicious” meal. This story is time-traveling itself, coming from the early days of Storynory. Enjoy!
This was a very wicked show. Appropriately wicked music accompanied the Storynory tale of The Wicked Uncle, followed up by a reading of The Laidley Worm of Spindleston Heugh, a lesser known wicked stepmother story that involves a princess and a dragon. The latter story is an English folk tale from Northumbria, this version written by folklorist Joseph Jacobs.
Find out how Bertie came to be haunted by an annoying (though not very scary) ghost in this week’s Storynory. If you listened to the program on-air and were wondering about Dracula’s visit to the dentist, we don’t have a link but it is a track on Dave Rudolf’s Halloween Spooktacular if you wish to look it up. Happy trick-or-treating!
