A Time For Tales

Sundays @ 3pm

Carolyn Franzini is the host of "A Time For Tales," Sunday afternoons at 3pm on Morehead State Public Radio.Carolyn and her family were introduced to the power of stories while attending the National Storytelling Festival in Jonesboro, TN. She knew there was something magic about storytelling because everyone in her family loved the festival. It is rare when an event appeals to children and adults. 

Carolyn lives in Morehead with her husband Bob and they have three children, Maria, Ben and Laura. Carolyn is one of the co-founders of the Cave Run Storytelling Festival, held each September on the shores of Cave Run Lake, attracting nearly 5,000 people at the annual event that features the finest storytellers from across the country. 

"A Time For Tales" is a weekly program of stories told by professional storytellers. Each program features stories and songs that relate to selected themes including animals, school, travel, cultural diversity, special people, daughters, Biblical and holiday stories.

One of the purposes of the program is encourage everyone to value not only the stories of the professionals but also those that each one of us holds in our hearts. As Carolyn reminds us at the end of each program, "Remember..take time, tell your tales".
