Chat and a story with Storyteller Jon Spelman

Something New - Stories in Focus on the Internet.
Today the program is a Chat and a Story with storyteller, Jon Spelman. click here and ENJOY.
This program is shown as it is currently being aired Wednesday evenings on Montgomery Municipal Cable TV.

The Stories in Focus series began in March 2009 on Montgomery Municipal Cable (Channel 16) Kensington, MD. Each month as Host/Producer of Stories in Focus I interview a guest storyteller. We chat about storytelling, which includes the guest's career. The centerpiece for the program is a story - told by the guest teller.

Channel 16 has a narrow reach - Montgomery County, Maryland. From from outset the I wanted to share the programs with you - the wider audience. Now, having crashed through the technical problems, I can.

I will post a new story each month.

Hear more of Jon Spelman March 20 - if you are in the DC Metro area. Come to the March 20 Official Opening Concert of Telling Moments Theater for a wonderful evening of storytelling with Jon Spelman.
