Storytime

There used to be a program on PBS, back in the days when televisions had knobs and up to five or six channels to choose from, called “Gather ‘Round.”  It’s genius was in its simplicity.  A man tells a story to a group of children and while he speaks an artist sketches a scene or two from the tale.  A tale and the visions it inspired.

I was very fond of this program as a wee child.  It may have been where I first found the hunger for good stories and storytellers.  I’ve never seen another show like that since those carefree days of childhood, and maybe it’s the kid in me that longs to see it back, but I think a program like that should be on again.
