...And now, from deep inside the Magic Pumpkin...

Our story so far.....
Information provided by Bob Moke:
"The Story Lady" was part of a huge...and hugely funny...syndicated package of short radio bits originating in LA during the 60s by Mel Blanc Productions, a group which included Mel Blanc, Gary Owens, Joanie Gerber, Lennie Weinrib, Arte Johnson and Byron Kane.
Along with The Story Lady, there was a continuing soap opera "Return To PaperPlates," plus bogus movie trailers, TV shows, commercials, and just plain silliness. The Steve Allen/Gary Owens play-on-words type of humor is quite evident.

The Story Lady
with Joan Gerber and Byron Kane

The music box theme of The Story Lady: the music box tune is Papageno's introductory aria from Mozart's opera "The Magic Flute."
Please note that these are not necessarily in original broadcast order
