"Once upon a time" was a good old time. Before movies, TV, video and computer games, families and friends would sit on the porch or in front of a fire sharing stories and songs.

You might hear about the trickster Brer Rabbit, or the lessons of An Aesop fable, or a personal story of childhood, or an African folktale. Diane's programs are spontaneous like in the old days, so that you never know what you might hear until
