On The Radio… update!

What fun I had last Friday speaking with Annette Rochelle Aben as her guest on Tell Me a Story, a presentation of The Magic Happens Radio Network!

I appreciated the opportunity to talk about my blog, my family, and the story I contributed to the latest book in the Chicken Soup for the Soul series, Chicken Soup for the Soul: Volunteering and Giving Back. I was especially happy to talk more about Nannie, my grandmother, and what a powerful influence she was on me and anyone she ever met.

So many kind comments came after the interview and I appreciate those more than you know. To say I was nervous is an understatement, but Annette’s professional and laid back style enabled me to take a breath and get on with what I wanted to say!

Some who missed the live radio show have asked for the archived link, so I’m attaching that here:


Thanks again for reading, listening, and the constant encouragement.

Original blog post announcing the interview:

I may be more comfortable writing than talking but talking I will do… this Friday, August 28th at 1:30 p.m. EDT when I join Annette Rochelle Aben as her guest on Tell Me a Story, a presentation of The Magic Happens Radio Network!

We’ll likely discuss a little about my blog and a story of mine included in the latest Chicken Soup for the Soul: Volunteering and Giving Back, then move on to something less interesting…me.

Below is the description provided for Friday’s show along necessary links to join in on the fun.

I hope you’ll log in and listen!

Storyshucker Stu Perkins on Tell Me a Story – no need to pinch yourself, it is actually happening  Friday, August 28th. We have tried a couple of times but the 3rd time has indeed been the charm for us here at The Magic Happens Radio Network. Visiting Stu’s blog, Storyshucker, and reading his tales is like taking a step back in time to when people took priority over popularity and family was the ‘inter-net’ where you learned everything.

Oh, and that blog address is http://www.storyshucker.wordpress.com/ so be sure to head over and catch up the archives and see what heart-warming story has been shucked of late.

Also, keep an eye open for a brand new Chicken Soup for the Soul: Volunteering and Giving Back, because Stu Perkins is one the contributing writers. We cover this and more in Friday’s Tell Me a Story, a presentation of The Magic Happens Radio Network. Find us at:

    Good going Stu! It’s so nice to hear your words in your voice. So nice to see you branch out and grow and get some recognition!

  11. Well done (and continued success).

  12. It was lovely to listen to you explain about how your stories came from your growing up in such a close knot family. I think you are right, you were lucky but not everybody can relay them the way you do. You are far too modest! Well done and keep shucking those stories 😊😊😊

  13. Great interview, thanks for providing the link! And thanks also for all the story sharing…the blogger world is the better for it!

  14. Congratulations! Sounds like fun was had by all!

  16. Looking forward to reading your story.

  19. I went through some of your writing and came across your post about being encouraged by friends to begin writing this blog, well I’m glad you did, your writing is beautiful and inspiring, thank you.

    Hey! Now you are ready for television..you got the radio portion out of the way! Good for you! My grandma was my biggest inspiration. She also was a writer but never had anything published. She would have loved blogging but it was WAY before her time.

  21. Congratulations on your radio interview and Chicken Soup piece. All very exciting. You gave an engaging, easy-going style which draws people in. Nice job.

    At last heard your words in your impressive voice.

  23. Very nice! Congratulations!
