Hundreds of Free mp3 Stories at the American Storyteller Radio Journal Site

Over the past few years, Nelson Lauver’s nationally syndicated radio feature “The American Storyteller Radio Journal” has established a dedicated U.S. listener base.  Fans refer to his stories as unique, timeless and “great radio” and have likened his style to that of Charles Kuralt and Mark Twain.

Now, the complete library of these 4-minute radio stories is available free online at www.TheAmericanStoryteller.com.  

Visitors to the site can search the approximately 300 story library by keyword or over 20 topics -- then listen to, download, link to, or send the story to a friend.   Each 4-minute, mp3 story is broadcast quality and available in high speed or dial-up versions.   

There is also a free “story of the week” feature whereby visitors can sign up to automatically receive a new story link every Wednesday.

While the average listener demographic is 24 to 60 years of age, stories are suitable for all ages.  Subjects range from hometown America to interesting incidents and individuals, real people profiles, American History, etc.    

According to Executive Producer Jane George, “The online mp3 stories have become quite popular with a varied audience -- including ipod users hungry for quality content; casual listeners, educators, and even individuals studying English as a second language.”

But perhaps it is the compelling story behind the storyteller that engages listeners even more.  At age 29 Nelson Lauver, then a parking lot line painter, overcame illiteracy caused by undiagnosed dyslexia and educators who had deemed him “unteachable.”

Nelson learned to read and write, and didn’t stop there.  Today at age 43 he’s an entrepreneur, syndicated broadcast journalist, narrator, literacy advocate, humorist and international keynote speaker.

As a speaker, Nelson has been called upon by colleges, organizations, corporate groups – and even NASA – to share his insights and experience on goal setting, personal achievement and human potential.
