He is a storyteller trying to teach people in the US that there are other countries on the planet. He tells stories from other countries.

The Cinderella Stories.

The secret of how Balticon sucks in panelists.

The story of the ugly statue in New York. Is it Science Fiction or Fantasy.

Bill also does the Maryland Farie Festival and lectures at Maryland University on using story telling to raise listening skills. He loves teaching children from pre-school to middle school.

Discussions about saying no to drugs and what teens might think about the differences between illeagle drugs and prescription drugs.

Doing the Easter egg hunt at the White House. Stiffed by the Clinton administration.

The democrats election poem. (Charles Gannon enters the room)

He also did Voice of America.

How to speak all foreign languages.

Strange accents. The five pound cruise joke.

Music by Tempest
This week’s track is Raggle Taggle Gypsy. I thought a good story told in song would be a fine complement to Bill Mayhew’s

This’s week’s track is provided by Tempest. Permission to use this track was provided by Dan Hanley at Magna Carta Records. I’m a real Tempest freak. I love their music and go out to all their shows when they’re in the Washington/Baltimore metro area. They put on
one hell of a show live. Albums by Tempest are available at Amazon.com and many other places.
