Join us on WERA-LP 96.7 FM just about now (4:00pm ET) for two additions to our series Through the Looking Glass.
“The Elves and the Shoemaker”
by the Brothers Grimm, from their collection Kinder und Hausmärchen (1812)
translated by Edgar Taylor and Marian Edwardes (1823)
performed by Kim Davenport.
“The Cunning Shoemaker”
A tale from Sicily
Included in Andrew Lang’s collection The Pink Fairy Book (1897)
performed by Tom Kramer.
Dialogue editing by Maurice Malde.
Sound effects editing and final mixing by William R. Coughlan.
Post-production services provided by Tohubohu Productions, LLC
Rated AD-G for general audiences. Contains nought but whimsy in the first tale (okay, that and some nakedness), but does contain some death in the second one… but it does happen to bad people and is quite in line with fairy tale karma.
