MortFan, what kind of stories do you like? You might like humorous stories told by the classy-but-inebriated Lord Buckley (a few good ones on You Tube). I discovered him when I heard Jimmy Buffet stop playing his hits at a concert, settle down and... tell a long Lord Buckley story, about drinking with a bear... God's Own Drunk. And here it is live.
I think I'd love to hear stories passed down from generation to generation, to catch the zeitgeist of a particular place and time.
