This week (March 18th, 2023 @ 10am) is Episode 4 of River Reads, we focus on Numbers in Fairy tales. That is, any stories that have a number in their title. In particular, the Grimm's Fairy Tales: 1)The Three Children of Fortune; 2) The Twelve Brothers; 3) The Wolf and the Seven Goats; and 4) The Four Accomplished Bothers.

Wilde does a call out to authors seeking to have their works perhaps featured on River Reads. If interested, please contact Smithers Community Radio.

Though pretty tame, this week's program contains mature situations/themes and is intended for an older youth audience. Viewer discretion is advised. Many of the stories have been rated PGD for Possible Gore and/or Death (“gore” is subjective) and GGD for Gross Gore and/or Death (River’s favorite kind of stories).

River Reads is a program where those of all ages can escape into bedtime stories and fairy tales; both new and old, but mostly old and at times macabre, or silly, or even perhaps a little confusing as written in old english, and then there’s those stories whose premises or message has perhaps not aged as well over the years, let’s face it you can’t be too picky when you’re dependent upon material available to you through creative commons.
