Imagine you're lying on the ground in the middle of a redwood forest at night, bundled up in your blankets and looking up at the stars. Then you hear a voice floating in the darkness -- someone is telling a story, one of many you'll hear that night. The Henry Miller Memorial Library at Big Sur features radio stories every Sunday as part of its "Big Sur Sound and Story" weekly series, where radio producers like the Kitchen Sisters play some of their favorite pieces in the hushed darkness of Mother Nature's "auditorium."
