Gobble, gobble. The 10th annual Turkey Calling Show is an old-fashioned radio drama that includes audience participation and a turkey pardon. The family event is happening Wednesday at noon in the Seuss Room at UC San Diego's Geisel Library.

Scott Paulson, the show's creator and host said its a chance for kids to be loud in an area often reserved for silence.

"There's a long tradition of using turkey calls for hunting purposes but we're using it as an opportunity to be noisy in the library," Paulson said. "It's just one of those unusual Seussean things we try to do here."

Paulson, who also hosts a twice monthly radio drama on, joins KPBS Midday Edition Monday to make some noise.
