This time onRon’s Amazing Storiesit is all about the past (where we have been), the present (where we are ), and the future (Stuff coming your way).
The Past – I am a basketball fan and not to brag but I went to my first game with my brother when I was ten years old. One of my favorite players was Brian Grant. Brain played 12 years in the NBA as a power forward and was the heart and soul of the 1997-2000 Portland Trail Blazers. We have my interview with him that I recorded on February 7, 2012.
The Present –Stories are our present, but do all stories take part in the here and now. Not always. All of the stories for this show form a theme of sorts. They have time in common. Specifically lost time or lost in time. You will hear three brand new listener’s stories.
The Future –Jason Dowd joins me to talk about what has been going on with him, shares a story and we talk about a new segment coming your way in late June or early July. Tune in to find out more and take Jason’s doll challenge. If you dare.
About Jason Dowd –Art is a way of life for Jason. From an early age, he created various forms of artwork using various mediums, but none was as profound to him for his own work than photography. He finds inspiration wherever he goes because he keeps his eyes open for things that will make the perfect embellishment for a photo or looks for the story that inspires him to tell it to the world as only he can.
What do you have to look forward to? Well Jason Dowd will join us to talk about the future of the Horror Express. We have three themed stories from you guys. One of which is about a young man who visits a truck stop that isn’t there! We replay one of my personal favorite interviews from the past and much more. Please join me this week, you won’t regret it!
