When You’ve Been Gone

Ron's Amazing StoriesYou may have noticed that the blog has been missed a few times the last few weeks. That was because of personal issues where I had to make some time-based choices. To me, it was a no brainer. Take care of family, produce the show or write a blog. I’ll bet you can guess the order I choose.

While I don’t promise that from now on there will be a blog each week I will always try to make that happen.

-Ron

BTW: Yes I am aware that this is not the best blog I could have written. It was one of those weeks!x

RAS #375 – An Encounter While Biking

On Ron’s Amazing Stories we have a work of fiction sent in by Jose Munoz about a bike ride gone strange. We hear the final chapter of Second Variety by Philip K. Dick, and we have two ghost stories from you guys. Tom Williams is back with another Growing Up he calls Weekends and Old Cars. So grab a coffee and press that play button.

Featured Story – Second Variety

So far in our story, we know that the Americans have created self-replicating robots to fight the Russians for them. Also, that these robots have flipped the script and began making humanoid versions of themselves to fool their enemies. The Russians have taken many losses and are ready to work with the Americans to end the war. Is it too late? In this final chapter, we learn the truth.

The story is called Second Variety and was suggested to me by listener Mark Lopez a few months ago. It was first published in Space Science Fiction in the May of 1953 issue.

The News – April 2019

The numbers for February and March are in and we have seen a decrease in downloads. The individual show numbers seem unchanged, so I am looking into this and hope that it is just because of the shorter month. You can help the show by telling all of your friends to give Ron’s Amazing Stories a try. If you have any ideas on this subject or have suggestions to make the show better, please let me know. I am open to just about anything!

February (2019) = Down ~100 downloads per show
March (2019) = Down ~200 Downloads per show

UFO Update: We have received two more stories for the upcoming podcast. My Brother Jim has shocked me with a story that happened to him in 1957. Why was I shocked? I was not alive at the time and this is the first time I have ever heard this one. Crazy!  Jose Munoz has sent in a UFO/Loss Time Story for us. It is a chilling tale that ends in a Starbucks. I will keep you posted on my progress for this special podcast, but I do want more of your UFO stories. Also, if you have any suggestions for a UFO expert please let me know!
