We feature a classic OTR episode fromThe ShadowcalledThe House That Death Built. So sit up, grab a beverage, and press that play button now.
Featured Story – The House That Death Built
Our featured story this week comes from the golden age of radio. One of the most popular series from that time wasThe Shadow. The show went on the air in August of 1930 and ran until 1954. Over the years various actors played the shadow including Bill Johnstone, Orsen Welles, and Bret Morrison who will play the part for us today. Our episode is titledThe House That Death Builtand first aired on January 25, 1948.
If you have been following the news this past week you may have heard that we have had a block of not so fun events here in the Pacific Northwest. We have had damaging winds, several large forest fires, and currently have the worst air quality in the world. My own sister had to be evacuated from her home in Molalla, Oregon. The good news is that she was able to return home after a few days. Of all of the things that have happened, I would say that the smoke is the worst and it will be with us for a bit. It has left my lungs hurting and my throat burning
With that said there will be a podcast this week. I borrowed some of your stories from Episode #370 so that I would have to record as much. Also, we have a classic radio story from The Shadow about a fake ghost and some very real murders. So, please join me this Thursday for what should be a great show.
This time onRon’s Amazing Storieswe travel to Kentucky for an encounter with a ghost girl in an abandoned air-raid bunker. Then we return to the Adolphus Hotel in Dallas Texas for another encounter with the jilted bride. How about Robin’s encounter with bigfoot on Vancouver Island. Do you see a pattern here? You should, the theme for the show isStrange Encounters. But we don’t stop there, we also have a classic story from the pen of Kurt Vonnegut and we end the show with a story from WWI about General George Patton.
Featured Story – 2Br02b
Our featured story this week comes from the creative mind of Kurt Vonnegut Jr. The story we will hear was suggested by listener Warren Silva. He thought it had a lot to say about our times and where we are going. I am not so sure about that, but I will say it is quite unique. It is titled2Br02band was first published inIf Magazinein the January 1962 edition.

Well that will remain to be seen. Right now we are in the middle of one of the strangest windstorms to hit the pacific northwest ever. It is 90 degrees outside blowing in from the east and has caused a fair amount of damage. The wind speeds have been clocked as high as 80 mph. My front and backyard look like an atomic bomb struck. Because of this, and the threat of losing power at any moment, I am not turning on the main computer systems. Without those I can’t record. So, until things calm down I am not able to work on the show other than scripting. I hope to be on time, but we shall see.

Featured Story – The Little People
Our featured story for this week is creepy. There is no other way to describe it. I remember when I first heard this a few years ago I thought that maybe it was too creepy for the show. Maybe it is? You’ll have to decide that for yourself. It tells the story of a man obsessed with getting even and in the end, gets just that. However, does getting even mean you win? Our story is titledThe Little Peopleand comes from the dark horror seriesLights Out. It first aired in May of 1937.
