RAS #261 – Mencken Newspaperman

Mencken NewspapermanOn Ron’s Amazing Stories we have a strange but true OTR story for you. It is the dramatized account of the early life of legendary journalist H.L. Mencken newspaperman, and is based from his own journal notes. It was produced by CBS Radio Workshop. The story is called, Bring on the Angels, and first aired on June 8th 1956, Just a few months after his death at age 76.

Also on this program, we share one of Mencken’s commentaries on Zoos , a poem he wrote and we top it all off with the RAS news and a five minute mystery. Does that sound like a pretty good show? It think so, but I might be a bit bias.
