On Ron’s Amazing Stories this week we have tales ranging from a somber Gunsmoke to a listener’s tale about a rogue baby monitor. We throw in a controversial short story and a poem for Christmas. All of which should make you say, cool!
OTR Story – The Trojan War
Our OTR story comes from the early years of the classic western series, Gunsmoke. During the first years of the show, the stories told were more solemn. The writers wanted to present what it was really like in those dark western towns. The west was largely lawless and towns truly did have to protect themselves from many threats. Our story gives a view into this as we follow a gang that comes to Dodge City to start a crime spree. The tale is whimsically called, The Trojan and first aired on CBS radio February 28, 1953.
