The News – September 2018

RAS News Update - Blog Post

It’s that time again to update you on the news from the world of Ron’s Amazing Stories. I want you to know what’s up, what’s coming and what projects have died.

Dead Projects:

The response to the new show format has been nothing short of, “WOW!”. You have said that you don’t miss the old time radio, and want to hear more listeners stories. Also, the reading of classic short-stories from our past is the way to go. I concur, and while I don’t promise to kill all the Old Time Radio, we will not lean on them as our bread and butter. Also, those of you on the radio side. I hear and obey. We will not be changing the format of that show in October. It will continue to be the same as the podcast.

New Projects:

In contrast to the dead project, I am working with a few people to bring back some old time radio. Jason Dowd and I are in the beginnings of working through this idea. To that end, I have created a script and David Larsen doing the same for two brand new 2018 editions of the 5 Minute Mystery. I have not heard from David on the progress of his story, but I am in the process of casting my script this week. Stay tuned for more information on this exciting new project.

October 16The October Month Of Spooky 2018:

This is becoming pretty exciting. Not only has Jim Harold signed up, Sylvia Shults has agreed and both are on the calendar for record dates. Also, P.I.O.T. will join in the fun and I am looking at one more surprise for the fabulous event. Will one month be enough to get all this in?

The RAS Survey:

I am looking to add a sponsor to pay the costs of servers and hardware. You can help with this by taking the “Listener Survey”.  It takes about five minutes to complete and asks questions about you, but requires no personal information. This information used to show to prospective sponsors my demographics. Please take a minute of your time to do this it would really help out a lot. If you have already taken the survey. Thank you so very much!

This Week’s Podcast:

On the podcast this week we have the long-awaited Labor Day Military Salute. We have many stories sent in by you guys all about the armed forces. Including a special “A Moment In Time” with Tom Williams.
