These Are Your Stories #5 – Branch

On the blog this time we have one of my favorite stories from podcasts past. This email comes from Branch a listener from Midland, Texas. I don’t know what it is about Texas, but either you guys really love the show or there is a whole lot of paranormal stuff going on down there. 

Here is Branch’s Email:

Ron,

I am a cowboy of sorts and by that I mean of a sort. I work for a community gun range as an instructor and gunsmith. We take safety very seriously at our range, but no matter how careful you are accidents happen. A young man had just bought his pistol and did not quite understand the rules of the range. He fired his pistol downrange before the all clear was sounded. Unfortunately, I was clearing out targets at the time and was shot through my side. The last thing I remember was falling to the ground thinking that this was it.

They got me to the hospital in time but I had lost a lot of blood and it was touch and go for several days. One night I woke up and standing at the end of my bed was a cowboy dressed completely in black. His face was hidden and all I could see was his red eyes. It didn’t speak, but I knew why he was there. He was waiting for me. This happened every night for the next few days. Once he was right beside me with arm stretched out as if to take me away. I remember waking and telling him, “I’m not ready”.

The next night I awoke again and expected to see the ugly cowhand hanging over me like a vulture waiting for its dinner. To my surprise I saw my father standing there with a serene smile on his face. He took my hand and told me that I was going to be okay. His touch shot through me like a pistol and the warmth I felt I knew I could believe him. I went back to a comfortable sleep.

The next morning, I woke up feeling really good. I thought about the night before and then it hit me. My father has been dead for ten years. Do I know what really happened? Nope, but I made a full recovery and am now back at work. The guy who shot me? He was charged and also banned from the club. 

Your Friend,

Branch 

What can you say about a story like that? Incredible and amazing. I have heard tales like this before and each time they still send chills down my spine.

RAS #474 – Savannah Georgia

On Ron’s Amazing Stories we have something pretty special. Jason Dowd is back and we take a journey with him to the city of Savannah, GA. You will not believe the ghost stories he experienced while staying at the Planter’s Inn. Also on the show are two listener tales that fall directly into the category of the head scratcher. A postman tries to make a delivery and is halted by a ghost, and a shadow on the wall defies any logic. We end the show with a brand new Johnny Is It True, alien edition.

About Jason Dowd – From an early age, Jason has loved his art. Over the years he has used various mediums, but none was more profound to him than photography. He finds inspiration wherever he goes because he keeps his eyes open for things that will make the perfect photo. Jason lives in the great state of Florida and has been a part of Ron’s Amazing Stories since the beginning. He first appeared on the podcast in episode #78 where he introduced us to his book A Haunted Soul: A True Story of One Man’s Struggle with the Paranormal. If that wasn’t enough Jason is our radio producer. He has been putting the podcast out on the radio for the last 5 years! Jason is also the CEO and founder of Gladys Goodies.

Update – These Are Your Stories

Rons Picture

I have had to take a little break from this project to work on some other things. Rest assured that this is not the end of it. In fact two people have graciously signed on to help with its beginnings. A name change is probable. The two top suggestions are: Your Amazing Stories and Your Stories Live.  If you have a suggestion or want to take part in the project follow this LINK and sign up.

Thank you,

Ron

RAS #473 – The Stowaway

On Ron’s Amazing Stories we continue with a year in review from 2020. In part two we conclude with August through December. We have listener stories about bigfoot, pumpkinhead and even a ghost that likes to start fires. There is a classic Sci-Fi story called The Stowaway that is nothing short of amazing. So press that play button and enjoy the show.

Featured Story – The Stowaway

We have an amazing story suggested by German Finley and read for us by Maddie Ruth. The story is about the first rocket to the moon and one man’s attempt to stowaway aboard it. It first appeared in the If – Worlds of Science Fiction, March of 1952. He stole a ride to the Moon in search of glory, but found a far different destiny.

The Stories In Rear View – Part 2

Rons Picture

After the year we have had, and if we are all being honest, do we really want to review it? I for one do not! However, there is something worth our time. This past year has seen more stories than ever submitted to the show. We have had more great adventures, amazing encounters and some strangeness that can’t be explained. There is no way we can listen to every story that was sent in. However, what we can do is pick one story for each month. On the podcast last week we began our year in review. We presented the best listener stories from January to July of 2020. What I have for this week’s podcast is the rest of the story with August through December.  

Also, on the show is an incredible reading of a story called The Stowaway. You will have to hear this one to appreciate it. He stole a ride to the moon in search of glory, but found a far different destiny.

See you this Thursday,

-Ron
