RAS #508 – The Boy In The Basement

On Ron’s Amazing Stories this week we pretty much dedicate the entire show to one story, The Boy In The Basement. It was written by Sylvia Shults and is in fact her true encounter with Christopher, who just happens to be a spirit. This is a rare look at the behind-the-scenes of ghost hunting and even more amazing her ongoing relationship with Chris. Something that almost never happens. Also, on the show, we have a brand new story from you guys, and of course all of the other stuff you have come to enjoy on the show. So press that play button and please come join us.

Featured Story – The Boy In The Basement

This story is featured in the book Fractured Souls: More Hauntings at the Peoria State Hospital. The book was written by our very own Sylvia Shults. The Peoria State Hospital was once the finest facility in the world for the care of the mentally ill. The asylum closed its doors in 1973, but the hilltop remains active to this day. Instead of the conversations of patients and the squeak of nurses’ shoes, the halls now echo with the beeps of K2 meters and the hiss of spirit boxes. It’s still a busy place, and for the spirits of many of its patients, it is still home.

Other Stories Include – Case of Announcer’s Delight, Lincoln on the Verge: Thirteen Days to Washington, The overprotective Ghost, and The Boy In The Basement

These Are Your Stories #27 – Parma’s Angel

Our story for this week comes from Heaven, well sort of. Mattie Pittman from Glenns Ferry, Idaho sent in this email that I call Parma’s Angel.

Hello Ron, I am displaced in time. No, I am not a time traveler I am just a person who believes that I should have been born in the 40’s. I believe that I would have flourished back then. In today’s world I always feel out of sorts, a step behind if you will. I think that’s why I was drawn to your podcast. You are the same and your work shows both a love for our past and that you are able to cope with our now. Thank you for giving me a place where I feel at home. I have a story for you. You have mentioned on the podcast that you like a good Angel story. I hope that you will find my adventure both a head scratcher and devine.

I was ten, I think, when this story took place. We were living in Parma, Idaho at the time. My parents have a small farm there where we grew corn, and raised cattle. I had a happy childhood. We attended church every sunday, and helped the poor. My mom and I would take food and supplies to migrant worker camps every spring. One day after making a delivery one of the wheels came off our truck and we plunged into a ditch. My mother was badly injured and I was left to find help. There were no cell phones on those days to call 911.

We were on a deserted backroad. I had no idea where, so I picked a direction, and began to walk. I was still in sight of our truck when a man walked up to me and asked if I needed help. He seemed to come out of nowhere. I remember that I was crying and that I just pointed to our truck and said, “My Mommy is hurt.” 

He picked me up and took me back to our truck, and then I fell asleep. I woke up in the hospital with my head on my dad’s lap. My mom had broken ribs, a concussion and a few bruises, but was okay. I came out without a scratch. From what my dad told me the man had somehow fixed the truck enough to drive them to the hospital and then disappeared.

You can believe what you want to about this story, but I know this was an angel sent to help us when we needed it the most. His face was so kind and I felt total peace in his arms.

Mattie Pittman – Glenns Ferry, Idaho

Well I believe you Mattie, furthermore you are right I do love an Angel Story. One more thing, I too think I would have done well if I had been born in the 1940’s. Thank you for your story. I think this just might have to be one of my favorites. 

-Ron

RAS #505 – And It Comes Out Here

On Ron’s Amazing Stories we have what we think is an odd show with good stuff. I have a story for you that almost made this week’s podcast impossible, a shadow story that I almost couldn’t tell you, and a classic science fiction story that claims to be about time travel, but it really isn’t. That one I will leave to your imagination. So if any of that interests you press that play button and enjoy the show!

Featured Story – And It Comes Out Here

Our featured story this time is a bit quirky to be sure. It’s nonsense in a very sensible way. At first I thought that it might be too much, but as always I remember that this is Ron’s Amazing Stories and so it fits perfectly. It comes from the pen of Lester Del Ray and first appeared in Galaxy Science Fiction Magazine in February of 1951. It is an odd tale that has an odd title which is … And It Comes Out Here.

There is one fact no sane man can quarrel with … everything has a beginning and an end.
But some men aren’t sane; thus it isn’t always so! 

Other Stories Include – A shooting at a Gas Station, Fallen Trees – A Sad Story, A Shadow’s Nightmare, and …And It Comes Out Here.
