Week Three Of Spooky

The Paranormal Investigations & Observation TeamOn the podcast this week we continue the Month Of Spooky with the Paranormal Investigations & Observation Team (P.I.O.T.). The team was founded on March 2nd, 2011, and what started as a weekend hobby has since turned into a passion. P.I.O.T. has undergone many investigations including abandoned business properties, residential homes, and historic landmarks. They have dedicated themselves to the paranormal world not just for the thrills of hunting the unknown, but to discover the real answers through critical observation and bold interaction.

Also on the show, we will be presenting a short story from ten-year-old Eva, and Jason Dowd makes an appearance to update us on The Horror Express and tells us a ghost story! I want to thank all of you that have supported the Month Of Spooky 2018. Your stories have been the reason for the best year ever

Thank You,

– Ron

Week Two Of Spooky!

Ghost Hunter - Silvia ShultsOn the podcast this week we continue the Month Of Spooky with Sylvia Shults. For those of you who are not familiar with this will be her 5th visit to the show for Ghost Stories with Sylvia. These shows have become one of my favorites and look forward to it each year! Why? It is because it becomes a contest of seeing who can come up with the best ghost story. Of Course, nobody ever wins, but we sure have a lot of fun trying. Included on the show we will be presenting another story from my brother Jim. He has called this one The Encounter and you might want to buckle your seatbelts because it’s downright terrifying. Also, there are two more stories from you guys, and I do have to say that you have really come through with the goods this year. We’ve gotten some of the best stories in the eight years of the podcast for this Month Of Spooky.

Thank you for all of your support,

– Ron

The News – October 2018

Ghost Hunter - Silvia ShultsWelcome to the 8th annual Month of Spooky. We are going to have a whole lot of fun this year and when it is all said and done I think you will agree. Sylvia Shults is back for Volume V of Ghost Stories with Sylvia. Jim Harold - PodcasterJim Harold returns for the eighth year to talk about all things creepy in Old Time Horror with Jim Harold. We have newcomer Schuler Johnson visiting to tell us about ghost hunting and his group the Paranormal Investigations & Observations Team. You might remember a story they sent in a few weeks back.  Add to it all, the stories you have sent in to and I think you see why are in for a trick-or-treat or two this year.  I want to thank all of you that sent in stories this year. It is our best showing yet. Thank you for everything you do for the podcast and these amazing stories.

Anything You Can Do  and Halloween

Not everyone was happy about the podcast. I received this note from Jo L  on Facebook.

I am so tired of hearing “Anything You Can Do”.  As soon as it starts I turn RAS off. Typically I love your show but I found the story and reading to be most tedious and monotone. Can’t wait for it to end. – Jo L.

Jo L. you are the first that has said that they don’t care for Anything You Can Do. I have made the commitment to complete the book so we will do that. There are seven chapters to go and I can guarantee it is going to get exciting. The big fight starts soon between the Bart and the Nipe and I highly recommend the end of this novel. Most people have responded favorably to the story and Mark’s reading of it. I urge you to stick with it and hear the end of the story.

However! I will say that we’ll not be playing new chapters of it during The Month Of Spooky.  It will return in November and we will finish the story of the Bart and his battle with the space alien. For those of you who can’t wait for more of the novel. I will be updating the Anything You Can Do homepage each week with new chapters introduced by Mark Nelson himself. Also, on a side note, after we finish the book, Mark Nelson will be coming on the show to talk about it. I am excited about that!  

Thank you Jo L. for your comment I do really appreciate it!

The News – September 2018

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. You can listen to this podcast on Thursday at Ron’s Amazing Stories, download it from iTunes, stream it on Stitcher Radio or on the mobile version of Spotify. Do you prefer the radio? We are heard every Sunday Night at 8:00 PM (PST) on AMFM247.COM. Check your local listing or find the station closest to you at this link.

Changes To The Blog

Update For JanuaryStarting this week there will be some changes made to the weekly blog. Not to worry the main content won’t be changing in fact I hope to expand it with contributions by you or our guests. The biggest change is that I won’t be providing a calendar any more. This was becoming just link to old podcasts. It will be replaced by upcoming events. This will include events not only for the podcast, but appearances I make on other shows. I did not implement it this week, but look for it next time.

I received this Email from David Larsen: I looked for the podcast survey on my mobile device, however I couldn’t find the link. On further inspection I looked on my computer, and low and behold there it was on the sidebar. So, I think if you had another hyperlink to it that could be accessed from a mobile device you might get a more people to take it – David.

Thank you for that David! You are quite right about that. It is there on your phone, but you have to scroll through every episode on the site to get to it. That is over 200 hundred shows and that will not do. So starting this week you will see a link in the blog and show notes for the survey in the credits section. My apologies for that.

-Ron
