Happy July 4th, I hope that you and your families had a fun weekend. I have decided to take this week off from podcasting and all work related activities. But not to worry, there will be a show this Thursday. A couple of weeks ago I sent out an email to 100 random followers of the blog asking them to help me pick a show from the past to play this week. I gave them a choice of 5 of my favorites. Here is the list:
At the time of this writing over 50 have responded to the question. Which show did they pick? Tune in and find out.

Happy New Year from Ron’s Amazing Stories. This is the last week before the new year and I am taking the week off. For the first time in quite a while, we will have a replay of a past show. What we will do is have my favorite episode from 2021. Now comes the mystery part. I am not going to say here which episode I have chosen. So, you will have to tune in on Thursday to find out. I promise that you won’t be disappointed.
On this program this week we will hear the story of Ebenezer Scrooge. It should come as no surprise that this is a holiday classic, but what might be a shocker is that we have never played this tale in the ten years of Ron’s Amazing Stories. That changes this Thursday. So why are we playing A Christmas Carol? Well, on December 23rd we will be presenting a follow-up to the story with a twist that you will only be able to hear on Ron‘s Amazing Stories. Sylvia Shults and I are going to take and turn this story on its head with real-life ghost stories and much, much more. So, be here that week to hear what should be a very different look at A Christmas Carol.
A Christmas Carol is a novella by Charles Dickens, first published in London by Chapman & Hall in 1843. It recounts the story of Ebenezer Scrooge, an elderly miser who is visited by the ghost of his former business partner Jacob Marley and the spirits of Christmas Past, Present, and Yet to Come. After their visits, Scrooge is transformed into a kinder, gentler man. Published on the 19th of December, the first edition sold out by Christmas Eve, and by the end of 1844 thirteen editions had been released.
Dickens wrote the story during a period when the British were exploring and re-evaluating past Christmas traditions, including carols, and newer customs such as Christmas cards and Christmas trees. He was influenced by the experiences of his own youth and by the Christmas stories of other authors, including Washington Irving and Douglas Jerrold. Most critics reviewed the novella favorably. He went on to write four other Christmas stories in subsequent years. In 1849 he began public readings of the story, which proved so successful he undertook 127 further performances until 1870, the year of his death. A Christmas Carol has never been out of print and has been translated into several languages.
We dedicate the podcast this week to a brand new book that just hit the shelves. It is titled Days of the Dead: A Year of True Ghost Stories. The author and friend of the podcast Sylvia Shults will be here for a special Ghost Stories With Sylvia to tell us all about it.
