I have to say the response to last week’s podcast was… Amazing. I thank all of you for the warm well wishes to Tom and I am happy that you liked the new segment. I plan to polish it up and make it part of upcoming shows.
Here are some updates for you!
The Horror Express
For those of you that have been asking about, The Horror Express. I have confirmed with Jason and we will record the new episode on Friday (2/23). Jason and I appreciate your patience in this and we are excited to get back to work on the H.E. project.
Do you listen to Spotify? Did you know that Ron’s Amazing Stories can be heard on the Spotify mobile app? It’s true and I need your help. If you use Spotify will you help out the show and follow us? Just search for Ron’s Amazing Stories and click on that follow button. Do you have friends that use the app, tell them about the show and maybe they will follow us too. Thank you for listening no matter how you do it.
You may have noticed that Ron’s Amazing Stories has a sponsor, sort of. I was asked to promote a new product called Playapod. It is a podcast player that syncs your podcasts to the cloud so you can pick up any device and go. It is a free download from the Google Play Store, Apple App Store, and Amazon Appstore. I took a look at it on my android phone and I like how it’s put together. It has a small footprint and is easy to use. I want to thank PlayApod for asking me to promote them. If you want to know more go to playapod.com

On this edition of the blog, we talk about a couple of new features that have been added to the home website at ronsamazingstories.com.
The Archive – There is now a link to the RAS Archive Site. This is a page on the Internet Archive that contains all of the shows from 2011 through the end of 2012 (with a few from early 2013 tossed in). From here you can stream, download and view all of the early podcasts from Ron’s Amazing Stories. This ends a long-term project to complete the archive. There are a lot of good things there and all you have to do is click on “archives” on the side panel to find them.
The Bold and The Blog – A new TAB is available called “Blog”. Right now, this simply guides you to the current blog site. In the future, I plan to close the WordPress site and incorporate the podcast and blog in one place. It will be easier for me to maintain and for you find. However, when it goes live it will change how you subscribe to the blog. I will give out more information on that before the change is made. Why the wait? I am waiting for my WordPress subscription to run out.
So, head on over to ronsamazingstories.com, check out these two changes and let me know what you think.
This Week’s Podcast:
On the podcast this week we are chalked full of mystery. We debut a brand new detective series, tackle a mystery from 1969 and hear a Sherlock Holmes story told only to the folks at Edinburgh University. You can listen to this podcast on Thursday at Ron’s Amazing Stories, download it from iTunes, stream it on TuneIn Radio or on the mobile version of Spotify. Do you prefer radio? We are heard every Saturday night at 6pm EST. Check your local listing or find the station closest to you at this link.

Spotify – Ron’s Amazing Stories will soon to be available on the mobile version of Spotify! This is something I tried and failed to get from the beginning. I did all of the paperwork and am now waiting for the podcast to show up on the list. So, if you are Spotify user, on your phone or tablet, be sure to favorite us and rate us. This is a big step forward!
IOS App Store Link or Google Play Link
The Blog – Do you read the blog? My numbers suggest that maybe fifty of you do. The blog is an extension to the show often with more information about what you are hearing or what is coming up. It is weekly and you can follow it on WordPress, Facebook or have an email sent to you when it is updated.
Stories – I have had a shortage stories of late, which is not unusual for the holiday season. You can send me your stories, stories ideas or request a call back at ronsmazingstories.com and click on the contact tab. Your stories are what makes this… Ron’s Amazing Stories!
Upcoming events – We have some cool stuff coming to the show. Jason and I are preparing The Horror Express #20! This show will cover UFO’s and Jason is going to talk about the recent find in Peru that has everyone rethinking the alien part of ufology! My Brother Jim is preparing to tell us all about his strange visit to an ancient Scottish chapel, and I am working on scheduling interviews with some upcoming authors. It just keeps getting better!

I am excited to say that new Horror Express publishes this Thursday (November 2, 2017). On the train ride, Jason and Ron are back together, which is good because the hellhounds missed Jason a lot. We are going to share a real-life story about a marionette’s hold on a Horror Express listener! Also, we have a scary tale about pipe organs as told by Vincent Price. We will finish the show with questions and comments from you guys, so please tune in this Thursday.
