The News – November 2018

Spooky 2018

A Freaky GraphI should start out with just how successful the Month Of Spooky was for 2018. Based on the numbers and the comments that I received this was our most successful event to date. They were up over last years event from about 8700 per episode to about 9400. That is an 8% increase over last year! These are the internet numbers and don’t reflect those who listen on the radio. Also, we received a total of 13 stories from you guys for the month. This is an all-time record for a single month in the history of the podcast. Thank you so much for listening and supporting the show.

The Radio Show

Many of you have been asking for clarification on the changing of the podcast and what it means to the radio show. I have talked this over with Jason, who produces the radio show, and things are not going to change. We will continue to have the same content on both platforms. However, there is a caveat: The radio show is limited to 55 minutes. If a podcast runs over that limit I will have to edit the radio side to fit the time requirement. (Example: This past month the Old Time Horror episode with Jim Harold had a total running time of 1:06. I was forced to edit that down. Not to worry though I used a little editing trick and sped up parts of the program. You may have noticed that in some places the action was a bit faster. Mostly on the OTR program.  Pretty tricky huh!)

Looking forward to Christmas

I am again asking for your stories.  This time Jason and I are planning a Christmas spirits program and want your spooky Christmas stories.  So, please if you have such a thing please get in contact with me at this link.  Thank you!

Wrap-Up The Spooky

More Spooky StoriesWell, the Month Of Spooky 2018 officially closed last Thursday with Jim Harold and Old Time Horror.  However, there was a problem. You guys sent in more scary stories than I could use during the month. In the business, we call that that a good thing! Why? Because that means that in this week’s podcast and the one to follow we will play those spooky tales! So, the month may be over, but the spookiness continues.

In the eight years of the podcast, I have never had so many story submissions in such a short period of time. It tells me a lot about you. You must like the podcast or at least like to tell scary tales.  On the podcast this week we have a lost time story involving a phantom Gibson Flying V guitar, A trucker tells his story about a changeling hitchhiker and a waitress from Nevada tells about a customer who wasn’t.

So please tune in this week and hear more spooky stuff.

This Week’s Podcast: In addition to what I told you above, Anything You Can Do by Randall Garrett returns with chapter 16, and we continue with Tom Williams Growing-Up! 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.

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
