RAS Podcast Contest

For the past few weeks we have been talking about Jason Dowd’s challenge to RAS listeners everywhere. On the Horror Express #19 we talked about David Larson’s Marionette. Jason conducted a full investigation of the little guy, had some interesting results at first, but then forgot all about him. However, quite recently the doll came up missing and Jason wants us to guess as to what may have happened to it.  

The Paranormal With Jason

Next week we will be piloting a new segment called The Paranormal with Jason. On this show Jason and I will read your submissions and pick the most creative to receive a gift from Gladdy’s Goodies for your dog.  At stake is 4 ounces of chicken treats and 2oz doggie biscuits.

So far we have four submissions from you guys and you have until Friday, July 3rd to get your guesses in. So please send your ideas to ronsmazingstories@gmail.com or simply use the contact tab on the main webpage. All stories are welcome no matter how strange. My thanks to Jason and yo Gladdy’s Goodies for this contest.

This Week’s Podcast: On the show this week we will feature the theme of synchronicity. We have synchronous stories from you guys and a classic science fiction story called The Outer Limit.

Podcast This Week – The Banjo

Never Follow A Banjo Act!

On the podcast this week we have stories about the Banjo. Now you might be thinking that doesn’t sound good …but wait!  We have a Banjo that talks, a haunted banjo and finally we have an old time radio story starring Ethel Merman that has a serial killer who women love. However, he has an even darker side and that twist will keep you in suspense. What is the title of this story? Never Follow a Banjo Act!  

So, I hope you will join me this week with a new podcast and a banjo theme. See you soon!

The Podcast This Week!

Rons PictureOn the podcast this week we will have what I think might be the most epic story we have had in the history of the show.  I received this email from Alex Short who lives in Manchester, England:

Hey Ron, Thank you for your podcast. The story I have for you was transcribed from my Journal. I finally found it after all this time. I know the writing needs some work and you have my permission to edit it. I swear too much. I don’t know what category to put this in. I will leave that to you. Thank you ahead of time for reading this on the show. – Alex

Well, I did edit the story and recorded it as well. I can’t wait for you to hear it. It takes place on a train to Dundee to see Glamis Castle in 2005 or maybe it was that 1879. You will have to tune in to find out. This story was one of the most difficult for me to read. Not because of any language issues. I had to stop and catch my breath so many times it felt real to me.

Also on the show, we have another tale about a ghost giving medical advice and a story from Astounding Stories 1930 that explains man’s early attempts to reach the moon. All in all, I think it is a pretty good episode.

The News – November 2019

We begin the blog with this email from Marvin Dell who lives in Chicago. He writes:

Hey Ron, thank you for your work on the podcast. I love it. I have just started following your art for the shows. It is also very interesting. You really have to look at it to see what you have hidden in it. Like last week you had the dancing girl in the snow. Very cool. Is there a way to view the older panels from previous shows? – Marvin

Well, Marvin, the answer is yes. If you go to our Facebook page you will have access to over 100 of them. Just click on the Photos menu item and you will see them on the timeline album. Also, I have had enough interest in them that I am creating a gallery in google photos that will include them all. Thank you, Marvin!

Next up, I have received a couple of comments that while Ron’s Amazing Stories – Blog Site is nice, it is dated. Several people have offered to modernize it. I have to say, I like it the way it is. I am asking you guys to stop by the blog site and check it out and let me know what you think. Drop me a thumbs up or thumbs down on what you think.

The month of spooky was a huge success. The best numbers in the history of the podcast. We went from ~5,500 hits to “very close” to 9000 per show. That is fantastic and I thank everyone that listened. The cool thing is that those numbers keep going up as people catch up on the shows.

We Want Your Stories!As a consequence of having so many stories last month, the coffers are bare. I need stories to share and I just don’t have them. How many stories do you think we presented in the month of spooky? I counted them up and we played 36 last month. The downside is that we are heading into the month of November without any left! So, please if you have a story to share do it now! I really need it. It can be fiction, scary, paranormal, funny, sad or even head-scratcher I am looking for anything and everything. Just head to the main website or use the links below.  

Thank you to everyone that had stories in the month of spooky!

This Week’s Podcast: On the podcast this week we have a work of fiction sent in by Abigail Atkinson titled Future Devices. Also the Month Of Spooky spills over into November with some scary stuff. 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.
