The News – February 2019

In news, this time Ron’s Amazing Stories listenership is up 25%  for the month of January 2019. This is a huge upgrade and it has to be because of you. Please keep telling your friends about the show and leaving reviews wherever you listen. It is because of your support that numbers are getting better.

I like to do to check how we’re doing by googling Ron’s Amazing Stories. The other day I found that the podcast is heard on the service podbay.fm. I had never heard of this application before and was surprised to find the podcast there. Even more shocking were the forty-plus reviews of the show. Most were positive and of the five-star variety. This was a pleasant surprise and I thank all of you that listen on Podbay.

Gladdy's GoodiesUpdate on the dial-in service for sharing your stories. This has proved to be more difficult than I thought to get going. It appears that the company I want to use does not play nice with WordPress. Using it would mean adding yet another internet location to maintain. We want one-stop shopping for the podcast, and adding another site is not an option. However, we haven’t given up on this project just yet.

I am planning on a show with only UFO stories from you guys. If you have any stories that fit the bill please contact Ron. You can use the contact or story submission system to turn them in. There is no set date for this show yet, but don’t delay we really want to hear from you.

A New Segment For You!

Ghost Stories With SylviaOn the podcast this week we debut a brand new segment called Ghost Stories with Sylvia. This really isn’t a true debut, but more of a continuation of a good thing. Ghost Stories with Sylvia actually first appeared on the podcast in RAS #174 on October 7th, 2014.

Sylvia Shults is a Librarian and Author by day, but at night she becomes a Ghost Hunter. She has spent a lifetime in the pursuit of the weird and the strange. Her non-fiction works include Ghost of the Illinois River, Fractured Spirits, 44 Years in Darkness, Hunting Demons and The Spirits of Christmas. All of her books are available on Amazon and are well worth a read. You can find out everything she does on her WordPress Home Page.

Here are the links to Ron’s Amazing Stories podcasts she has been on.
RAS #174, RAS #219, RAS #263, RAS #302, and RAS #349

The News – January 2019

Ron Amazing NewsWelcome to the new year. There are going to be some amazing changes to Ron’s Amazing Stories this coming year. One of which debuts this week. Tom Williams has been bringing us his stories for some time now under the segment, As Read By. Beginning Thursday Tom has his very own segment called Growing Up.

Speaking of new segments I have just signed some new/old talent for the show. Coming this month is Ghost Stories with Sylvia. Those of you who have around know that this has been a mainstay for the spooky season for the last five years. Starting this month Ghost Stories With Sylvia is going to be a 15-minute monthly segment with author Sylvia Shults. I can’t tell you how excited I am about this and Sylvia has expressed how much she is looking forward to it as well. She is the best Ghost Storyteller available bar none!

That is not all that is news here at the podcast we are looking at adding advertising to the show. I know that many of you are saying “NO!” I will make you this promise. It will be good stuff, things I believe in and have checked out. On last week’s Horror Express you heard the first of these. Gladdy’s Goodies made their debut as a sponsor with their short commercial. If you have something you want to sell or promote on Ron’s Amazing Stories please contact us at ronsamazingstories@gmail.com and tell us all about it. All submissions will be considered.

Finally, I am also excited to tell you about a new way to tell your story. Coming soon is Ron’s Amazing Stories Hot-line. Many of you have been asking for an easier way to tell your stories on the show. Soon, all you will have to do is pick up your phone and dial. You will be able to record your stories, make comments or ask questions to me without having to write a thing. This will be a test at first. My concern is that it will be abused and not be practical.  More on this later as I iron out the details.

Best Regards,
-Ron
