RAS #512 – Month Of Spooky 2021 Week II

On Ron’s Amazing Stories and week two of the Month Of Spooky 2021, we are doing something different, but I think you are in for some fun. Sylvia Shults is with us and she isn’t going to be telling us ghost stories. What we will be doing is to listen to the OTR classic, The Thing On The Fourble Board. It’s quite terrifying, and I think that you’ll agree once you have heard it.

Featured Story – The Thing On The Fourble Board

An oil rig worker discovers an invisible creature of unknown origins living beneath the depths of the earth. What happens to this man is horrific, and the ending is absolutely brilliant. If you’re alone, turn the lights down low and listen. It will help get you into a Halloween mood. The story was written by Willis Cooper for his OTR series Quiet Please, and it first aired on August 9, 1948.

About Sylvia Shults:  Sylvia is a Librarian, Author, and Ghost Hunter. She has spent a lifetime in the pursuit of the weird and strange. Her non-fiction works include Ghost of the Illinois River, Fractured Spirits, 44 Years in Darkness, Hunting Demons, The Spirits of Christmas, Fractured Souls, and her latest release Days Of The Dead.

RAS #511 – Whence Came You

On Ron’s Amazing Stories we begin The Month Of Spooky 2021. We have so much to get to this month that “it” will make your head spin! (And On In A Linda Blair kind of way!) I just mean we have a lot of stuff. This month we will have a Ghost Story With Sylvia that will focus on a prankster ghost boy. Then Sylvia and I will sit down and listen to our classic Halloween story, The Thing On The Fourble Board. We have some of the best stories ever from you guys that should curl toes. And on today’s show, we debut one of the top 30 scariest radio broadcasts of all time with a story called Whence Came You! It all begins as soon as you press that play button. 

Featured Story – Whence Came You

Our featured story this week is creepy. Are you a fan of the old Egyptian mummy tale? You know, when the monster is awoken and brought back to complete some insidious plan or maybe for a bloodthirsty rage of terror. Well, that is NOT what we have for you today. We have another side of that story that takes creepy to a whole new level. It comes from the mind of Willis Cooper and the OTR series Quiet Please. It is listed as one of the top 30 scariest radio broadcasts of all time and is titled Whence Came You. It first aired on February 16, 1948. 

Other Stories Include – The Principals Of Murder, Clive Barker’s First Tales, The Man Who Wasn’t There, The Home Invasion, The Halloween Ghost, and Whence Came you.

RAS #510 – Oxychloride X

This is the last week before we begin the Month Of Spooky 2021. However, on Ron’s Amazing Stories this time we do some scary stuff. So, you’re not going to be able to prepare for the spookiness. What we have are some really creepy stories from you guys to get the season going! Also, we have a story from Lights Out! that’s not spooky, but probably means the end of the world. What are we going to do? Well, press that play button to find out.

Featured Story – Oxychloride X

Our featured story comes from the OTR series Lights Out. Now you might suppose that this one would be a horror story and it does have that, but I think it has more of a Twilight Zone feel. I could definitely see Rod Serling say something like this:

“Picture this, a little man with monumental aspirations. He wants the people around him to know that he is a big man on campus. The problem is that his thoughts and deeds just might destroy the world. He is about to enter the twilight zone.” 

The truth of the matter is that this story was written thirty years before the Twilight Zone was a thing. It is titled Oxychloride X and first aired on January 26, 1938.

Other Stories Include – The Missing Ruby, A Grave Business, The Laundry Monster, Why I Ran Away From St. Mary’s Graveyard, The Old Dead Couple, Oxychloride X, and Not So Important Times In History – Khutulun.

Featured Story – Hardhats, Hurricanes, and Heroes

This is a true story written, submitted, and lived by a friend to the podcast Ray Peyton.

RAS #508 – The Boy In The Basement

On Ron’s Amazing Stories this week we pretty much dedicate the entire show to one story, The Boy In The Basement. It was written by Sylvia Shults and is in fact her true encounter with Christopher, who just happens to be a spirit. This is a rare look at the behind-the-scenes of ghost hunting and even more amazing her ongoing relationship with Chris. Something that almost never happens. Also, on the show, we have a brand new story from you guys, and of course all of the other stuff you have come to enjoy on the show. So press that play button and please come join us.

Featured Story – The Boy In The Basement

This story is featured in the book Fractured Souls: More Hauntings at the Peoria State Hospital. The book was written by our very own Sylvia Shults. The Peoria State Hospital was once the finest facility in the world for the care of the mentally ill. The asylum closed its doors in 1973, but the hilltop remains active to this day. Instead of the conversations of patients and the squeak of nurses’ shoes, the halls now echo with the beeps of K2 meters and the hiss of spirit boxes. It’s still a busy place, and for the spirits of many of its patients, it is still home.

Other Stories Include – Case of Announcer’s Delight, Lincoln on the Verge: Thirteen Days to Washington, The overprotective Ghost, and The Boy In The Basement

About Sylvia Shults:  Sylvia is a Librarian, Author, and Ghost Hunter. She has spent a lifetime in the pursuit of the weird and strange.
