Our OTR Story – August Heat
Now that we are in the month of November I thought we would warm things up a bit by playing one from old-time radio’s masters of suspense, Suspense! Our story stars academy award winning actor,Ronald Colman, and comes from a hot summer’s day. An artist experiences a strange series of events that appears to signal a decidedly dark fate. It is based on a short story byW. F. Harvey, is called August Heat and first aired on May 31, 1945.
Program Note:You might want to stick around to the very end. I’m just saying!

We travel to Scotland Yard for a true crime story, and a listener tells us about his ghostly foster-grandmother. Add to that a Five Minute Mystery and you have what we call a podcast.

On the nineteenth episode ofThe Horror Express, Jason and Ron are back together. We share the real-life story about a marionette’s hold on Horror Express listener, David Larsen. Also, we have a scary tale about pipe organs as told byVincent Price. We will finish the show with questions and comments from you guys. So, find your seat, turn in your ticket and enjoy this special episode.
Topic – David Larsen’s Marionette
The topic of this train ride was first presented to Jason and Ron from listener David Larsen. He told the story of a strange marionette sent to him as a gift from his uncle in Afghanistan (pictured-right). He never knew why, but the little puppet gave David troubles and bad dreams. Ten years later the doll is sent to Jason and the investigation begins. This podcast tells that story!
OTR Story – Fugue in C-minor
Our OTR story comes from the series Suspense and was suggested by a listener, James Thompson of New Mexico. It stars two great actors Ida Lupino and Vincent Price. The story was written by the accomplished screenwriter Lucille Fletcher and tells a tale of pipe organs and murder. It is called Fugue in C-minor and first aired on June 1, 1944.

Also, Mike from Chicago is back with a wonderful tale about his grandfather and I will tell you one from my days while in high school. Add to that Sylvia Shults, well you have a party. So press that play button and let’s Go!
I hope that you enjoyed Tuesday’s podcast because we are going continue with the Ghost Stories. Since ancient times, ghost stories?tales of spirits who return from the dead to haunt the places they left behind?have figured prominently in the folklore of many cultures around the world. A large amount of these tales seem to involve historical figures ranging from queens and politicians to writers and gangsters, most of whom died early, violent or mysterious deaths.
In 2014 I was introduced to whom I believe is the finest, funniest and best ghost storyteller there is. She has a way of making you feel fear and see the humor in that.Sylvia Shultshas spent years in the pursuit of the weird and the strange. She now shares those experiences telling true ghost stories and has five books on the subject with a sixth due out this Christmas.
Her fifth book,44 Years In Darkness, was the subject the last time she appeared on Ron’s Amazing Stories in 2016. On this episode, I will replay that interview with Sylvia. Then on Thursday (October 26), we will have a brand new episode ofRon’s Amazing Stories, which will feature all new stuff from Sylvia and myself.
