RAS #568 – An Extra Man

Well It finally happened, a podcaster’s worst nightmare. Ron was struck down with laryngitis. He is nearly over it, but it did make putting a show together this week challenging. The good news is that you are getting all new content. The better news is that we are playing a story that we have wanted to run for a long time, but couldn’t because of its length. It comes from the October, 1930 issue of Astounding Stories and takes us into the world of mad science. 

Featured Story – An Extra Man

An Extra Man

Our featured story is quite unique. Especially when you realize that it was first published in October of 1930 in Astounding Magazine. This one was way ahead of its time. Star Trek was known for its use of the transporter. But where did Roddenberry get the idea for it? Perhaps it came from our story today. It is titled An Extra Man and this is a fun one.

Other Stories Include – The Book Case, and Ghostsitters – A Crazy Inheritance

RAS #567 – The Dog And His Shadow

On Ron’s Amazing Stories we are bringing back an old friend to the show. The Blue Beetle. The last time we heard from him was in Episode #214, and that is far too long. BB is a superhero patrolman who got his start in the comics in 1939. What I will play is his origin story from the classic radio series of the same name. Also on the show, have three stories from you guys. A brand new one from Ray Peyton about a lighter and two chilling tales that should get your blood flowing.

Featured Story – The Shadow And His Dog

The Dog and His Shadow

Our featured story is not from old time radio, or the pulp magazines, and we don’t have a guest. However, what we do have is a creepy listener story that, quite frankly, gave me chills while I recorded it. It was sent into the show by Brian Shaw from Salem, Oregon. Brian tells a story about a shadow man who stands out in front of his house watching. This is one creepy story! 

Other Stories Include – Pattern Of Guilt, 2001 – A Space Odyssey – A Review, The Purple Lighter, Did that just happen, The Dog and His Shadow, and The Drug Ring

RAS #566 – Robot Killer

On Ron’s Amazing Stories we have a pseudo theme on the life and times of Isaac Asimov. We review an audiobook written by him called Robot Dreams. We even play a game of Johnny Is It True where you get to pick which famous Asimovian quote I faked. Add to that a story from the OTR series 2000 plus that is titled Robot Killer, well I think you get the idea. Not too worry though it is not all robots there are two ghost stories sent in by Richard and Tambra that are quite creepy. 

Featured Story – Killer Robot

Killer Robot

Our featured story comes from the short lived radio series 2000 Plus. It ran on the Mutual Broadcasting System for a little over a year ending in 1952. It was the first adult science fiction series on radio, airing one month prior to the better-known Dimension X.  The tale is called Robot Killer and is one that Isaac Asimov would be proud of. It takes a good look at the pitfalls of owning a robot. It aired in Late 1950.

Other Stories Include – A Bit Of Logic, Eyes Do More Than See, Kids In The Woods, A Wolf Encounter, Robot Killer, And Johnny Is It True – Isaac’s Quotes
