RAS #315 – A Killing In Abilene

On Ron’s Amazing Stories we are packed with good stuff! We have stuff with Alan Ladd, stuff with Frankenstein and brand new stuff I call, “Johnny, is it true?” Add more stuff, a Five Minute Mystery, and you have a podcast.

Our OTR Story – A Killing in Abilene

Our OTR story has the feel of a classic Western. It also benefits greatly by a stellar performance by Alan Ladd. What we have is an episode of the classic series Suspense. It is sort of a ‘Revenge Western’, without the revenge part. The hero doesn’t want to kill his brother’s murderer but instead bring him to justice in a courtroom. A novel approach to be sure. The tale is called, A Killing in Abilene, and First aired on December 14, 1950.

RAS #313 – Who Is Helen Huber

On Ron’s Amazing Stories this week there will be sled dogs, mysteries, science fiction-scary stuff, stuff to make think, and even a famous speech. While it may sound like an eclectic group of stories. I assure you that it truly is hodgepodge, but amazing.

Our Marquee Story – I’ll Kill You Tomorrow

We have a story called,  I’ll Kill You Tomorrow, read for us by Mark Nelson. The world labeled this as science fiction, but if I had to place in a genre it would be more like horror.  I will let you settle that score in your own mind. It first appeared the November 1953 edition of “If” magazine.

Also, Tom Williams is back and he tells us a story that ties in quite well. We end the podcast with a tale that comes to us from an anonymous source. It could be the most amazing story we have ever had on the show.
