RAS #453 – Strange Encounters

This time on Ron’s Amazing Stories we travel to Kentucky for an encounter with a ghost girl in an abandoned air-raid bunker. Then we return to the Adolphus Hotel in Dallas Texas for another encounter with the jilted bride. How about Robin’s encounter with bigfoot on Vancouver Island. Do you see a pattern here? You should, the theme for the show is Strange Encounters. But we don’t stop there, we also have a classic story from the pen of Kurt Vonnegut and we end the show with a story from WWI about General George Patton.

Featured Story – 2Br02b

Our featured story this week comes from the creative mind of Kurt Vonnegut Jr. The story we will hear was suggested by listener Warren Silva. He thought it had a lot to say about our times and where we are going. I am not so sure about that, but I will say it is quite unique. It is titled 2Br02b and was first published in If Magazine in the January 1962 edition.

RAS #452 – The Boots Of Goulburn

On Ron’s Amazing Stories this time we have a brand new Johnny Is It True segment sent in by listener Kevin Bishop, A ghost story from a prison in Australia, and an OTR horror classic from the series Lights Out titled The Little People

Featured Story – The Little People

Our featured story for this week is creepy. There is no other way to describe it. I remember when I first heard this a few years ago I thought that maybe it was too creepy for the show. Maybe it is? You’ll have to decide that for yourself. It tells the story of a man obsessed with getting even and in the end, gets just that. However, does getting even mean you win? Our story is titled The Little People and comes from the dark horror series Lights Out. It first aired in May of 1937.
