OnRon’s Amazing Storieswe have what we like to call an asynchronous show. Hence the title of Synchronicity. What we have are four listener stories which follow the rules of synchronic events. This is followed by a classic science fiction story with seemingly no connection to anything, and we end the program with a very synchronous event in history. Are you confused? I AM!
Featured Story – The Outer-limit
As I said, we have a classic science fiction story for you. It is special in many ways because it was so far ahead of its time in 1950. Our story comes from the seriesDimension Xand explores the distant future of 1965 and man’s first attempts to see what is out there. The story is calledThe Outerlimitand is a thriller that has all the trimming of today’s news. With all the rockets that Space X is putting up these days is first contact really off the table?The OuterLimitfirst aired on September 8, 1950.

OnRon’s Amazing Storieswe have three tales sent in by you that follow the theme ofAngel Encounters. One of these is heartbreaking and heartwarming at the same time. I couldn’t stop with the angels so I created a brand newJohnny Is It Truesegment that tests your knowledge of the angel phenomenon. Our featured story comes from the pen ofDoctor Xfrom 1963 calledSecond Sight. This one has a twist that you won’t see coming. We end the show with some viral news from the fourteenth century.
Featured Story – Second Sight
Our feature story comes from the book titledThe Counterfeit Man – More Science Fiction Storiesby Alan E. Nourse in 1963. It was brought to my attention by listener Jodi Krangle. Jodi not only told me about this story, but also reads it for us, and she does an incredible job I might add. The story is about a girl struggling with her psychic gift and how she uses it.
OnRon’s Amazing Storiesthis time we have an email from Mark, a kid named Zero-G, and a collection of listener’s ghost stories that all have the common thread of fire. We close the show with a classic from the golden age of radio called Strange New World. This tale is reminiscent of a story written by Jules Vern in 1875 called The Mysterious Island. The difference is it has a modern twist and takes place on the Bikini Islands. So press that play button and let’s go!
Our featured story is from the classic radio seriesMysterious Traveler. Imagine yourself as a pilot forced to ditch your plane in tropical waters post-WWII. Not just anywhere, but a few miles off the coast of the Bikini Islands. Do you know that place? Well, you will after our story! It is titledStrange New Worldand first aired on February 12, 1952.
This time onRon’s Amazing Storiesit is all about the past (where we have been), the present (where we are ), and the future (Stuff coming your way).
The Past – I am a basketball fan and not to brag but I went to my first game with my brother when I was ten years old. One of my favorite players was Brian Grant. Brain played 12 years in the NBA as a power forward and was the heart and soul of the 1997-2000 Portland Trail Blazers. We have my interview with him that I recorded on February 7, 2012.
The Present –Stories are our present, but do all stories take part in the here and now. Not always. All of the stories for this show form a theme of sorts. They have time in common. Specifically lost time or lost in time. You will hear three brand new listener’s stories.
The Future –Jason Dowd joins me to talk about what has been going on with him, shares a story and we talk about a new segment coming your way in late June or early July. Tune in to find out more and take Jason’s doll challenge. If you dare.
About Jason Dowd –Art is a way of life for Jason. From an early age, he created various forms of artwork using various mediums, but none was as profound to him for his own work than photography. He finds inspiration wherever he goes because he keeps his eyes open for things that will make the perfect embellishment for a photo or looks for the story that inspires him to tell it to the world as only he can.
