RAS #436 – Dreams or Something Else

On Ron’s Amazing Stories we have what might be the most epic listener story to date! In fact, we have two stories that could be dreams or they could be something else. The first is a faceless girl who is sent to deliver a message to a woman in Texas. The second comes from Alex in Manchester, England. His story takes place aboard a Scottish train in 1879, but here’s the rub, he boarded it in 2005. Also, on the show the classic science fiction tale Into Space.

Featured Story – Into Space

Our featured story is something you are going to have to listen to from a 1930’s point of view. What we have is a story that comes from the classic science fiction magazine, Astounding Stories. It is titled Into Space and appeared in issue #02, which was published in February 1930.

RAS #435 – The Night That Bigfoot Spoke

On Ron’s Amazing Stories we have a lot of stories. These include a friendly house ghost, Bigfoot speaks out, and The Shadow hunts down a walking corpse. We end the show with a brand new edition of Johnny Is It True and it all begins with a special edition of the Two and half minute mystery sent in by Keith Clark.

Featured Story – The Walking Corpse

Our featured story comes from the classic old time radio series The Shadow. I just love these episodes and the one we have is a lesson in exceptional storytelling. We all know that murder is wrong, but what if you bring back the dead to do the job for you? This is the premise of this one and it is titled The Walking Corpse. It first aired on April 24, 1946.

RAS #434 – Special Episode

Welcome to Ron’s Amazing Stories. I know that I said in the past that there would be no more replays, but this week we have a replay. You see I got to spend a night in the emergency room and that has left me pretty down. The replay I have decided on is probably my favorite show from last year.  It is the 400th episode that features Jim Harold as co-host and we talk about UFOs. Jim and I listen to four amazing tales which include Oh My Orbs, UFO, Close Encounter, and My Seventh Summer (Sent in by my brother!). All stories were sent in by you. In fact, we have nothing but your stories in this one. So, relax and enjoy our 400th episode.
