RAS #463 – The Hallowed-Wheel Show

On Ron’s Amazing Stories this week we end the Month Of Spooky 2020 with a special Ghost Stories With Sylvia. Sylvia Shults is back and I think you are going to enjoy the result. If you are a fan of the Pitch Perfect movies then you will know what a Riff-Off is. Basically groups of singers spin a wheel to determine a topic and then they sing it. Sylvia and I will do much the same thing but using stories of the paranormal.

Program Note: Sylvia Shults is a Librarian, Author, and Ghost Hunter. She has spent a lifetime in the pursuit of the weird and strange. Her non-fiction works include Ghost of the Illinois River, Fractured Spirits, 44 Years in Darkness, Hunting Demons, The Spirits of Christmas, and her latest release Fractured Souls. All of her books are available on Amazon and you can find out more at her WordPress Home Page.

Program Links: During the show Sylvia spoke about a new story telling service called Vocal Media. You can find them at this link.

RAS #462 – Halloween Stories!

On Ron’s Amazing Stories we have seven different segments with four ghost stories from you guys. Our featured story comes from the pen of Virginia Woolf and then we will play another game of true or false with Johnny Is It True – The Halloween Edition. Berklie Apedaile, a listener from Smithfield, Utah has written a Halloween story for us and it is read by Mark Nelson. We end the show with Not So Important Times In History that sheds a little bit of light on The Vampires of New England.

Featured Story – A Haunted House
Our featured story this time is a classic from the pen of Virginia Woolf. Some might consider this tale a fluff piece and nothing more. It is short, only about 6 minutes long, but its beauty comes from what it doesn’t say. Listen carefully and I think you will get it. It is titled A Haunted House and is read for us by David Feterman.

RAS #461 – Month Of Spooky 2020 Special #3

On this special Ron’s Amazing Stories we head back into the archives of old time radio with another horror story. This time from the series The Hermit’s Cave. This episode easily stands among best and most disturbing haunted house stories from the golden age of radio. Car trouble forces a woman, her cold mannered husband, and her brother to spend the night in a deserted house with a macabre past. Again I challenge you to listen to this one with the lights out! The story is titled The House on Lost Man’s Bluff and first aired in June of 1937.

RAS #460 – Cat Stories!

On Ron’s Amazing Stories this time we celebrate the cat. Albert Schweitzer once said that there are two means of refuge from the miseries of life: music and cats. Why is that? What is about a beast that has sharp claws and teeth designed to rip us apart, also manages to calm us? The cats we will talk about on the program will range from the calming to the spooky. Then we will tell a frightening tale of a woman who believes she is becoming a cat. So press that play button and enjoy Cat Stories!

Featured Story – The Cat’s Whiskers

Our featured story this week is a study in terror. Just how powerful is the human mind when faced with the impossible. Can a human being become a cat? Who can say. This tale comes from the OTR series The Creaking Door. This is the first time we have had an episode from this show and …well I thought it was pretty good.  It is titled The Cat’s Whiskers and first aired sometime in late 1964.

RAS #459 – Month Of Spooky 2020 Special #2

On this special bonus podcast for the Month Of Spooky 2020. We play one of my favorite stories from old time radio. The House in Cypress Canyon is an episode from the series Suspense. The plot is presented as a story-within-a-story framed by a meeting between detective Sam Spade (played by Howard Duff) and a friend who has discovered a manuscript regarding a mysterious house. 

It was written by Robert L. Richards, and directed by William Spier. This episode is consistently cited as one of the most terrifying programs broadcast during radio’s golden age. It was originally broadcast December 5, 1946 and despite its popularity it only aired once during the show’s run.
