On Ron’s Amazing Stories we feature one from last week that has taken the RAS community by storm. Two listeners react to the Lights on Mount Charleston sent last week by Charlie White. James White, no relation to Charlie, reads us a story from Astounding Magazine. It has Yeti, diamonds, and even rockets! We end the show with an Intermission.
Featured Story –The Diamond Thunderbolt by H. Thompson Rich
Our main story this week comes from the pages of Astounding Magazine, July of 1931. It is called, The Diamond Thunderbolt by H. Thompson Rich and features many answers to questions that I ask myself all of the time. It is expertly read for us by James White.
Locked in a rocket and fired into space!—such was the fate which awaited young Stoddard at the end of the diamond trail!

Featured Story – The Lights on Mount Charleston
This is a story sent in by Charlie White from Las Vegas, Nevada. It is a UFO story that bears an uncanny resemblance to the craft that Bob Lazar spoke about in the film documentary,Bob Lazar: Area 51 & Flying Saucers. You have to hear this one …it is amazing!

It is Bigfoot week onRon’s Amazing Stories. Why call it bigfoot week? It is because we have three listener stories that are all about the big guy. We also have a classic story fromThe Shadowthat has a gorilla as the main character and we top it off with a look at one of the greatest moments in baseball history.
Featured Story – The House Of Horrors
Our featured story comes from the classic radio seriesThe Shadow. The show went on the air in August of 1930 and kept going for 24 years! Our story is about a plot to entrap the souls of young women, but the Shadow will have none of that. The recording isn’t great, but I loved the story so much that had to share it with you. It is called, for some inexplicable reason,The House Of Horrors,and it first aired on February 14, 1938.
This is Ron’s Amazing Stories, where we begin a new year. My radio producer told me that my show was too short! So, I added more stuff. On the show this week we have a haunted limousine, a strange follower, and I take a turn and tell a story that happened to me! We also have an H.G. Wells classic that is NOT science fiction called The Red Room. Hard to believe but it’s true. Speaking of true we have a Washington edition of Johnny Is It True. So, relax and enjoy the show.
Program Note: Here is the link to the pictures for Ron’s story The Miracle Tree.
Featured Story – The Red Room
Our featured story this week comes from the pen of H.G. Wells. It is a tale that he was inspired to write after reading selected works by H.P. Lovecraft. It is a ghost story written by a man of science and It will compel you to listen. It is called The Red Room and was published by Harper & Brothers in 1898 in the book Thirty Strange Stories by H.G. Wells.
I hope that you had a Merry Christmas! This week onRon’s Amazing StoriesI am taking a break from podcasting to be with my family and friends. However, I do have a treat for you. Each year, at this time, we play the classic radio addition of It’s a Wonderful Life starring Jimmy Stewart. It is my hope that this gem brings you some joy this Christmas season.
Featured Story – It’s A Wonderful Life
This year I play the 30-minute version of It’s A Wonderful produced and directed by Frank Capra. Frank reunited with his star Jimmy Stewart to create a well-acted and fast-moving tale that really does justice to the original movie. I hope you enjoy it.
