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 titledThe Little Peopleand comes from the dark horror seriesLights Out. It first aired in May of 1937.

WE feature a classic sci-fi adventure calledNightmareand we end on a story from the cold war calledAcoustic Kitty. I think you will enjoy yourself!
Featured Story – Nightmare
Our featured story this week started out as a poem written by Stephen Vincent Benét calledThe Revolt of the Machines. It was adapted by George Lefferts for the OTR seriesX-Minus Oneand was retitledNightmare. It first aired on July 21, 1955.
This week I am taking a bit of a break from the podcast. Not a full “no show” type of thing, but a scaled-back version that I think you will enjoy. One of my favorite classic radio series is Dimension X from 1950-1951. There were only 50 shows created during its run and on this podcast, you will hear two of them.
Featured Story #1 – The Vital Factor
The Vital Factor is about the ruthless head of Crowder Industries, who assumes the Herculean task of being the first man in history to achieve space travel. Building the ship proves easy, but to propel it at sufficient speed seems impossible until one-man arrives with an answer… and a heavy price for achieving the stars.
Featured Story #2 – Untitled Story
The Untitled Story is a sci-fi and detective story in one. Donald Hasen is hired by the city mayor to obtain an elixir of life from an enigmatic scientist. His investigation reveals a strange conspiracy that could have serious repercussions for the future of humanity
This time onRon’s Amazing Storieswe take a walk on the dark side. We have three listener stories that include it in form or another. The first one just might be the creepiest story to date. Then we head to Glacier National Park to witness a rip in space and time, and finally, Tammy encounters an entity shrouded in darkness. Jason Dowd is back with the second installment ofThe Paranormal With Jason. Jason answers listener Camille’s question about time-slips. Do you think you can handle it?
