RAS #399 – Project Hush

On Ron’s Amazing Stories we have a question of character, a maid faces a shadow, a calming reflection, and a malicious orb. And, that’s all in the first 20 minutes. Then we have our featured story, Project Hush, which is a big secret. We end the show with, Johnny Is It True – Random Strangeness

Featured Story – Project Hush

We have an excellent story called Project Hush. It comes from Galaxy Science Fiction in February 1954. If that sounds familiar you are observant. This is the third story we have had from that issue. Our government is always being accused of being secretive. This story suggests a possible result of being a bit too secret. The Tag for this one reads: 

The biggest job in history and it had to be done with complete secrecy. It was—which was just the trouble!

The Month Of Spooky 2019

The Return of the VampireIt is that time of year again where we put on our masks and celebrate all things spooky. For those of you who are new to Ron’s Amazing Stories each October we dedicate the show to Halloween.  All of the stories you will hear this month will follow the scary theme. We begin the season with episode 400! Obviously a landmark show. It will include four brand new UFO stories sent in by Margarito, Barbara, Scott and my brother Jim. Also, as an added treat Jim Harold host of Campfire, The Paranormal Podcast, and Podlords will join me to co-host the show. 

Jim Harold - Podcaster

During the month I will be testing a new idea out. Starting on October 8th we will have two shows per week. The first publishing on Tuesday. This show will focus on your submitted stories and should be about 30 minutes. Then on Thursday the second podcast will publish and will be a scary story from either Old Time Radio or horror magazines of the ’50s and ’60s. It will also have the interviews for the month

I hope this turns out, because if it does I may go to it later on. We will return to the normal one podcast per week in November.  Please let me know what you think.

RAS #397 – The Next Logical Step

On Ron’s Amazing Stories this time we have six folks to help us out. Jackie has a question. Jeremy, Rita, and Killa all sent in creepy stories for us to enjoy. Then we have a cold war story with Ben Bova’s The Next Logical Step, and we end the show with Rosen and Cody teaming up with a tale about a dangerous ride in a 1956 Packard Sedan. Sound good?

Featured Story – The Next Logical Step

Our featured story this week comes from the pen of science fiction author Ben Bova and his story The Next Logical Step. It was written in 1962 during the heart of the cold war, and it appeared in the May edition of Analog Science Fact & Fiction. Ordinarily, the military would not want to have the others know the final details of their war plans. But logically, there might be a time where it could save the world.  

Program Note: Killadollxx sent in a story this week where he/she references a picture of the West Lawn Pavilion. You can see that photo here.

Tell Us What You Think!

Tell Us What You Think!Ron’s Amazing Stories is broken up into segments. This makes it easier for me to create the show each week. I work on each part until it is done and then combine them into one, hopefully cohesive, program. Each segment has a unique subject and it is my hope that you enjoy all of them. Our Current subjects are listed below. Not all of these are on every show, but most make regular appearances.

The Five Minute Mystery – Short mysteries
What’s that you say – Announcements and Comments
Audible presents – What new in audiobooks
These are Your Stories – Tales submitted by the listeners
Featured Story – Either classic or Old Time Radio.
Johnny Is It True – Trivia and Facts about strange stuff.
A Moment In Time – Time capsules from the golden age of radio.
As Read By – Short stories read by amazing people.
OTR Commercials – Great old time radio advertisements.
The Interviews – Chats with people who have stories to tell.
Ghost Stories With Sylvia – Tales From Sylvia Shults
The Horror Express – With Jason Dowd
Growing Up – With Tom Williams (Retired – I think)

Now, why am I writing this to you?  Simple I am looking to add even more segments to broaden the scope of the podcast. Can you think of anything that we could add or something I have missed? I am very interested in what you have to say. I also want to know which segments you like and the ones you don’t. You can send your comments directly to my email or use the contact tab on the main website.
