Every year on Ron’s Amazing Stories we turn to the macabre and take a look at the dark side. We call this The Month Of Spooky. In this episode it is all about the doll. That cute and cuddly creature that is stuff of nightmares. Movies like Child’s Play or Annabelle have turned these figurines of joy into menaces and harbingers of evil. What we have are three doll stories sent in by you; An Elsa doll, Gramma’s favorite doll, and a jealous Clown Doll. Then we will play one of the top 31 scariest stories from the golden age of radio. It came in at number 15 and while not exactly a doll story it does explore one possible origin of the Wax Mannequin.
Featured Story - Evening Primrose
Our featured story comes from the OTR series Escape starring William Conrad. A penniless poet, played by Eliot Lewis, decides to move into a department store and live in ease and comfort off of its inventory. He didn’t bargain for the race of pale mutants who already live there. Or for how they dispose of anyone who rebels against them. The story is titled Evening Primrose and first aired November 5, 1947.
Other Stories Include - Murder In A Turkish Bath, Halloween Folklore & Festivities, The Haunted Doll, Gramma’s Doll, The Clown Doll, and Evening Primrose.
