On Ron’s Amazing Stories we end of the Month Of Spooky 2019. On this show, we are jammed packed with great stories. We have an original fiction tale from Heather who asks the question, “What if no one notices me?” Dave plays a game of Ding Dong Ditching, and the guy from Iowa sent in a creepy tale for Halloween. Then we head to the realm of Lights Out! for one of the golden age of radio’s scariest ever. It is titled Poltergeist. We also complete the month-long series of special five-minute mysteries. This last one has a special actor and friend who plays the part of Sherlock Holmes.

Featured Story - Poltergeist

Do you believe in Poltergeists? Our story just might change your mind. It comes from the OTR series Lights Out! and just might be the freakiest tale we have had yet during our Month Of Spooky. Arch Obler had a way of telling stories that make you want to run and hide. Not that it will do any good. This is one of the top 30 scariest stories ever of the golden age of radio. It is titled Poltergeist and first aired on December 16th, 1936.
