On Ron’s Amazing Stories this time we have a theme. It is being shanghaied. Webster’s dictionary defines it as; to put aboard a ship by force often with the help of liquor or a drug. In our case we have both those. On These Are Your Stories we have two of them; a UFO encounter and a good old fashioned haunting. As an added bonus we have a brand new Johnny Is It True shanghaied edition. It should be pretty fun, unless you're the one being crimped. What is crimped? Press that play button and find out.
Featured Story - Shanghaied
Our featured story comes from the OTR science fiction series X-Minus One, and is titled Shanghaied. Shanghaiing was popular in the late 1800s. Criminals would use trickery, intimidation, or violence to enlist sailors. Once a sailor signed on board a vessel, (coerced or forged) it was illegal for him to leave the ship before the voyage's end. As you might guess our story is of another time and place. This science fiction tale tells us what the practice might be like in the distant future. The show is titled Shanghaied and first aired on September 10, 1955.
