Welcome to Ron's Amazing Stories, where we bring you the best in classic radio dramas and true tales of the supernatural. On this week's episode, we have a special treat for fans of the Golden Age of Radio. We're featuring a classic episode of Gunsmoke, the beloved Western series that ran from 1952 to 1961. In this episode, titled The Soldier, Matt Dillon finds himself in a tense standoff with a soldier who's been unjustly accused of a crime. As tensions rise, Matt must find a way to defuse the situation before it's too late. This is a gripping tale of justice, honor, and the bonds of friendship. So saddle up and get ready for a thrilling ride back in time to the Wild West, where law and order are often hard to come by.

Featured Story - The Soldier

Our featured story comes from one of my favorite series of the golden age of radio, Gunsmoke. The stories take place in and around Dodge City, Kansas, during the settlement of the American West. Our story today comes from the first season of the show episode #53. Matt unjustly puts a soldier in clink and that leads to trouble with his commanding officer. It is titled The Soldier and it first aired in April of 1953.

Other Stories Include - Snap Judgment, The Downloaded, Silas and Katheryn Greenly’s UFO, The Soldier, The Experiment, and Sentry
