I am sad to report that on Thursday, November 4th, 2021 my brother James Allen Thompson passed away. He was a good man and will be missed. Thank you all for your support.

It comes from...


RAS #515 - The One For Jim

RAS #512 - Month Of Spooky 2021 Week II

On and week two of the Month Of Spooky 2021, we are doing something different, but I think you are in for some fun. Slyvia Shults is with us and she isn’t going to be telling us ghost stories. What we will be doing is to listen to the OTR classic, The Thing On The Fourble Board. It’s quite terrifying, and I think that you’ll agree once you have heard it.

RAS #505 - And It Comes Out Here

On we have what we think is an odd show with good stuff. I have a story for you that almost made this week's podcast impossible, a shadow story that I almost couldn’t tell you, and a classic science fiction story that claims to be about time travel, but it really isn’t. That one I will leave to your imagination. So if any of that interests you press that play button and enjoy the show! Featured Story - And It Comes Out Here Our featured story this time is a bit quirky to be sure. It’s...


RAS #504 - Sub-Basement

On this time the show theme is the dinosaur, but in retrospect, that might be pushing it just a bit. In the end, you will have to decide if it was a fitting theme or not. On the program today we have stories from you guys, a classic from the OTR series Lights Out! and we end with a brand new Not So Important Times In History where we head to Mons, Belgium in the year 1914.

RAS #500 - The 500th Episode

Well, this is the 500th episode of . What can I say about this week's show? Of course, other than to thank you for allowing me to bring these to you each week.
