On Ron’s Amazing Stories this time we have six folks to help us out. Jackie has a question. Jeremy, Rita, and Killa all sent in creepy stories for us to enjoy. Then we have a cold war story with Ben Bova’s The Next Logical Step, and we end the show with Rosen and Cody teaming up with a tale about a dangerous ride in a 1956 Packard Sedan. Sound good?

Featured Story - The Next Logical Step

Our featured story this week comes from the pen of science fiction author Ben Bova and his story The Next Logical Step. It was written in 1962 during the heart of the cold war, and it appeared in the May edition of Analog Science Fact & Fiction. Ordinarily, the military would not want to have the others know the final details of their war plans. But logically, there might be a time where it could save the world.  

Program Note: Killadollxx sent in a story this week where he/she references a picture of the West Lawn Pavilion. You can see that photo here.
