On this episode of Ron's Amazing Stories, we have a special treat for you: a throwback edition of Johnny Is It True featuring four intriguing stories that will challenge your ability to discern fact from fiction. Get ready to put your detective skills to the test as you try to unravel the mystery and figure out which ones are real. 

Following that, we have a captivating story discovered by listener Gary Richardson. The vast and enigmatic state of Texas is a breeding ground for legends, some of which are nothing more than tales. However, Lon Schuyler's story, titled Stampede Mesa, has a certain ring of truth to it that will leave you speechless.

Next up, we transport you back to the golden age of radio with a thrilling episode from the classic series X Minus One. In a world where one man's ship can be another man's prison, we present the thought-provoking story titled The Sense of Wonder.

So, sit back, relax, and prepare yourself for an extraordinary journey into the realm of mystery and imagination.

Featured Story - The Sense Of Wonder

Our featured story comes from the world of science fiction and the pen of Milton Lesser. One of the stories Milton wrote for Galaxy magazine was titled The Sense Of Wonder.  It looks at a society that is told what to do, when to do it, and who it is acceptable to do it with. But what if you were born different and had your own notion between what is and what is not. What consequences would that lead to? Milton’s story has been adapted for radio by the OTR series X Minus One and it first aired on April 24, 1956.

Stories Include - The Plane Crash Murder, Johnny Is It True - Foul Moments, Stampede Mesa, and The Sense Of Wonder
