On Ron’s Amazing Stories we don’t have tales this week, but rather a single story. This is something we've not done for a while. With the Labor Day holiday upon us, I thought, why not do it as we did back in the day, but on a much bigger scale. So, this week please enjoy the science fiction classic The Day The Earth Stood Still.

Featured Story - The Day The Earth Stood Still

So, what single story can take up an entire podcast? How about the classic LUX Radio Theater production, The Day the Earth Stood Still from January of 1954. Truly an American Classic! A UFO lands in Washington, D.C., bearing a message for Earth's leaders. Klaatu has come on behalf of his world, who have been watching Cold War-era nuclear proliferation on Earth. But it is Klaatu's soft-spoken robot Gort that presents a more immediate threat. A single mother and her son teach the world about peace and tolerance in this moral fable ousting the tanks and soldiers that greet the alien's arrival.
