RB208 The Church at Bent Creek (part1)

Much of Bent Creek is abandoned including the general store - and the church. The reason it's abandoned is because folks there believe that the Bent Creek Church is haunted. Weird things go on at night inside the church - lights go on and off, the bell rings by itself, strange noises come from the tower, and the organ plays all by itself. Young pastor Jeff and his wife Jean are even afraid to stay at the parsonage. Bill, Stumpy and Gray Wolf have no idea what to do about the strange things that go on at the church. How will the gospel ever be preached again in Bent Creek?

This is the 6th "NEW" Ranger Bill adventure from our friends at Keys for Kids and Moody Audio. This is also our very first 2-part Ranger Bill adventure. Don't miss a minute of the action and excitement!!!

Ranger Bill mp3s

Ranger Bill is not being broadcast by any radio station or on the Internet that I am aware of. But there are several places to go for any of the 214 Ranger Bill programs on mp3 (both on CDs and by download).

Moody Audio is the best and first place to go for those mp3s. But there are several old time radio web sites that also offer mp3s. I do feel that the Moody mp3s are from the original recordings. All others are of good quality but are only second generation recordings at best.

Although I am not updating this site as in years past, please feel free to send me your questions. And I will post my answers both here and on our Facebook page.

I have been told that station KNEO 91.7fm does broadcast Ranger Bill on Saturdays at 8:00 am. I believe that TuneIn carries them on the 'Net.
