The War of the Worlds was an episode of the American radio drama anthology series Mercury Theatre on the Air. It was performed as a Halloween episode of the series on October 30, 1938 and aired over the Columbia Broadcasting System radio network. Directed and narrated by Orson Welles, the episode was an adaptation of H. G. Wells' novel The War of the Worlds.
The first two thirds of the 60-minute broadcast were presented as a series of simulated "news bulletins", which suggested to many listeners that an actual alien invasion by Martians was currently in progress. Compounding the issue was the fact that the Mercury Theatre on the Air was a 'sustaining show' (it ran without commercial breaks), thus adding to the program's quality of realism. Although there were sensationalist accounts in the press about a supposed panic in response to the broadcast, the precise extent of listener response has been debated. In the days following the adaptation, however, there was widespread outrage. The program's news-bulletin format was decried as cruelly deceptive by some newspapers and public figures, leading to an outcry against the perpetrators of the broadcast, but the episode secured Orson Welles' fame.
Welles' adaptation was one of the Radio Project's first studies.

I am repeating these because they are beautiful old time radio shows
A very private miracle was on the CBS Radio Mystery Theater in 1978
Miracle in Manhattan was on Duffy's Tavern in 1948
Orson Welles and Joseph Cottens Christmas Show in 1944
Before Television my family would watch the radio shows. Yes I said watch, we used our imagination. When TV came I missed the radio shows because the imagination was better than what was shown on TV.
I hope you enjoy the shows like I did. Let your mind free to see what is on the show. You can see more with your mind than with your eyes.

Challenge to anonymous person who said there was no more revelation after Jesus Christ. I responded that Paul received his vision after Jesus Christ. I then challenged him to produce one injunction against new revelation anywhere in Holy Writ. He could not, show his opinion was based on inchoate nonsense from his own mind. I, however, quoted a true prophet, John Taylor, who was visited by Jesus Christ on Sept 26, 1886, Centerville, Utah: There is not a nation now that acknowledges that hand of God; there is not a king, potentate, nor ruler that acknowledges his jurisdiction. We talk about Christianity, but it is a perfect pack of nonsense. Men talk about civilization; but I do not want to say much about that, for I have seen enough of it. Myself and hundreds of the Elders around me have seen its pomp, parade, and glory; and what is it? It is a sounding brass and a tinkling symbol; it is as corrupt as hell; and the Devil could not invent a better engine to spread his work that the Christianity of the nineteenth century. (Journal of Discourses, 26 vols., 6:, p.167) I now challenge any so-called "Christian", whose faces were painted black, when they murdered Joseph, my Joseph, to prove fromt he scriptures, there is a ban on New Revelation. "There is no subject which is more ridiculed by the religious world, at the present day, than that of New Revelation . All Christendom profess to admit that the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, are still in existence , and that they are unchangeable in their attributes, and that there are just as many angels now as in ancient times; but to assert that any of these holy beings have communicated any New Revelation to man since the first century of the Christian era, is considered, if not blasphemy, something near akin to it. Now a religion that excludes New Revelation from its principles, is just the very religion that suits the devil: he is well pleased with it." Orson Pratt.

In this episode we have special guest, history fiction author J.F. Ridgley. We also introduce a new member to The Write Pack: Meredith Tate
Critique groups, partners and beta readers are a low stake experience that can be similar to that of an editor, agent, or publisher. So you have written a short story or a novel and are told you should find a critique group? Maybe a Critique Partner? And what is this odd thing called Beta Readers? Are they a pond filled of piranhas? Are they necessary steps to getting published? Why are they so important? Aren’t they always filled with just failed writers who are bitter and waiting to rip things up?
Is there a difference between college writing critique groups and commercial writing critique groups? Do they replace editors? Are they like a movie’s favorite private screening feedback group?
Should these people ever be a loved one, family member, or close friend?
What defines a good beta reader, critique group or partner? What kind of feedback should you expect to receive? What makes good usable criticism? And what is the “sandwich effect”?
How do you know if you are ready for a critique group, partner or beta reader?
What makes a bad beta reader, critique group or partner? When you break up with a group or partner like breaking up with a lover?
How do you find critique groups or critique partners writing in your genre?
Beware of the critique giver who is trying to mold you into an image of their own method. Also beware of turning it into “social hour.”
