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.

This show will be "Bill Cosby: Facts the Media Never Revealed, Part II." We will again attempt to uncover facts about the Bill Cosby rape allegations that the media is choosing not to report. Despite the fact there are over 50 women who allege they were either raped or had some form of inappropriate sexual contact with Bill Cosby, there appears to be more to this story. Most of these alleged victims are from decades ago. They did not file criminal complaints alleging rape or any type of assault at that time. They have no DNA evidence, eye witness accounts, or physical evidence to base their claims. It appears she say, she say, she say may be ALL most of these cases are built on. Dru Hepkins of Dru Story News has been on this story for months and will come Center Stage and expose what his investigative research has uncovered.
THIS EVENT IS SCHEDULED FOR (FRIDAY) JANUARY 15, 2016 FROM 8-10PM cst/9-11PM est. The call in number is (347) 850-8390, then press 1 once connected.
