SORT BY Relevancy
Chris Hill reflects on the longevity of David Letterman’s career, as well as his role in changing the landscape of late-night TV forever. Plus, in the wake of Orson Welles’ 100th birthday, Chris draws a parallel between Welles’ struggle to make “Citizen Kane” and the growing battle between traditional broadcasters and live-streaming video apps like Periscope.
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.

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.
