74 years ago tonight, Orson Wells air his classic rasio version of War of the Worlds. In keeping with our Halloween Tradition, PSI-FI Radio will air War of the Worlds in its entirety tonight, taking our listeners back to a time when radio was the kind of home enteratinment, and fear was a dial-turn away.
On Sunday, October 30, 1938, millions of radio listeners were shocked when radio news alerts announced the arrival of Martians. They panicked when they learned of the Martians' ferocious and seemingly unstoppable attack on Earth. Many ran out of their homes screaming while others packed up their cars and fled.
The panic that ensued lasted for weeks, involving not only the listeners, but law enforcement agencies and emergency systems.
Sit back, relax, and listen to this classic airing of Orson Wells War of the Worls, as though it were happening for the first time,,,,to you!
