NewsBlas 30 October 2014: The War of The Worlds Trailer ( Edit)

This edit highlights some of my favorite moments from the original show.  Welles really pushed to make his program as much like a radio broadcast as possible for the first two-thirds of the show, and these are some of the best moments, in my mind.

On 10 October 2009 I aired the entire “War of The Worlds” broadcast as part of a three hour mega-mix of Halloween treats that day.  This, among many other means online, are the best way to enjoy the entire show.

I really encourage listening to and researching the show.  The story behind this broadcast is as compelling as the show itself.  Not only has it be re-interpreted a number of times over the years, but the affect of the broadcast was covered in depth in a fantastic Radiolab Episode.
