Remember, it’s Halloween

Well, it isn’t Halloween. Halloween was a couple of weeks ago. But way back in 1938 Orson Welles and his Mercury Theater broadcast an original presentation of HG Wells science fiction classic, War of the Worlds.

The broadcast was historic in that the dramatic nature of the broadcast had actually fooled many listeners into believing that aliens from Mars had actually launched an invasion of the earth.

So sit back and enjoy a broadcast that moved and shook listeners way back in October, 1938!
