War of the Worlds

It’s been 80 years to the day since Orson Welles’ infamous radio drama “The War of the Worlds” echoed far and wide over the airwaves. So we want to bring you back to our very first live hour, where we take a deep dive into what was one of the most controversial moments in broadcasting history. “The War of the Worlds,” a radio play about Martians invading New Jersey, caused panic when it originally aired, and it’s continued to fool people since–from Santiago, Chile to Buffalo, New York to a particularly disastrous evening in Quito, Ecuador.
