I went to a presentation celebrating the 80th anniversary of Orson Welles’ 1938 radio broadcast of H.G. Wells’ “War of the Worlds”. The reason this particular broadcast has lived on in history and is still remembered and talked about today is really quite interesting. The radio play starts with a typical program playing music from … Continue reading THE ” WAR OF THE WORLDS ” MYTH – BY ELLIN CURLEY
