On October 30, 1938, Orson Welles sent America into a panic with his adaptation of The War of the Worlds in the form of a series of news bulletins, which many listeners mistook for breaking news of an alien invasion. Celebrate the 75th anniversary of this infamous broadcast this Hallowe’en, when Wells’s story and Welles’s words get our trademark Gladstone Radio Show staging, with live music and on-stage foley that bring you back to the 1938 radio studio where the legend was born.
