580 AM to air ‘The War of the Worlds’
If you tune into 580 AM on Halloween night, do not panic. Aliens are not actually invading the United States. Continuing its annual tradition, the radio station will broadcast “The War of the Worlds” — the famous radio play narrated by Orson Welles, based on H.G. Wells’ science fiction novel about an alien invasion. When the program first aired in 1938, the fictional newscasts were so believable that Americans across the country feared martians had landed in New Jersey. Tune in to hear the drama at 8 p.m. Monday.
Continues a great annual tradition!
