This edit highlights some of my favorite moments from the original show. Welles really pushed to make his program as much like a radio broadcast as possible for the first two-thirds of the show, and these are some of the best moments, in my mind.
On 10 October 2009 I aired the entire “War of The Worlds” broadcast as part of a three hour mega-mix of Halloween treats that day. This, among many other means online, are the best way to enjoy the entire show.
I really encourage listening to and researching the show. The story behind this broadcast is as compelling as the show itself. Not only has it be re-interpreted a number of times over the years, but the affect of the broadcast was covered in depth in a fantastic Radiolab Episode.
